I ventured out today to grab some groceries and paid for them at the eight items or less lane. 
IIt's been a really long week (feels more like a month) and so I decided of do something to make myself feel a little better and hopefully delight someone else too. 
I looked at what the shopper behind me was carrying and gave the checkout person money for her groceries.
It was just a little act of kindness but I hope that it was a lovely suprise. (I scooted out quickly so she didn't feel embarrassed or try to give it back!) 💙
Is there something little that you could do to help spread kindness (online or offline)? Let me know your thoughts or any kindness acts that you've done or received? .

We have been watching the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings this week. ❤️We heard this last night, and I paused it to just let it sink in. ❤️
It is not for us to choose nor decide what is happening right now.  But it is our choice to choose what we do with it. 😳😳 #stayhome #hobbit #lordoftherings #choosekindness #choosetolove #seekchrist #choosetoserve #putyourtrustinhim

how to deal with impulse buying:
🌿 think about the last time you made an impulse purchase.
🌿 find out why you did. (maybe to reward yourself? because you had a bad day? because you went shopping out of boredom?).
🌿 find other ways to cope with those feelings. write them down. (e.g. have a nice bath to reward yourself / call a friend next time you have a bad day, etc.).
🌿 avoid shopping centres and browsing through online shops on days when you’re sad or bored.
🌿 keep a list with things you truly want and need and wait at least 1 or 2 weeks before buying.
🌿 be proud of yourself when you stop yourself before buying.
🌿 don’t be hard on yourself if you do happen to make an impulse buy. nobody is perfect.

Thursday's #seekingsparklesofjoy 
1Beautifully crafted pieces that bring me joy to wear & to look at. All the more special to me because they're handmade by my talented friend @karenhowarthceramics 
2 @drchatterjee interviewing @davidrhamiltonphd - I often listen to #feelbetterlivemore interviews whilst I'm working in my #herbaldispensary. This podcast filled me with hope & lifted my spirits. Being kind makes us feel good & has measurable physical benefits. David Hamilton calls these the 5 side effects of kindness - it makes us happier, it's good for #heart health, slows ageing, improves relationships & it's contagious. It reduces inflammation, oxidative stress & immune dysfunction - factors which underlie many health conditions. And the #mindfulnesspractice of #lovingkindness has been shown to reduce the body-wide inflammation response to #stress. When we are kind to someone, they are then more likely to be kind to someone else in the course of that day - this effect, like the ripples in a pond, spreads on outward from person to person - how marvellous!  Right now, practising kindness feels like a superpower, freely available to us all - a gift we can give to our families, our communities & ourselves.

3 My #meditationstool - I love the simple design, the feel of the smooth, pale wood, how the curved feet help to keep me sitting upright & comfortable. In recent days especially, meditation has been a much needed anchor, helping to settle my agitated, juddering thoughts. Sitting here, even for a few minutes a day, being still, letting thoughts pass without getting lost in them, practising coming back to my breath, again & again & again - steadies me during these uncertain times.

Jesus = kindness? 
It’s fascinating that many, regardless of their religion, equate Jesus with kindness. Indeed, how we mirror Jesus’ character will convince people of the truth of Christ – by being kind, amongst others.
.
Kindness can at times be tough, but it can also be shown in basic ways. For me, I like to interact with service people (e.g. cashiers, parking lot attendants) who often are visible immigrants and that we can view as part of the machine rather than interesting personalities. Often, they have unfamiliar names, and I sincerely inquire as to the meaning. A smile, a greeting, a “God bless you” costs nothing and brings us both a smile. Warning: it can be addictive!
.
In these days of global thinking, we like to think big. However, we need to cultivate our character much more—often in small, everyday actions that demonstrate Christ in us. So be visionary, be full of faith, be daring.
.
But first and most of all, be kind.
