Monthly Resolution: Spreading Love

Resolution:  Spreading Love through Acts of Kindness

For the month of July, we are hoping to start the habit of living with more joy and compassion, and spreading love to everyone we meet.  Sounds super easy right? ;)

I recently started rereading a book I read last year called Mother Teresa's Secret Fire by Joseph Langford.  Whenever I read about her acts of charity and compassion, it amazes me.  She was so kind to everyone even when she was having a bad day.  I think my favorite thing about her is that her love was shown in simple ways - listening to people, helping feed them, holding someone in consolation.

This month, I'm going to strive to be nicer, especially to my family who tends to get the brunt of my crankiness.  I'm going to try to do little acts of kindness everyday; even if they are basic things like smiling at everyone I see or just listening instead of talking.  It is amazing how simple things can make such a big difference in someone's day.

Instead of a check-in halfway through the month, we are going to post some of our ideas for acts of kindness every week.  I'm really looking forward to this resolution! :)

Do you ever do random acts of kindness?  I'd love some more ideas!
