“Remembering 9/11 And 9/12”

We’ll always remember September 11, 2001, yet we seem to forget what it felt like to wake up on September 12, 2001.

We woke up to a world that had become “one.” We woke up to a community that had become “family.” We woke up to neighbors that had become “friends.”

We woke up to a world that had become exactly what it should have been all along: one of love, kindness and compassion for everyone.

We woke up to a world “united,” not “divided.”

As we remember the tragic events of this day 18 years ago, it’s important to remember how the world felt the next day.

Today my thoughts and prayers are for all of us as we remember the events of 9/11 and that we remember the day that “the world would live as one.”

We can still be that world and we can be that world “together.”

Wishing you love and light,

“Just be kind…”

I see so many references to “random acts of kindness” that I have to wonder just how many of us live by that. There needn’t be a certain day to do it, or a contest to see how many “acts” you can perform. Shouldn’t we all live each day by sharing an act of kindness to someone? Has the world gotten so busy that we’ve forgotten to take a minute or more to do something for someone else?

I love to make someone happy, to make them smile or laugh; I’m grateful if I can help someone through a bad day or simply let someone know how much I love them. I believe these to be “random acts of kindness” as well.

The world is focused on so many “other” things at the moment, and let’s face it, there are days that we, ourselves, get caught up in the drama and the rat race of life. Yet, “kindness” is stress-free, drama-free, and one of the easiest acts to commit! “Kindness” to others is a two way street; everyone benefits from it.

Don’t you feel good when you’ve done something for someone else? Can you imagine a world filled with people that act from the heart and with kindness? It’s not a fantasy to imagine that, because it all begins with “you.” And as I always say: “It’s time to make a difference, and we can make a difference together!”

Make every day an “act of kindness” day and watch the world change!

Wishing you love, light, and kindness,
