I am so happy when people show one another kindness ‘just because’. I’d like to see this as part of our every day patterns. I am willing to start with a week…

This week is Random act kindness week. Check out the link.

I was watching Ellen Degeneres show the other day and she was talking about it with one of her guests, a basketball player who wanted to give back. He and his wife apparently do this all the time. They will show up at a Walmart and just pay for the people in line or go into a store and approach a couple and ask if it is okay if they pay for their children’s shoes. They are careful not to offend and really express that this is their way of giving back.

Acts of kindness do not have to involve money: it can be thinking of a friend and doing something really nice for them when they least expect without the expectation of getting something back.

I was out last night with a few friends and one was telling me that she was in New York and bought a magazine for her and a friend. She did it just because she thought her friend will really like it and mailed it to her. The friend was so appreciative by this act of kindness.

As we enter into this long weekend (it’s Family Day on Monday for my province – Toronto, Ontario and President’s Day for the USA) I want you to do one nice thing for a friend, one nice thing for a family member, one nice thing for a stranger and most important one nice thing for you.

YES you! Happy Valentine’s Day.

I too will participate.

I love to give and I have learned to receive graciously.

I want to wish everyone a great weekend…. enjoy.

All my love,

Maria Aragon just did what she loved to do … sing. She sang the Lady Gaga song, Born This Way, posted it to YouTube where she got some nice attention. All changed when Hilton Perez made Lady Gaga aware of this and it brought a tear and smile to her eyes. See, Lady Gaga is human and she was having a bad day… Then to hear her words being sung with the purest intention reminded her why she wrote the song and why she sings in general.

This propelled Maria to “mini-stardom” and within a week or so she was on Virgin Radio with Lady Gaga and then performed on the Ellen DeGeneres show. WOW. Never waiver from your dreams.
