i’d help move your furniture

Ronad Dahl says that if you think kind thoughts your face will light up and you will always look lovely.  I tend to agree.  I take it a step further, however, and think that if you share those thoughts you will actually be lovely.  Actions speak louder than words, right?

TheDuck&TheOwl are poster children for speaking kindly of others.  Each day they write eloquently and sincerely about the things that make them, and others, smile.  When they asked to be involved in a random act of happiness (rah rah rah) promoting kindness, I almost did a happy dance.

The group of us created a dozen unique compliment cards, and then we took to the streets of the Midwest to spread some kindness.  TheDuck&TheOwl worked their magic in Milwaukee, and I got busy in downtown Minneapolis.
Here are copies of the kindness cards I handed out:









City dwellers are famous for being absorbed up in their own minds and consumed by individual tasks.  Let’s break the cycle and speak kindly to one another.

  1. Wow, what an amazing act of kindness! This is something I’ve always wanted to do, but have never had the guts to do it (I’m a bit shy when approaching people sometimes). Kudos to you! I bet whoever was on the receiving end, had their day brightened up because of you. How inspirational!

  2. Um, you are my total hero! What a fun experience and I’m sure you brightened so many people’s days! My bff once handed out cute Valentine’s cards on her way to work. The DC folks were a little surprised by the random act of kindness but totally appreciated it. I think it is so easy to go into the standard blank Metro Face when I’m out and about. Your sweet messages are a great reminder that personal connections are the best, even with strangers. So great!
