I think a lot about love and kindness and the impact both can have on the world. I made a pact with myself a long time ago that when I think something kind about someone I make sure to say it out loud TO THEM!

Think back to the last time someone paid you a compliment. Now think back to the last time a compliment came from a stranger (that wasnโ€™t hitting on you). Odds are youโ€™re smiling right now remembering it. Or youโ€™re reflecting on how long itโ€™s been. Either way, thatโ€™s why I do it. Itโ€™s so easy to spread a little bit more love, more happiness and more appreciation in the world.

Have you ever had the person in front of you pay for your coffee? If you paid it forward for the person behind, then you already know that kindness spreads. This mantra is kind of like that but itโ€™s free. It costs nothing but can change the course of someoneโ€™s entire day.

I owe my life to the kindness and generosity of others. My friendsโ€™ parents became my family when I had none. They opened their home when I was homeless and welcomed me when I had no one else. I truly mean it when I tell you, a random act of kindness can change the course of someoneโ€™s life.

This February I partnered with @onlyhuman and the amazing non-profit @bekindpeople to encourage you to take a moment to show kindness to someone. In a world where you can be anything... BE KIND.
