Happy MONDAY! TGIM! QUOTE OF THE DAY: Practice kindness and compassion. You never know what someone else is going through or has been through. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: On August 17th my kids will start back to school. I wonder what kind of things they will be learning about. Then I wonder what life is teaching me right now. The quote of the day today seems good for any time of the year. Perhaps parents are experiencing more stress as their child enters a new school year. Or maybe they are glad that they will be entering school again after a long summer break. But whatever they are feeling having kindness and compassion for other’s is a good response. This Monday just keep in mind you never know what someone else is going through. You don’t know what is on their mind. So maybe a little kindness and compassion could go a long way for the person in front of you on the highway, or the person in line at the grocery store, or the person you pass on the street corner. AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 1) Be weird, be silly, and just be you. Don’t worry about what other people think of you. 2) I am strong and I am confident and I am kind. 3) I will do 3 acts of kindness of kind today.
