World Kindness Day & 28 Days of Kindness

Today is World Kindness Day AND ALSO the birth-day of my new book, 28 Days of Kindness.

Four years ago I set a challenge for myself: practice kindness for twenty-eight days and see if it makes a difference in your life. Did it ever! As I focused on kindness, meditated on kindness, wrote about kindness, and practiced kindness in my daily life, I could literally feel the kindness in my world increase.

I want the same for you and today - World Kindness Day - is a fabulous day to begin!

What kindness practice can you commit to?
