Mandela Day

random acts of kindness

Inspired by Madiba’s (Mandela) Birthday Celebrations and all the talk of  – “what are you doing for your 67 minutes of giving back”…

I felt inspired to do 67 Random Acts of Kindness – ok – given, there was some thought that went into them (so they weren’t entirely random, but full of kindness and I gave out sweets sometimes too… the reality is, it just felt wonderful to BE as humanKIND should be, it always does feel wonderful…

Noticing people, all people, without noticing difference in culture or class or whatever. Just sharing a flower with a beggar, who immediately lit up -as she tucked her rose into her pocket or the lady farmer in the coffee shop, who shared a hug and environmental concerns, or the grandpa who loved his gratitude stone or the many happy faces who just appreciated the interaction… When we open up and notice the opportunities to connect with people – the magic of LOVE flows and always creates joy.

So Happy Birthday Madiba and thanks for inspiring us ALL to be better versions of ourselves.
