As you know, I've been writing a lot about kindness and compassion and all the things to make one a better person. Well, I'd been browsing the blogosphere, when I encountered this project. It's like a meme, to be posted the second Wednesday of every month. Here's what it's about (from the website)
Too often kindness is relegated to a random act performed only when we’re feeling good. But an even greater kindness (to ourselves and others) occurs when we reach out even when we aren't feeling entirely whole. It’s not easy, and no one is perfect. But we’ve decided it’s not impossible to brighten the world one smile, one kind word, one blog post at a time. To that end, a few of us writers have established The Kindness Project, starting with a series of inspirational posts. We post the second Wednesday of every month.
Thanks to the kind and polite host, I am now part of this project :D The goal is to inspire people to be kind and I think I can achieve that.

Always be mindful of the kindness and not the faults of others. -Buddha
I get upset when someone's mean, but I get a hundred times happier when someone's nice. To the left is a picture of the Buddha I have sitting on my desk right now. They say you should keep a Buddha in every room in the house (except the bathroom, and maybe the garage if that counts) It's stacked up on books too, because he has to be face level, and any lower would be disrespectful. Anyway. He's a lovely presence in my room, and makes everything brighter. He's also an inspiration to me to be a better, kinder person. There's something about Buddha that brings out the better in the people :)
