the kindness project aka dropping kindness bombs

hi, oh.. er.. let me just get rid of some of this dust here...wow. that's better!

HI! gosh it has been forever and i missed you guys terribly! i feel like i blinked and six months went by!

first, an update! i took a break from the land-o-blogging shortly after getting my new job. my routine was all out of whack and writing started feeling like a taxing job rather than something awesome and fun. that sucks, right? i needed a break. i needed a minute to get acclimated to my new (amazing!) job and get some sort of routine down. i also felt like i was spending all of my time online rather than doing things with my loving friends and family. but, it has been a great six months and i feel refreshed and so so happy to return to my blog and to you guys.

so here's where we are - it's almost my birthday!! eeee!!! since i have had such a great year full of love and fun new things, i wanted to do something different this year. i have read a couple of blogs where the person decided to be randomly kind on their birthday and perform x number of acts of kindness. totally awesome idea, right?

okay, so i started making a list - what small things could i do to make someone's day? the list grew..and grew...and grew! i was way past my needed 29 acts for my 29th bday and had a thought. why would i limit this? why would i stop at 29? so - i'm not. i'm going to drop kindness bombs all over this place!

it starts this weekend. and then - who knows? again - why should i limit it!? this world could use some extra kindness. (i actually got super excited about this project and started yesterday (since the place i was going is less populated on the weekend) and the smiles i got and the gratitude for something so tiny and easy to do was so so amazing. i made yummy muffins and took them to all my hardworking friends at the student learning center of the college i used to work at. they were so happy to see me and i was so happy to see them.) 10 points for gryffindor!



so here's how you can play along - first, you can follow along with all of my adventures in kindness this weekend on instagram @betterwithjune - then! you can drop your own kindness bombs and share them with us on instagram by using hashtag #kindnesswithjune

let's be more aware of the little things we can do to make someone's day a little brighter and spread some kindness. ready, go!
