Blogmas Day 11: Monday Motivation — Kindness Challenge

No matter what your thoughts are on the things going on in the world right now, I think we can all agree everybody could use a little more kindness in their lives. Ever since I was little, I remember my mom always telling me and my sisters, “Be kind,” and I’ve really done my best to always try to live by that simple advice. I hope I can help you take my mom’s advice to heart too with this installment of my Monday Motivation series. Keep reading for a fun little challenge from me to help bring more kindness into the world!

 

The world could definitely benefit from more kindness right about now. Today's post features a challenge to do something kind for someone else this week. | BLOGMAS DAY 11: MONDAY MOTIVATION — KINDNESS CHALLENGE | HONEYBEE JOYOUS

 

I try to let kindness and gratitude inform almost everything I do. There’s so much to be thankful for and I find that appreciating what you have can help you be kinder to others and therefore make the world a better place.

 

The challenge:

My challenge to you is to do at least one random act of kindness this week. It can be paying for a stranger’s coffee, helping a friend study for their finals, leaving nice notes for your hallmates on their doors, or anything else that adds more kindness to the world without expecting anything back in return.

 

If you want to promote this little challenge and encourage others to be kind to one another, here is a graphic you can post on social media. Be sure to use the #HBJblogmas hashtag so I can see your post!

It’s not always easy to be kind, but it can make a world of difference. You never know what somebody is going through and even just a little compliment or staying after class to chat can really pick somebody up when they’re down. It’s especially a great time since we’re in the midst of the holiday season. Do something kind this week and help make the world a more joyful place!

 

{Has someone ever done something kind and unexpected for you? How did it make you feel? Do you have an idea for a random act of kindness that other people might want to try? Leave me a comment below and tell me!}

  • What a cute idea, especially during this time of year!

  • It’s sad that I’m reading this and thinking that the opposite happened to me yesterday! A little kindness definitely goes a long way, you never know what another person is going through.
