a true story…

Feeling humbled and grateful to have a Flair article written about my work in the Richmond Times Dispatch…you can read it here.

I always have this mixed sort of feeling about press- wanting so very much for our kindness work to move further but thinking, “Oh my lord, I hope people know what this thing really is…my feeble attempt everyday to do kindness the justice it deserves and yet sort of stumbling through. ” Ever doing the balancing act of trying not to get into my own way and being so excited that the voice is growing.

That one thing I want more than anything,  for people to know and see the power and accessibility of kindness for everyone…whether you really need it, or need to give it. It all counts….and knowing it’s so much more than being nice, it’s everything including the mess and holding tight to the one thing that guides you.

Bill Lohmann, the Richmond Times Dispatch reporter, really listened, he really heard my heart and message…and he wrote a wonderful and true story.  I am so, so grateful.

So go buy that paper or leave a comment, three cheers for the whole story and kindness. (and Bill.)

For new friends that are asking- here is where you find the Kindness Changes Everything stickers and the Soulsister collaboration with the lovely Suzanne Vinson.

special thanks to Dean Hoffmeyer for such sweet pictures too!
