Be Kind to Humankind

Be Kind to Humankind

Every year there is an Annual celebration from August 25th to 31st.  It is a time we all should reflect what we can do to make this world a better place.  Each day we celebrate in a different way.  If you want to know the origins you can check it out HERE.

How do you want to celebrate?  Here are the themed days and ways to observe:

Motorist Consideration Day Monday

 Motorist Consideration Monday is your time to practice patience and consideration towards others while traveling. This includes all forms of travel, whether it be by car, bike, bus, public transportation, or even walking.

  • Practice patience and control when you are on the road today.  Don't drive aggressively.  Give someone the right of way.
  • Touch a heart Tuesday 

Take the opportunity to show your love towards others. Just like the old 60’s tune goes “Put a little love in your heart”, and this stands very true even to this day. After all, love is eternal and a little bit of love goes a long way.

  • Write a letter to someone you care about. 
  • Encourage someone to reach that dream they want.

Willing to lend a hand Wednesday 

Sacrifice Our Wants For Others’ Needs Sunday is a wonderful chance to do something for somebody else in need. Let your desires come second on this day and give a little something to someone else.

  • Cook a meal for a sick friend.

Offer someone your time, help, or advice today. It does not have to be anything grand or large, although we would not discourage that, even the smallest bit of help to someone is great!

  • Look at for a neighbor that might need a hand. 
  • Offer to get groceries for someone who is in quarantine.

Thoughtful Thursday  

Thoughtful Thursday is the perfect time to be mindful of those around you, at home, work and in public, who may have thoughts, concerns, or needs which you may not be aware of. Try a little harder to break free of your own busy world and try to be more aware of other people’s feelings! It’s a wonderful thing when you can be more thoughtful and considerate towards others. It is quite a gratifying experience.

  • Pick up the phone and talk to someone who might need some conversation.

Forgive your Foe Friday

Every time we truly forgive, we dissipate anger’s power and move closer to our better selves. So try your best to forgive. If there is an offense that you just can’t forgive, try taking a small step toward that goal. And take another step tomorrow. And then another, and another. Time will heal you and heal your wounds if you let it. Seek quiet time and delve within your heart to see where you are wounded by anger and resentment. By bringing it out and facing it down you can burn away all bitterness with the fire of your love! Love is much stronger than hate.

  • Be the first one to move toward reconciliation.

Speak Kind Words Saturday

We all seem to completely forget that what we say has terrific influence on everyone around us. The spoken word is extremely powerful. It can make us, break us, hurt others or heal others. Think before you speak. Literally bite your tongue if necessary. Once blurted out, you cannot take your words back. Watch what you say. Try not to curse and use foul language. And speak kind words to others!

  • Be aware not only of what you say but how you say it.

Sacrifice our own wants for others needs Sunday

Sacrifice Our Wants For Others’ Needs Sunday is a wonderful chance to do something for somebody else in need. Let your desires come second on this day and give a little something to someone else.

  • Cook dinner for a sick friend.
