You’re Invited!— Way back in 2014, I decided to create a 30 Day Kindness Challenge and here we are nine years later...
I'd love to invite you to participate with me this year!
Here's all the details!
- We all need to feel loved and valued but sometimes it takes giving love to receive it. So this is a great opportunity to give love to others and feel the benefit of just... giving.
- It feels good.
- In our high-tech world, it has become apparent that we are slipping further and further away from our relationships with other humans. The challenge takes us away from the computer and cell phones, and puts us in play with others.
- If the global shut down of 2020 taught us anything, we need one another. We need human contact. We need to KNOW that we belong.
- If the response is anything like what I'm thinking, this could become a worldwide event! How awesome would it be to say you were a part of a Kindness Challenge that went WORLDWIDE!! If we all just focus on our little corner of the world... imagine how that would spread. It's not an impossible feat, if you think about it.
- Love is contagious. Maybe it takes YOU to start the trend and it will take off from there...
Thirty Days in the Month of June
I've discovered you can do just about anything for 30 days if you put your mind to it. You could write a book. Give up sugar. Start a business. Drink 8 glasses of water in each day. Repaint or redesign a room in your home.
If we narrow down the time frame and put some effort into it, the results of what we focus on could be absolutely amazing.
30 days of kindness... 30 days of putting others first, going above and beyond, putting some focus on ways we can show kindness.
So every year, around here... we designate June as our Kindness Challenge month.
They say that a new habit can take hold by repeating the action for at least two weeks. BUT, it is 80% MORE likely to stick if it is practiced for thirty days! It is also proven that kindness isn't necessarily a trait that we are born with, but it IS an action that can be learned if taught and practiced. It's true, apparently, there are those out there in the world that don't know how to give or receive kindness. SO- I'm hoping to change the world for the next thirty days, and I'd like for you to come along!
I know that there are tons of excuses running through your head right now as to why you can't (or won't) participate... "I'm really busy right now." "I don't like to talk to people." "I don't have any money." "It's only 30 days, what good will that do, really?"
I'd really like to impress on you that it's ONLY 30 days and that it won't take up too much of your time. You control how much time you devote to it!!
- It's COMPLETELY FREE to participate
- You don't have to sign up (but if you'd like to download a really fun RAK list I made for you, you are most welcome to!)
- There's NO cost (unless you choose)
- It's be FUN!!! And I promise you, it WILL be rewarding.
All you have to do is commit to 30 days of simple acts of kindness and agree to share your results! You don't have to tell us the details, just let us know you did something and how it made you or them feel! You could share something like: "I did an act of kindness today and the reaction was ______________" That way we can still share in your joy!
I'll be offering up suggestions and even specific mini- challenges as we go along!
You can do it on your own, or with your family! Many of the mini- challenges were created so the families can participate together.
But sometimes it's just more fun when you involve others. Invite others to participate! (Hebrews 10:24) Let it be contagious! I am anxious to see how many we can get to join with us and how far across the globe we can reach!
Can we at least get our 50 states??
I'll be right there with you and I'll be encouraging you on this blog as well.
AND~ to keep you inspired and motivated, I've got some prizes to give away at the end of our 30 days!
So without further adieu, let's begin the 30 Day Kindness Challenge!!
If you want to join- leave a comment below this blog or follow me onFacebook and leave your commitment statement there! Let the world know (and me!) that you are stepping up to meet the 30 Day Kindness Challenge!!
Or you can download the free Random Acts of Kindness Suggestion List and get "officially" signed up there!
Spread the word!! It's always more fun doing stuff with friends! And think of all the new things you could think of when you have someone else plotting with you!
Get Out There and Do Your Thing! Show some love! Spread a little kindness! Need some ideas to get you started? Check this blog (the one that got this whole thing started!) for a few ideas! Need more ideas? Follow me on Facebook! I'll be in there every day giving out new ideas and offering inspiration and motivation and don't forget to read the comments that others are leaving! My tribe of followers have some of the BEST ideas for ways to participate in the Challenge! This is one time I give you permission to steal ideas and put them to your use!! Lol!
Remember, you have 30 days- so that gives you a few days to think of some ideas and maybe set back a few dollars if you're planning to do some monetary kindness. There are SO many opportunities to show kindness! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Share your progress with the rest of us! Follow me on Facebook and add your results along with others! Read what everyone else is doing and pass it along! Be sure to tell everyone that you're participating in the 30 Day Kindness Challenge and maybe they want to do it too!!
If you'd like to share any of the Kindness Memes that are on the Facebook and Instagram pages, that would be awesome. Your comments, likes and shares would be most helpful to get the word out.
Comments will also be open on the blog as well.
I can't wait to see where this leads!! And I am so glad you're here! It's going to be SO awesome!! Please share the posts you see onFacebook so we can determine how far and wide we can really get this thing to go!! Can't wait to read your name below!!
And let me be the first to offer these words of kindness. You are valued and loved and by participating in the30 Day Kindness Challenge, you will be helping others feel loved too. Thank you so much for joining with me!!
Let's go make a difference!!
Put A Little Love In Your Heart & Share It
