I'm super excited! That's because exactly one week from today, Saturday, April 23rd, is Day 1 of 60 Days of Deliberate Kindness! (It's also my 60th birthday, so I would be remiss if I didn't say I'm excited about that as well!)
If you haven't heard about it yet, I decided that since I was turning 60, I wanted to do something special to celebrate. And, since I need to practice kindness just as much as anyone else, I decided that the best thing to do was ask others to join me in planning - and doing - 60 Days of Deliberate Kindness! Why 'deliberate', not random acts of kindness? Because kindness is too important to leave to chance! When we take the time and effort to plan ahead, we will make sure that the day-to-day 'busy-ness' of life doesn't sidetrack us!
It's time to get planning! That's why I've created a 60 Days of Deliberate Kindness Weekly Planning Calendar for you to use to plan and out your Deliberate Acts of Kindness for the Week! You can download it right here:
My fabulous and very kind friend, Sumitra Vig, created a list of weekly Themes for you to plan your kind acts around, and has also put together some fabulous ideas to get you started on Week 1's theme of Kindness to Family! You can download both of these here:

Thank you so much for your deliberate kindness Sumitra!
Also, this week, during a meeting with friends from The World Kindness Movement, I found out that Jenny Haase, Founder and President of Kindness from the Heart, is celebrating her 60th Birthday on April 17th! I asked Jenny if she'd like to share in our 60 Days of Deliberate Kindness...and she said yes! So, Happy Birthday Jenny! The more we deliberately share kindness, the more it spreads, and the more we create a kinder, better world!
My heartfelt ask to you today? If you haven't joined the 60 Days of Deliberate Kindness community yet, please do! We have over 70 people so far...and the more the merrier! Because the best gift that anyone can give or receive, is the gift of kindness! Just click here to join!
Can't wait to see what everyone has planned! Please post photos of your Weekly Kindness Planner in the comments, or in our 60 Days to Deliberate Kindness Event or Group!
