Quick Hits of Kindness – Bathroom Reading Edition

Am I the only one who takes their phone into the bathroom?  I mean, I understand there has to be an “order of operations” to avoid cross-contamination, but I have to read *something* and I’ve let my magazine subscriptions lapse.

I find inspiration in the oddest places and hope these stories make you as hopeful as they made me.  Much better than reading the back of a shampoo bottle.

It’s a shame that such drastic measures have to be taken, but better safe than sorry.  I hope our son is as quick thinking as this guy was:

To the guy who helped my niece tonight! from TwoXChromosomes

How Arnold Schwarenegger responded to a hateful person:

Some guy acts like a dick about the special olympics post on Arnold Schwarzenegger's facebook page, gets shut down

This TED talk spoke to me.  It confirms my suspicion that we can only focus on one thing at a time.  If we can just focus on the few positive things in our lives, each day will be filled with hope and joy and promise.  TOTALLY not his point – he’s a pickpocket – but that’s what I took from it.

Take a few moments for yourselves this long weekend.  Cleaning, cooking, and large family gatherings can tire out even the kindest soul.  Focus on the love of the people who surround you.  Don’t take anything personally.  Do your best and laugh away the things that go wrong.
