Abundance Thinking Act of Kindness Carnival

 

 

“Carry out an act of kindness, with no expectation of reward or punishment. Safe in the knowledge that one day someone somewhere might do the same for you.” Princess Diana

Welcome to the December 17, 2007 edition of Abundance Thinking.Today is Bloggers Unite Day and today we are supporting this with posts about Acts of Kindness.

Unfortunately very few bloggers have addressed this topic. Maybe not many people visited Blog Catalog’s Bloggers Unite page. Besides making a difference to the world there were prizes to win.

So a big thank you goes to

Lorraine Cohen who challenges us and asks: Are you game to take on this invitation?

There is great power is kindness. Love transforms people and brings out their best. Imagine how we could transform the world by deliberately being kind to people every day. People who receive kindness are then kind to others. It’s a domino effect. Imagine taking an active part in creating a wave of kindness that gains momentum around the world?

Louise Manning starts out with the wonderful quote by

Kahil Gibran once said that “Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and courage.”

There is a great post by Chris at Blogs Record :Join Bloggers Unite in Acts of Kindness that is well worth reading. He has included great ideas for Acts of Kindness.

Beverly Keaton Smith from Embrace Your Gifts and Soar!, discusses ways of using Acts of Random Kindness “While we often focus on passing ARK along to others, we can also increase the amount of ARK that we experience by following eight simple steps.”

What have you done today? Take up Lorraine’s Challenge and be part of the domino effect. Leave a comment below and visit Bloggers unite.

Today I am volunteering to help out on Christmas Day, serving lunch for people who are homeless and alone. I received a wonderful act of kindness this week for this blog from Liz Strauss, getting a SOB and my Bloggers Unite story is here.

The Abundance Thinking Carnival is taking a break until February, when it will return with a new look and focus. Carole Fogarty will be sharing this carnival with me. We are looking to make this a standout carnival.

I will take do a January Carnival with the law of attraction posts that have been submitted for this carnival. Please do not submit any further posts until the new carnival format is announced.

Thank you to everyone who has made this carnival the success it is today.

Acts of Kindness: Bloggers Unite December 17th

I have over the past week I decided to focus on acts of kindness for the earth. I thought the earth could do with some acts of kindness, so the beauty I enjoy is here for generations to come.

My concentration has been on collecting any litter that is left lying around the beach where I walk and swim each day.

There is no shortage of bins for people to put their litter into, but each morning there are cans, bottles and last Monday a large bag of bottles, cans and rubbish neatly packed into a plastic bag , but left near a rock.

Today’s haul was several bottles and paper rubbish and this half full can so well positioned on a rock, just waiting for the tide to come in and sweep it out to sea.

I Received an Act of Kindness: I am a SOB!

Today I discovered that the wonderful Liz Strauss has awared this blog a SOB and I can proudly display this badge on my blog. SOB- a successful and outstanding blogger and from Liz :

“They take the conversation to their readers,
contribute great ideas, challenge us, make us better, and make our businesses stronger.
I thank all of our SOBs for thinking what we say is worth passing on.
Good conversation shared can only improve the blogging community.

SOB

I feel very honored and has given me a great boost to get writing each day.

Thanks Liz for The Random Act of Kindness and the boost to me and my blog – very timely. I also had the pleasure to meet Liz at Blog world.

Each week Liz selects 6 blogs so head on over to find out how you can be a SOB
