February Kindness Challenge Updated 2020
This was originally published during a time when we were still reeling from a senseless and horrific tragedy. Here we are three years later, hearts still heavy about life as we know it. We must continue to challenge not only ourselves but also you. Thanks for being here.
Dear friends: It’s time to get real. We are struggling over here. It has been a challenge to continue creating content about makeup and Target shopping hauls while the world feels to be falling down around us. We have struggled with what to say here, when this space has always been so lighthearted.
We believe in our hearts that it would be a tragedy to allow our own worlds to fall apart in the midst of what is happening in our country. We have reminded ourselves that we can not save the world with the power of our anxious eyes on the news. Therefore we are trying to find the balance between using our voice and talking about planner stickers.
This quote from the poet Toi Dericotte, spoken at the National Book Awards speaks deeply to us.
It’s an ongoing process.
Part of this process involves finding ways we can make a difference in our own lives, and out of that was born our latest challenge.
28 Days of Kindness Challenge
For the month of February we are challenging both ourselves and you to throw kindness around like confetti. We’ll have a prompt for every day of the month, but feel free to come up with your own ideas.
Shout it from the rooftops.
We’ll be sharing our efforts on our Instagram stories.
We are sure it will be heartening to others to see these acts happening in tiny ways, all over the world. (Okay, we may overestimate our reach, but wouldn’t that be great? All over the WORLD?)
We can’t wait to see your kindness at work.
We hope you’ll play along all month long. Feel free to jump in at any time.
