could it really be that simple? on a good day i think to myself “OF COURSE IT CAN!” on a not so good day i think there’s just no way we as a species can ever get “there.” well, i’m happy to report that i have way more good days than not. in the midst of all that is [global daily news, warfare, domestic violence, childhood sexual abuse, addiction and the like] i remain an optimist. i, kathleen fontaine, am an optimist…always have been always will be. and that, my dear reader, is proof positive that deep down kindness is my religion too!
i do believe that we have the power to effect change wherever we go simply by being kind. the human race is starving for real connection and gentleness. i know that to be true because any time i simply smile at someone from a real heartfelt place i see them light up a bit. that’s such a simple gift we can give one another. paying if forward with a smile. here’s to that simple act of kindness…giving AND receiving heartfelt smiles!
peace + love + laughter + healing, -kathleen.
