Good Morning from Maine! #Gratitude
Welcome to Percolate Daily.
I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go. I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too.
We’re still celebrating the release of my new Hay House book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through. I’ve been chatting about the book having an overall theme of gratitude and then shared some of the messages of PERCOLATE with listeners on these radio shows:
The Best People We Know
Hay House Radio
VividLife – The Radiance Factor
Thank you for all the love, support and well wishes for Percolate!
Today at 1pm eastern, you are invited to join us on The Best Ever You Show for a book launch celebration. Call us at 714-868-0220 or listen and chat with us live via this link: If you miss the show, click here to listen on free replays.
Let’s Percolate about kindness.
I probably don’t need to remind you to be kind. However, you may be feeling like you want to remind someone else to be kind. When someone is unkind to you, someone else or to something, you instantly know it. It stings, it hurts and it can be just flat-out bothersome, particularly when you feel, perceive or are aware that the unkind behavior or comments are coming from a real intention or deliberate place or even ignorance.
Take yesterday, for example, with a review I received on Amazon. For Percolate, there are oodles of kind, sweet and loving reviews and apparently one really nasty one. Several friends of mine drew my attention to the comment asking if I could have it removed, because they so strongly disagreed with it. This all prompted me to poke my nose around and look at the customer reviews for other best-selling books. I was saddened to see most had the same type of similar, hurtful remarks on their books too and some much more cruel than the one I had received. They were unkind and uncalled for.
I had two responses: The first was to set up my own reviewer account and give out very positive reviews to books, people and other items I think are the best and worthy of your time and attention. This Percolates Kindness into the world and more positive, real, credible and helpful reviews. (I urge you to do the same if you have time.)
My next response was to send love, angels, kindness, grace and compassion to the reviewer of the nasty remark for Percolate, as the person must surely need it.
My point is that kindness starts with each one of us.
What we put out into the world, we get back in measure.
Sometimes we need a kindness reminder and wake up call.
Sometimes, unmistakably, people act kind toward us, when they could be the most mad or irritated. They overlook our mistakes, crank, negativity and so forth to help us learn and accept kindness and love by percolating kindness and grace to us in hopes we receive it and pass it on – perhaps breaking a cycle.
Kindness fosters Love, Grace and Gratitude.
Can you be kind 24/7? Maybe – Maybe Not, but generally I find most people, including myself, to be kind, mannered, graceful and so forth. We all have our moments… interesting though, we have control over ourselves, our moments and how we behave by taking responsibility.
Kindness and Grace are the types of ways to Percolate where the behavior never gets old, cold or stale.
Goodness is timeless.
Grace is timeless.
Gentleness is timeless.
Gratitude is timeless.
Kindness is timeless.
Are you kind to others?
What does kindness look like to you and how could you be more kind and loving to others?
Has anyone ever been unkind to you? What would happen if you approached the situation with love instead of more negativity?
Is your behavior in line with your values?
Are you living a life of gratitude and awareness?
Have a conversation with yourself about kindness and write down 10-15 ways you could be more kind to yourself and others.
Ask someone this question, “What do you need and how can I be more kind to you?”
