We can all be the Johnny Appleseed of love when we plant seeds of kindness.

If “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”, imagine how much better our world could be with a kindness a day!

    Russ- thank you for the idea of a kindness a day. You’ve inspired me to make it a part of my family’s day to day activities- a kindness a day makes the world a better place :). Thank you friend!

    What a great idea, a kindness a day keeps the love afloat. Every day should be kindness day! đŸ™‚

      Thank you, Ute. I believe that kindness is to a person’s life and the world as compounding is to investments. Both are like the 8th Wonder of the World. When one has kindness on the mind, the world can’t help but be a more beautiful place.


  4. You are so bloody right my friend…………..
