Here is a day brightener: cute DIY Bee Kind Gnome Ideas!
These gnomes celebrate the sentiment behind the Be Kind movement in the most cheerful and adorable way.
Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.— Scott Adams
Be Kind Movement
The Bee Kind craze is everywhere. Probably because there is something very adorable about bees.
But the purpose of the Be Kind movement that started it all goes much deeper.
The Be Kind Movement believes in embedding a culture of kindness in young minds early on.
They encourage them to consider how kindness (or lack thereof) can impact the world around them.
How to Be More Kind
At the most basic level, simple acts of kindness go a long way to making someone’s day brighter. It will make your own day shine in the process too.
See this article from the This is Calmer website for thoughts and ideas about how you can put more kindness to work in your own life.
