Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

September 1
 and thanks to some nudging from Suzan at
it's time to think again about what we can do for the World.

My submission this month is not huge...just a commitment each day for the next thirty days do something nice for someone... say something nice to someone...
for no other reason than for love.

They say it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, so why not join me and take the next month
to form this one 

...with your own, with your own two hands...


  1. Great video and how perfect for this post.
    Changing habits for the better everyday is a good start!

  2. Such a wonderful thought, and a great video! I think kindness is underated..there simply is not enough of of it in the world! I love that you're spreading kindness in the next month. That IS huge, and you've inspired me to do the same...:)

  3. I love this idea. I believe most of us try to be kind and friendly, but becoming more aware of our actions and in the moment especially with strangers will change not just their lives, but ours.

    Thanks Jacqueline!


  4. It is so easy to share a smile or kind words and it feels goooood!

  5. This is truly beautiful, touching and inspiring..........when this kind of beauty and love come from peoples' hearts, Change CAN happen. Thank you for giving us hope, and warm hearts!

  6. I love, love, love that video! Fabulous! A great song and photos to go along with it. Very inspiring indeed! I have to share it with everyone I know. What a lovely post. I do try to spread a little joy and kindness each and every day, but now I am really going to amp it up. Wishing you all the best. :) Tammy

  7. I think being kind to others is a wonderful way to do something for the World :-) There are too many people out there who are either too rude or too rushed to do the little things that mean a lot, like saying "please" and "thank you".

    Me and my two hands are with you :-)


  8. Beautiful video and a beautiful way to make our world a better place.

    btw, noticed the Thich Nhat Hanh quote in your sidebar. Love his teachings.

  9. Thanks two hands are applauding you all!

  10. such a lovely video and such a sweet, simple message!! love it!

  11. This was beautiful; simple gestures of kindness mean so much~ Thank you!

  12. Thanks for the inspiration Jacqueline...a wonderful way to live daily...after the 21 days, lets hope kindness giving becomes thoughtlessly normal to the point that we don't even know we're being kind...we just are!

    Sweet video ~ sweet song ~ sweet idea!


Go on...make my day...
