I was recently reading in @readaloudrevival 's latest book, The Read-Aloud Family (highly recommend,BTW), and Sarah Mackenzie was talking about wanting to raise her kids to "always be kinder than necessary." That phrase struck me and reminded me of a phrase that my mom would say to us kids, "always leave something cleaner than when you found it." It's one thing to be kind, it's another thing to go a little deeper and be kind-ER than necessary. Just like if you borrow something from someone and give it back to them cleaner than it was when they let you borrow it. After checking with S.M. about using the phrase in her book she graciously granted me the go-ahead and I quickly began thinking of ways to work it into a t-shirt design.Thus the newest addition to my Etsy shop. I've listed the design in several style, unisex, v-neck and ladies classic. Pick your favorite and inspire others to be kinder than necessary! https://etsy.me/2UaMTgF . . . . . . . #kdelmuldesigns#bekindshirt#kindness#teachkindness#modelkindness#momlife#momshirt
Day 3 of #aplayfulchristmas Kindness! Great words to live by! This is how I try to carry myself in every interaction I have with people. I also try to model that with the children in my practice. The more we can spread kindness in this world the better of a place it will be. Even if it’s a smile to a passing stranger, a kind word to a friend feeling down, or gentle touch to someone needing encouragement. On another note, isint this dog just the cutest!! I saw it on @positive_psych_solutions and the message really spoke to me and the dog was too cute not to share! ❤️❤️ #kindness#connection#modelkindness#kcandthecarpenter#kindnesscounts
There will be times that you are going to want to react to people who you may be wasting your energy on......or even worse they may be so damaged that they need your help too see how they actually are reacting. Do not dim your sparkle by bringing yourself down to a rude persons level......instead help lift them up.....often it will bring your day so much more joy. (Just always remember there is a time to let it go and walk away) #slapthemwithasparkle#illuminatebymarcy#ownership#notcool#kindovercruel#peaceloveteach#modelkindness
We are so lucky to live in a place where we have the best options for medical care during pregnancy and childbirth. Some countries can’t afford basic supplies that I know I take for granted. My friends @beachwoodbaby launched an amazing project today. Starting today, for every baby sling sold, they will donate a clean birthing kit to a mama in need. Each kit includes an under pad, soap, sterile gloves, surgical blade, cord clamp, sanitary pads and baby cloths. They will be distributing these to mamas throughout Eastern Africa and India. This is such an important cause. Use the code CARLYVIP20 to save 20% off your order. Link in my bio. So much love for companies that give back! Please share this if you can. 💛
Today is Kindness Day, which had me thinking about how I can model kindness to my kiddos. Last year I wrote an individual letter to each student about why I was grateful for their unique qualities ahead of Thanksgiving break, so today I’m bringing that project back!
