Ever since the first time a saw the classic Disney animated movie, I was in love with Alice in Wonderland. It’s a wonderful story about a little girl named Alice who chases a white rabbit down a hole. She enters a magical world where she discovers the strength and potential of her imagination.
Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a beloved classic tale and there is lots to learn from its underlying messages.
Two days ago I walked into a bookshop and I stumbled upon a book between a few large stacks. The book has cheerful illustrations on the cover and I was drawn to it immediately.
The book is called ‘Creative Flow – A year in my mindful life’ and it is sort of a creative diary. It is written by Jocelyn de Kwant, a mindfulness journalist, and the illustrations are by Sanny van Loon. ‘Creative Flow’ is a workbook with 365 practical exercises that revolve around mindfulness. There are many drawing tasks, but also writing assignments and breathing exercises.
Sometimes life can get overwhelming.. Just the other day I wasn’t doing great and my colleague send me a text saying that she was thinking of me. It was a simple act of kindness and it was just what I needed. Sometimes it’s the smallest act that makes the biggest impact.
Random Acts of Kindness – Day
Tomorrow, February 17, it’s Random Acts of Kindness – day. I believe every day should be a day to be kind, but let’s try a bit harder tomorrow. Being kind and compassionate not only helps other people, but also makes one happy and healthier. Maybe this has something to do with karma. Maybe it’s just because when you do good to others, you notice good things around you.
And don’t forget; Kindness is free and most acts of kindness don’t take up more than a minute of your time.
