The Kindness Boomerang

There are a multitude of holidays and religious festivals during the month of December, whether it’s HanukkahChristmas, or Kwanzaa. Other religions have celebrations as well, such as the Hindu festival of Pancha Ganapati, or the Buddhist Bodhi Day. There’s also the pagan celebrations of Yalda and Yule.

Yes, there are many reasons to shop, celebrate, eat, decorate and give gifts. We get caught up in the commercialism of the season and forget the one thing on which all of these different religions and beliefs agree: the Golden Rule: love one another as you love yourself. Treat others as you wish to be treated. Put simply: Be kind.

During this holiday season, on this inspiration Friday, I’d like to show you a short 5 minute video that illustrates the power of a simple, small, random act of kindness. This video is from the phenomenal organization: Life Vest Inside. Enjoy, and Happy Holidays.

About Tamara Hoerner (1145 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
