How to move a mountain…The Power of Kindness

Continuing on with my new Friday series, I am reposting an article I wrote in December, 2016, just one month after I got my blog up and running.

Here’s the main article:

This blog is a continuation of my previous blog: The Kindness Boomerang. The video below is a Ted Talks video of Orly Wahba. She is the maker of “The Kindness Boomerang” film and founder of the organization Life Vests Inside.


For more information go to: Life Vest Inside

 Okay, I’m taking a bit of a risk with this one. You see, the video is on the long side, 21 minutes. But, I can tell you, it’s worth your time. I was hooked from the first seconds. She is a great speaker, with a wonderful story and exceptional message, which is fitting for this holiday season. If I reach just one person with Orly’s message it will be worth it.

“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” ~ Dalai Lama

Do me a favor, if you do watch the whole video, from beginning to end, leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts. I’d love to know what you think.

So, grab a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and listen to Orly tell her story…and find out how to move a mountain.  Then, go out and spread a little kindness.

About Tamara Hoerner (1348 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.
