Doing Good + Being Kind = POWERFUL.

We make such a huge difference in each other’s lives – more than we realize.  We are that powerful.  We really do have “super powers” in this regard……I hope I have your attention now!


“Do good.  Be Kind.”  These two phrases speak loudly to me.  To be very transparent and clear, I am not living my days with a perma-grin on my face, or leaping around sprinkling glitter all over (although this is on my “one day to-do list”)!  I go through ups and downs, face challenges, jump hurdles, stumble over some hurdles, wonder “why” and “why not” – I’m sure you can relate.  But WOW, have I realized the power within me to change my own moment, day, outlook and life. 


We each have the ability to tap into and realize our own power and we can use that gift to not only change our own experiences but to make a difference in the lives of others.  The ripple effect goes further than we can reasonably comprehend. 


In a world where many of us are buried in technology, stressed, searching for meaning or fulfillment, feeling alone, feeling lost or insecure – these two concepts can make a HUGE difference.  “Do good.  Be kind.”  It changes everything.  Here are a few suggestions:
  • C.A.R.E. (Celebrate, Appreciate, Respect, Encourage) for yourself and others. You can find a list of ideas at
  • Make amends, make peace with your past so you can fully experience the “here and now”
  • Reach out to family and friends for your own support or to be of support
  • Reach out to family and friends to connect or to reconnect
  • Do not judge, be open – we all have different stories and support systems.
  • Notice people – people are really needing to just be “seen”
  • Acknowledge people in a positive way
  • Be brave, be “you” – let your own unique light SHINE!!
  • The things we say and the things we don’t say equally make an impact on people. Think about this one please! 
  • Speak your truth
  • Be confident
  • Smile!  This simple act can make a huge difference to another person.  We do not always know what someone else is going through.
  • Trust yourself
  • It is never too late to change your attitude, your focus, to learn, to grow, to evolve…. the possibilities are endless.  Trust me on this one!
  • Sprinkle glitter for extra awesomeness (and let me know how that goes!)
On a closing note, here is one of my favourite quotes from the movie, The Wizard of Oz:

           You had the power all along, my dear” – Glinda the Good Witch 


Here’s to our “super-powers” and a good kind of change…..for everyone!
