I find it far too easy to get caught up in superficial things everyday, and once caught up, stay there.

Life is beautiful. Life is short. More and more I learn what a big deal kindness is. I found this quote in a memoir of a friend's father who passed on unexpectedly. It inspired and resonated with me-

"I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. Also in singing, especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed."

-Mary Oliver.

What if tomorrow, instead of focusing on ourselves- our insecurities, our stresses, we focused on being kind to those around us. I have a feeling a lot of lives would be a lot better and a lot more fun.

Have a beautiful week. Make it beautiful. Love and be loved.
