Kindness ROCKS!

A few weeks ago I was inspired by a Facebook friend of mine who posted about TheKindnessRocksProject. It’s a movement whose goal is to #1: inspire others #2: recruit every person who stumbles upon it to join the pursuit of inspiring others through kindness!

With everything negative that happens in this world I thought what a cool thing this would be to start in my own area just to make someone smile or give a few words of inspiration if needed. Yes, I know it’s not world peace but “One moment can change a day, One day can change a life, and one life can change the world” (Gautama Buddha)

The Kindness Rocks Project was created to spread inspiration and motivation for unsuspecting recipients through random rocks dropped along the way. It’s easy…you collect some rocks, write something motivational or inspirational on it, then leave it behind for someone that might need it.

So I started coloring some rocks and my daughter Abbey joined in (I mean…who doesn’t like to color? Right?) Then she and I spent a couple of hours putting a little kindness back into the world, one rock at a time… which was fun…like a reverse scavenger hunt! We would love to see others create some rocks too, so feel free to join in and instagram your rocks to @thekindnessrocksproject and to me @shutterbythesea!

“Your legacy is every life you have touched!”

    Was reading the book by her I used in the 1990’s 

    BOB LIND- “ELUSIVE BUTTERFLY ” (W/ LYRICS

    Part of that 3 F’s, the forgotten message at times (Family-Foundation-Future).”

    THIS SONG WENT TO #5 IN 1966.
    LYRICS: (Bob Lind)
    You might wake up some mornin’
    To the sound of something moving past your window in the wind
    And if you’re quick enough to rise
    You’ll catch a fleeting glimpse of someone’s fading shadow
    Out on the new horizon
    You may see the floating motion of a distant pair of wings
    And if the sleep has left your ears
    You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow

    Don’t be concerned, it will not harm you
    It’s only me pursuing somethin’ I’m not sure of
    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

    You might have heard my footsteps
    Echo softly in the distance through the canyons of your mind
    I might have even called your name
    As I ran searching after something to believe in
    You might have seen me runnin’
    Through the long-abandoned ruins of the dreams you left behind
    If you remember something there
    That glided past you followed close by heavy breathin’

    Don’t be concerned, it will not harm you
    It’s only me pursuing somethin’ I’m not sure of
    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

    [Instrumental Interlude]

    Across my dreams with nets of wonder
    I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

  2. Hi Bridgette. My grandson and I have been working on our Kindness Rocks Project. Got approval to “plant” our garden at Stage Fort Park. Sharing kindness with next generation. Gloucester is now on #TheKindnessRocksProject website. Thanks for creating your kindness rocks.
