If it takes strength to be gentle and kind, then let OliveBox be your trainer this month. Look inside this special box for plenty of emotional gymspiration for yourself and others! Just as it takes time to build a habit (or muscle group), it takes practice being kind.
We’re so used to turning a critical eye upon ourselves for improvement – which can be a positive thing! – that sometimes we forget to build ourselves back up again.
Practice freely complimenting yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat your best friend. Give yourself small rewards, no matter how big the task.
Now extend this policy outward. Acknowledge a friend inching towards a goal. Compliment a persevering coworker. And reap the benefits for all!
Pass out these hand-illustrated cards from Thimblepress to friends and family — or leave them around town to pay it forward!
For everyone who has that one friend that won’t stop making dad jokes: give them one (or all) of these notecards from Chronicle Books. You’ll be their hero. Forever.
While April showers, let your kindness flower.
