Words for Winter Solstice

with 3 comments

A reminder to acknowledge the dark, and celebrate the light. Bring kindness into these dark days.

Kindness with no expectations, kindness given to someone else simply for wanting to put good into the world. Kindness to bring warmth to the coldest and darkest of moments. Kindness to keep us open, accepting. Because when we give kindness to others, we feel it in return.

One kind word to the postmaster who is dealing with the line of ten people, all trying to ship unruly boxes.

One kind word to the cashier working overtime.

One kind word to a friend who needs it.

One kind word to a stranger, because it could be the only one they receive today.

One kind word to a family member.

One kind word to yourself.

A print of this papercut is available here.

  1. Kindness. The one thing that can effortlessly change the world for the better. If only we took the time to be kind to one another and to ourselves.

  2. Oh! I want to buy this as a print for my wall (I’m a school librarian). How?
