“It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.”
Yesterday was one of my best friend’s 21st birthdays. She is one of the kindest, most selfless people I know, so there was no shortage of happiness and love relayed back to her throughout the day. Kindness lesson of the day: it comes full circle.
There was one particular gesture that stood out to me that I wanted to share for today’s post.
Her “little sister” in our sorority gave her a copy of Dr Suess’ The Lorax for her birthday. She told her it is a symbol of all the little things she does and qualities she has that are making a positive impact on the world. Most 21-year-olds don’t necessarily expect to receive a children’s book on their birthday, but it was the perfect representation of the impact of one kind gesture.
There’s nothing more important than celebrating people who spread their kindness everyday- and it was beautiful to see how many people recognized this yesterday by making my friend’s birthday so special for her.
