Are you One-of-a-Kindness™? This is the trademarked phrase of the newly formed Kindness Club. We’ve all heard the often-quoted aphorism: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” (Elbert Hubbard). We can all attest to the fact that, in these most challenging of times, it is raining lemons. Lindsay Andreotti suggests that kindness is an antidote to dodging this bitter downpour. Rather than focusing on chaos and discord she has made the conscious intention to look for acts of kindness. She reports, “I started paying attention to what was good and what I was grateful for… I said, ‘okay, I'm not going to look as if everything is bad and wrong and the world's coming undone… I'm going to look for some kindness.’” This effort has turned into The Kindness Club which is helping spread kindness like a positive virus for everyone to catch. She shares with us a broad idea of kindness beyond “being nice” and compromising our own integrity or our insights on truth. Sometimes telling the truth is a kindness. She also gives us advice as to how to meet a stranger and how to notice kindness in our everyday lives. She understands that there is way more kindness happening on a day-to-day basis than there is drama, negativity, and darkness. And one of the strongest forms of kindness is to be a good listener.
