"There is an older woman in our little town who lost her husband many years ago. She lives very frugally and is not friendly. The town board started pushing her to have some large bushes removed that were close to the intersection by her home. Of course, she could not afford to hire anyone. My husband had spoken with her before. He volunteered to do the work with his chainsaw. He did the work in three phases. Each time, the lady smiled a little more. She could not believe someone would volunteer to help her. Now, she sits outside in the evening and waves at people passing by. Kindness opened up her heart."

"I especially like the idea of walking with a "mantra". That substitutes for any negative tapes that might be rolling around. I find it especially helps me to say the words out loud! It helps keep me on track. It can be a low volume out loud. 🙂 Love to You! S"

"This is a beautiful idea and it is very welcome at this point in my life. While understand things like being mindful, being grateful, and being present and peaceful, it's difficult to keep all of that that as first priority when life gets crazy and 'The Daily Grind' feels endless. I'm looking forward to this new journey with you."

"Dear Donna, I love the topic 'Openness' you wrote about! I also learned as a child from my parents and religion, that I should not hate but judging was ok if that person didn't fit in my box of social or religious norms that I was told to follow. Now that I practice being more aware of my thoughts and actions, I try to stop, breathe, and ask myself how can I look at this differently with a more open mind? Most often I can turn it around, but sometimes my ego just doesn't want to let go! Then I try to forgive myself for not getting it right all the time! Thank you for sharing this topic."
