Hi guys 😊

Wow, this wind really isn’t going anywhere is it. Guess I’ve gotta up my game to keep up…

How has your week been readers? Have you managed to stay productive? If your week was anywhere near as exhausting as mine, then I understand how hard it can be to do so. A combination of late nights/early mornings, busy days and the depressing weather have all managed to make me dread this new week ahead… But then after a cheeky scroll on twitter, I got the buzz I needed to make this week uh-mazingggg.

What was so uplifting on twitter you’re asking? (yes, I read minds now too 😉) I learnt that today is Random Acts of Kindness Day. Seeing so much positivity on my timeline gave me a real boost, so I decided to collate some relevant stories for this weeks edition.

So, without further ado, here’s your small burst of positive stories to start your week as you mean to go on, ready to kick the world’s butt:

Watch this: A 4-year-old little girl that enjoys making friends wherever she goes,  formed a friendship with a grieving widower, giving him a hug at just the time he needed it.

Be in awe: This library in Orkney is giving people books and internet access today to help them expand their mind for free.

Read this thread: Spectrum brushes have asked their followers to share when they received a random act of kindness. This is the thread that started it all for me today, and my favourite came from @britneyppp : ‘I remember being out with all the kids and trying keep them all together while I bought some snacks 4 them by time i got my purse out the woman in front me had paid 4 it and told the cashier tell me shes been there keep going . Very nice her ive since done the same 4 another mum’.  The best thing is that by sharing a story on this thread, as well as making someone smile, it could also win you a cute treat!

Use this for inspiration: Remember last Christmas I shared an Action for Happiness advent calendar? They’ve also made an action plan for the month of February. So if you’re looking for inspiration on how to be kind today, give one of these a go!

That’s it from me, I hope you enjoyed this week’s edition of #makethemostofmonday. If you feel you’re doing something super positive that should be included in next week's edition, drop us a line at [email protected]. I hope you have a lovely rest of your week and this has inspired you to not only keep going until Friday, but to give it your best possible shot 😊

Remember readers, in a world where you can be anything, be kind ❤️
