While giving myself a brain break during the UbD Workshop I’m attending, I stumbled upon this thought. I’m a big proponent of kindness in general, but the reminder that kindness is free— and powerful— makes me anxious to get back to work in my classroom to help a new group of student see just how important kindness for kindness sake can be! 🥰
And the first interview on the Squad Life podcast is LIVE. It was meant to be that I stumbled across @nicolejphillips.
She has used kindness to transform her life, perspective and health. An author, breast cancer survivor and former beauty queen, Nicole shares so many tangible tips in this interview. .

Everyone and their mamas are promising quick rich businesses, fast growth and large scale development immediately. For some reason people think that because it's on social media it's true. But these ideas are all the same quick rich ideas from the past just using different platforms.
Usually quick rich ideas involve something unethical or a pyramid scheme.
Not saying no one has achieved this properly but it's rare.
You want to grow a business.
It takes time.
Especially if you want it to be healthy and if you want it to last.

✨ Just a friendly PSA ✨
I tell my students every year the number one thing I want them to learn from me is to be kind. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I LOVE #teachergram
and it upsets me to see anything but kindness. We are responsible for the future of the world, so we should show that same kindness to each other! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve tagged some of the kindest teachers I know! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Last night at about 8:30, I happened to notice one of the little hummingbirds sitting on top of its water holder. She seemed to be enjoying the silence of the evening as the darkness started to settle in for the night. I watched her sitting there moving nothing but her little head just like any other observer of life would do. As I looked at her, I wondered what she was thinking about. Maybe she was remembering some of the many adventures she had been on traveling back and forth to possibly Mexico during the cold winter months. Maybe it was just some quiet time away from her babies nesting in the nearby trees. Or maybe she was was just taking some time to relax on a Sunday evening being thankful to spend another summer back in this little part of the world that she calls home. As I watched her, I thought how beautiful she was and how lucky I was that she had come back to spend another summer with me, which is a such a nice thing! ☀️ #bird #hummingbird #littleone #nature #garden #outdoorliving #maggiesinn #home #thesimplelife #kindessmatters #thesimplelife #gaspesie
Marilyn, our Business Office Manager, at Delaware Plaza located in Longview, WA, has worked for Koelsch Communities for the past 19 years. Marylin embodies the spirit of our company. Whether she is visiting with a family or helping a co-worker out, she does it all with a smile on her face.
Her car broke down last month, and coming to and from work became a challenge. Marilyn’s co-workers found out and reached out to Eva Arant, Vice President of the company.
Through Eva, Aaron Koelsch, President, and CEO, found out about Marilyn’s story and graciously offered to give her a van previously owned by the Koelsch family. The company’s generous gift brought tears to Marilyn and those who witnessed the incredible act of kindness.

I’ve been working from home for about two and half years now, and a lot has changed since I began. For example, I used to think the best part of the job was making an income 💶 while working around my kids and husband’s 👨👩👧👦schedules.
And although that is still a big bonus, I have found the best and most rewarding part about doing what I do, is helping people make healthier decisions by switching to safer, less harmful products 😍 How about you insta-fam? What is an unexpected joy in your work??? #socialcurator
Being their mom is my most favorite thing in the whole world. I’m doing this parent challenge (no yelling challenge) from my stake conference because I truly love these sweet kids of mine and I never want them to feel less than the beautiful, brave, confident, intelligent, hysterical, kind little humans that they are. Being a parent is hard - there are days (like today) where I just want to lose it. - and sometimes I do. So I’m excited to do this challenge next week and specifically focus on being more patient with my kids and using a softer, more gentle and loving voice. 💛 #commitwithbritt #momlife #kindessmatters #familylife
Today instead of our happy fun weekend faces we are mourning all the innocent lives lost during the cruel and heartbreaking victims of the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China (which starts today and by the end they will torture, kill and consume thousands of dogs) There are many different numbers reported, the first year was 10,000 to 15,000 dogs but some reports this year claiming up to 100,000 dogs and cats💔 if you have ever loved an animal please start to think about them all as sentient beings that deserve to live and be loved, we understand too much about animals now to keep our eyes closed. Please consider the choices you also make here at home, what do you put on your plate every night? We can all make a difference by being their voice, and choosing a different way. #stopyulinforever #stopyulin #animalsdeservebetter #veganforareason
Each season a portion of every box sold goes to support a new cause, charity or foundation.
A portion of the proceeds from our Summer Box will go towards helping Meagan's Walk. @meaganswalk
Raising hope and awareness about paediatric brain tumours and funds for research. Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer-related death in children and young people.
This year we were lucky enough to participate in the walk and took part in the Circle of Hope which was created by holding hands and forming a circle around @sickkidstoronto.
For more information please go to our website under who we support.
I love this!! Straight up, just be good to people because that matters. “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice” 🖤 #repost @leaderscreateleaders

Girl (or guy!), get yourself a notebook and write that shiiiii down! Where you going, how you getting there? You never know when something will spark your ambition or interest. Your notebook is your new cell phone. Nothing better than fresh pages and a boatload of dreams. 💭
This coaching side gig is fueling personal dreams for me. It’s not a job, it’s a passion. It could feed your soul too bc well,anyone can do it! Ask me how! 🤙🏻
DREAM! (And don’t forget to write it down).
After the film Avatar was released, there was an epidemic of people feeling depressed because they wanted to live more like the Na’vi tribe. .
It sounds a bit funny at first but when you think about it, some part of you might feel that way, too. 💜✨
It speaks to a deep part of ourselves that intuitively , instinctively knows that we are actually apart of nature not seperate from it. That we ARE all connected. ✨ quantum mechanics is starting to explain HOW this is true. .
We have just lost contact with the part of us that experiences this as our truth. .
There is a real need for people to start to, or continue to develop their spiritual aspect of themselves and their life 💜✨ whatever that means for you individually .
To name just a couple of reasons . .
✨It not only nourishes the well-being of a person on every single level, .
✨it makes one more sensitive to other people around you and your connection with them (loved ones and strangers alike) .
✨ it makes you more sensitive to the planet we live on & it’s needs (which is pretty urgent right now) .
✨ it develops compassion & kindness (which is desperately needed when you look at how the most vulnerable people are treated in our world) .
✨it helps us evolve to the next level as individuals, societies & a species (not just reflected in our technologies but in our HEARTS which is what we and the planet really need) .
✨ it more deeply orients us with what can I GIVE and less with what can I GET. More heart, less ego .
Without it, no matter what successes you accomplish in life, there can still remain a certain aggitation or emptiness that can’t be soothed with any material thing. .
What does your spiritual practice look like for you? And how much time do you dedicate to it? .

Out and about in LA today! If you find a card, we’d love to hear from you! 💗
All of us dog lovers out there can agree on one fundamental thing... dogs are amazing at love. Dogs love you regardless of your race, gender, sexual orientation, or your net worth. They love us even when we are at our worst and our best and every moment in between. If we open our minds and our hearts we can truly learn some of life’s deepest lessons from them. They don’t judge, they don’t discriminate, they just love! So let’s take one out of their book and honor an entire community that should have the freedom to love who they love free of hate, judgement, and discrimination. Because #loveislove
