I'm starting a kindness campaign. It might take a minute for that to happen, so please be patient. People filter into Meetup groups rather slowly these days, and before you know it, the holidays will be upon us.
I think it will be a really fun campaign. First I have to finish handling my own bullying mess. It's been a terrible experience, BUT, I has made me so passionate about this campaign!! And it has given me so much life wisdom.
Here's how it came about. For the past year, some people have been bullying me. It started last November. By January, I couldn't breathe. I’m an artist, and my solace, when my bullies came at me, was to create something beautiful. It took me beyond their destructive efforts. This campaign invites people to be artists in their own life. I designed an image to help with that -- a heart, delicate and fragile with color, and, as it fills with kindness, the poison drips out.
I thought, how beautiful it would be if people took these little hearts -- mine or one they draw themselves -- and gave it to a stranger. Maybe they could even film it, post it on youtube, or take a selfie with the person. I would love to see a class of children have the making and giving of a heart as an assignment. I would love for masses of people experience this tiny moment of joy. Any time you get to look into someone’s eyes and share a smile, a tiny piece of life’s burden dissolves.
