“It’s kindness that will give you a powerful purpose. You won’t just make an entrance or impression; you will fill the room. Kindness is more than the golden rule; it is a superpower. And amazingly, it is within reach for every one of us.It’s time to change our perspective.” So I thought one day I would write a book about the transformative power of kindness and the way in which it strengthens and deepens your connection with others. The way in which is supercharges your abilities, your passions and your overall power and the way it gives others permission to walk in their own abilities, passions and power. This book has so many do the thoughts that was swirling around in my mind. She has connected them all, added to them, and very beautiful reminded readers that “Your hidden superpower- kindness - reveals the highest and best version of you.”
Happy August! My book recommendation for August is “The Awakened Woman” by Dr. Tererai Trent.
I am going to share a few words from Oprah’s forward: “If you’ve ever had a dream, a longing, a desire, but thought to yourself, “No way, I could never. I don’t have the time/money/resources/skills/ courage...” this book is for you. If you’ve ever looked at the world and felt an aching for one of its many hurts or injustices, this book is for you. If you know the power of sisterhood or need to know its power, this book is for you.” Happy reading my friends.
For July, my reading recommendation is Human(Kind) by Ashlee Eiland. It is a beautiful collection of essays about extending kindness that is woven together by powerful themes such as curiosity, humility, belonging, perspective, risk, loss and more. Through her essays, we join Eiland on a journey as she develops her own unique worth and voice "as a black woman living on two sides of the fence: as token black girl in majority - white spaces and as the "whitewashed" black girl in the majority-black spaces." She illustrates the power of extending kindness to others, regardless of race, social status, political views, or religious beliefs and how this not only gives us hope and but also rekindles our common humanity.
