1000 Mitzvahs. 1000 Acts of Kindness.


Sometimes the universe sends messages — repeatedly — just in case I didn’t hear it the first time.

First message: when looking for a document from some time ago, I came upon this quote that I had not read in a few years, attributed to Henri Frederic Amiel:

Life is short and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh be swift to love; make haste to be kind.

This is one of those messages that can seem merely a seasonal sentiment during this time of year. But, shouldn’t we think of this throughout the year? Be swift to love. Make haste to be kind. Gladden hearts. I think that is beautiful.

Second message: This morning I saw this on a friend’s Facebook page:

I encourage you to watch it before reading further. It should make you smile. Swiftly, with haste: love and kindness.

Third message: At Positively Positive blog, this post on the power of giving, which lead me to 1000 Mitzvahs. And this blog, too: Resolve to Give

Every.Single.Day. That can’t be too hard, can it?
