Hello Everyone! So, tomorrow will be a busy day for me so I am posting Mental Health Monday a day early! I hope you don't mind ♥ Yesterday was World Kindness Day and so that is what I'm going to talk about today; how you can be more kind and spread kindness because the world needs more of it! Also, at the end of this post - you'll see a way to earn 500 points on your animal of choice!

"The smallest act of Kindness is worth more than the greatest intention." -Kahlil Gibran . 

So, what is World Kindness Day, when did it start, and how can you participate? Per InspireKindness.com : 

World Kindness Day is a global day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. The purpose of this day, celebrated on November 13 of each year, is to help everyone understand that compassion for others is what binds us all together. This understanding has the power to bridge the gap between nations. 

Kindness can be as simple as offering up a compliment to someone random you see on the street! "Hey, you look really nice today!" or "Wow, I can tell you worked really hard on this project and you did a really great job!". Did you know that it has been proven that there is a psychological effect to giving someone a compliment?

https://www.insider.com/compliments-feelings-psychology-2019-1

There's also scientific proof that praise is an effective motivator. Compliments activate the reward centers in the brain, called the ventral striatum and the ventral medial prefrontal cortex. One study even found that receiving a compliment is just as thrilling to the brain as receiving cash — both are perceived by the striatum as "social rewards." 

Sadie Zinn via TedTalk speaking on the power of being Kind and how you should make it a habit : https://youtu.be/ir0B0pnfzY0

Our world, our lives, our friends, our families, even strangers - can benefit from even the smallest act of kindness. Large acts are great too! But, not everyone has the time/supplies available to do big things - and that is okay!! Small acts are just as important. 

So, to earn yourself 500 points on your animal of choice, I want you to share kindness. So, below in this thread, I want you to think of a player that you would like to share kindness with and then leave them a message (think of the compliment the person above you forum game thread). That’s it!
*Share your compliment by Monday the 22nd!*
(Multiple compliments are encouraged, but you will only be rewarded for 1 compliment.) 

I hope that this post inspires you this week! I hope it leads you to share more compliments this week or small acts of kindness. I hope it changes the way you think about things. And as always, my inbox is ALWAYS open. If you need a safe space to vent, check my previous posts for a link to my anonymous google form that lets you vent to your hearts content with no judgement.

Remember that you are loved, you are enough, and you are valued. You matter and you are important! And I am proud of you.

Calastia, you have gone through so much the last few years. But you are still hanging in there, doing your best everyday. And that's all anyone can ask. You're a great friend, and I love you. 

Prynne, you are amazing. I love everything about you. 

Shadow Fox, I think you're super nice. We haven't talked much, but I think you're awesome. 

Utakata, you seriously make the best graphics. I love what you can do so much. Your dedication is so amazing.

Seventhvamp, I think your style of art is so unique. I. Love. It. The graphics you did for me are so cute. It makes me smile everytime I see them!

Moorfine - So thankful to have you as a friend, You are so kind and caring and you are always there to help me out when I can't get on.  Thank you so much for taking care of my accounts when I go on my hiatuses.  And I love our partnerships together.


City - Thank you so much for taking care of my paints when I went on a hiatus, and even after I came back you were there to continue to train.  I also enjoy you checking in on me when we haven't talked in a few days!

*blush* thanks guys! I'll jump in here, in no order whatsoever...


 


Mako - You know I'm weak for your art work but you're also just a brilliant person to chat to and I was so appreciative of your support when I had to let Callie go.


City - Thank you for sharing all your advice, training hints and tips, for making me feel welcome in chat when I first returned to the game and for all the laughs since then.


Rosa - I've loved working with you so much, thoroughly enjoyed all the giggles, think you're just phenomenally creative and talented and can't wait to do another collab.


Saturnia - I love your energy; the depth of your empathy and desire to make the world a better place is evident in everything that you do. I also love your style!


Nad - Thanks for shouldering the TTT burden so often and for helping me out with all my training. Sorry for lumbering you with yet more horses!


Calastia - your first WoW orders really challenged me and pushed me so far out of my comfort zone, and I've learned so much and (hopefully!) improved so much through them, I'm so thankful to you for believing in me. You're also incredibly generous in a very quiet, humble way and that is a very rare and underappreciated quality.


Blitz - HP wouldn't be HP without you. Thank you for everything that you do, and for having patience and a sense of humour whenever I make stupid mistakes and come begging for help xD


Jaya - You work SO HARD on this game?! Like... I have no idea how you manage to organise everything and get it all done so efficiently but it is super impressive.


 


I could literally go on and on, the community on this game is so wonderful and every player has something special to bring to the table. I came back for the pixel ponies and nostalgia; but I stayed for the community.

This is wonderful but so hard to choose just one or even a few! xD
My little shoutout will go to Mango for her kindness in helping us all out with our layout woes and fixes over the years! Game changer for clubs with the new layout generator too!!
