Keep At It is a personal effort to create and promote the joy and happiness that make our lives and everyone around us better. The goal is to challenge kindness within ourselves and pay it forward with the same gratitude and no-quit attitude from role models who continuously lift humanity up with their generosity and compassion.
Sometimes the things that we observe are big and obvious, and sometimes we go about our days surrounded by the subtle, little things—that when we slow down and reflect—allow us to see the world in a new light.
Like a sponge soaks up water, I soak up tiny golden nuggets of wisdom and life lessons from the people I meet and the things that are happening all around me. Having high standards is one of those pearls that I always hold safe. You have to set the bar high. Always.
I’m impressed by magnetism, intelligence, strength, work ethic, and adventurers. I also greatly admire people with fortitude, stick-to-it-ness, and focus. I aspire to imitate those who display grace and dignity naturally, and with ease. These are my Role Models of Kindness.
It’s okay to be different. To be unique. To be your own person. No need to follow a trend. No need to achieve greatness, but YES to doing your absolute best at whatever you’re doing. Kindness and sincerity are what attract me to my friends. Listening is my content. It wakes me up when I meet someone who is “that”. We’re in it together. Paying attention. Me to them. Them to me.
