about the movement
A Re-inspired Kindness Project-Focusing on Your Everyday Relationships. Challenging YOU to do 1 act of kindness for those people, EVERYDAY!
As humans, it’s in our nature to crave love, acknowledgment, and kindness. It’s all about the little things and we want to remind you to remind them that you care and give their heart a big smile daily! Here’s Your Reminder is here to help you remember to share those feelings by performing not-so-random-acts-of-kindness daily for the people that mean the most to you - your significant other, family, friends, co-workers – all the people you surround yourself with daily. Who says kindness has to be random?
Relationships are like a big, yummy bowl of your favorite ice cream. Eat it up and enjoy it the way it’s meant to be enjoyed, you’re happy. Ignore it, or give it little attention and what happens? It melts, gets messy, and is no longer enjoyable. Love, acknowledgment and kindness are just like that. They’re meant to be enjoyed, shared and given regularly. Apply these to your relationships daily and watch them reach their fullest potential. HYR will inspire and remind you to perform your not-so-random-acts-of-kindness and bring the focus back to your special people.
where the idea sparked
"From darkness comes light." Recently, I went into a pretty deep depression. For 6/7 months straight it was near impossible to get out of bed. I had no desire for anything, I felt abandoned, alone and worthless. My sweet pup, Penny, was the only reason I was able to keep my anxiety somewhat down. Poor thing got way too many cuddle requests, but she was always happy to oblige. Through this dark period, my self-run business started falling apart; I lost an unhealthy amount of weight in just a few months and allowed myself to think hopeless thoughts about myself. I can't tell you exactly what made me snap out of this, but I will tell you I had a great friend and a wonderful big sister who would reach out to me with a kind gesture or word, regardless of my melancholy and unresponsiveness. I remember how thankful I was for them, even if I was unable to show it. Looking back, I see how the depression wasted my time, heart & spirit, and I can still feel the scarring after-affects. So now, I want to use my newfound light and motivation to prevent these feelings of hopelessness and despair in anyone else. In this chaos of life, we all need a reminder to smile and know that we’re cared for. You know the saying "Be kind to everyone you meet because you never know what battles they may be facing", many times this applies to the people we are closest to, and sometimes they are often the ones that are forgotten. I know firsthand how a kind gesture or reminder that I’m loved can be the lifeline to help get me to hang on another day. Giving these reminders is easy; remembering to do it is hard. I’m hoping my newfound motivation will be yours!
