Adulting: Small Kindness From Others...

Each day I live, it seems easier and easier to observe a world growing uglier.

The news is often terrible, there are plenty of reasons to fear, and it feels like global problems will never go away -


-as a result, I’ve cultivated such a deep appreciation for kindness.

For example, a colleague of mine buys a Turkish simit (sort of like a soft giant pretzel) everyday and has it cut up in small pieces. It sits in a little container outside his office on a hallway cabinet. The snack size bites are perfect treats, and I watch people grab pieces as they meander by.

I tell him it’s like he is feeding birds – alluding of course to me and his other colleagues.

It’s a small gesture he does every day, and I like to see it, and then remind myself that small things can have big, lasting results. And suddenly the world doesn’t seem so ugly.

Welcome to my blog on adulting! Being "older" is worth celebrating in an anxious world that tends to glorify "younger." I hope this site is a place you will find encouragement and positive words.
