What if our only life purpose was to be kind?

What if our only life purpose was to be kind?

What if every decision we made was guided by this shared life purpose?

How would you change? How would the world change?


Life purpose is a way of living and giving. 

It does not require a title or a corner office.

Life purpose is a way of being in this world.

Today be kind. 💙

Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people.”

    1. Amen! Thank you for sharing! I meet so many people struggling with meeting impossible standards – and I find shifting their focus to something they can do every day for themselves and others. “Be kind.” helps them feel good about themselves once again. Simple & Profound. For us all. 🌎🦋

  1. “Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people.” Change begins with me and how will I hope to see change in others if it’s not real in me. So, I love your very pertinent theme and hope it inspires many to make the effort to be more aware of the plight of our fellow humans and through our empathy with them, bring about changes for the better in their lives.
    Well done and keep up your excellent work Dr. Andrea.

  2. This is a great concept and one I strive for, yet am not perfect in this. If only we all could be kind, the world would be so very different. Thank you for the reminder!

  3. Andrea, so good to read. It does change things, doesn’t it? I so do my best to be kind. I’m aware that this starts inside 😊 Thanks so much for the loving focus that you hold…. It is a gift in my life and that of your students! Good to reconnect and much love, Debbie

    1. Amen Dr. G! I think of life purpose as a guiding force for all we do. Reminding us of what’s important, no matter the circumstances. So important with tech overwhelm. Kindness just feels good. And so does simple. Winning combo! 🙂

  4. So simple yet so powerful! The world would be so much more pleasant to live in if everyone would make Kindness their life’s purpose. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing such inspirational post. It’s very nice to start the week with this positive mindset! I hope you have an excellent week ahead. 🙂

      1. Well said. Kindness…our life purpose. So true! Never thought of it that way. Imagine how much better this world would be if everyone chose to be kind!

    1. Thank you! Working with clients in transition prompted me to get creative about life purpose. Helping them focus on something bigger than themselves (and a job) gave them the motivation to rise up & keep going. One kindness at a time.

  5. I love it. I think it should be the litmus test for everything we do. If being a (fill in the blank) is moving you toward compassion and kind action for others, then it is moving you in the right direction. If you are becoming more rigid (sanctimonious, judging, angry) then it likely isn’t right.

  6. The ‘WHY’ is everything. Whenever I get exhausted, I close my eyes and ask myself, “Shubham, why did you start?” and it really makes to start again irrespective of failures I’ve had. Thanks for reminding my purpose again. I loved it. Live well.

  7. I love this! Whenever I’ve said to my mother how useless I feel, that I haven’t achieved anything, that I don’t have a career path etc she would say that I was a good person, that I shouldn’t feel guilty because I’ve never done anything to hurt anyone. You’re right, being a good person, being kind, is important, and it’s enough. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    1. You have one smart Mom! And I couldn’t agree more. I learned the same lesson from my Mom. Kindness to others (no matter who, no matter where) is the ultimate measure of success. For who are we without love. 💖
