‘Tis the season, folks. November symbolizes the return of embracing warmth, creating it. With fall surrounding us, it is finally time to break out those couch blankets and scarves. I have to be honest and admit to loving this season for its coziness a bit more than anything else. Bundling up (aside from the literal creation of warmth) has always symbolized an abundance of security and coziness. Fall is the time to celebrate the abundance with literal layers, if you will.

I was utterly transfixed the first time I stumbled upon Sameheart Designs. Nadia Sameheart designs gorgeous all natural fiber creations with a simplicity that belies the absolute skill such a craft entails. From scarves to blankets, each piece is handcrafted with a discerning eye and a lot of love. These are the pieces you nurture, take care of, pass down. This Neon Highlighter Skinny Scarf is a personal favorite. And this Baby Blanket? Beauty, abundant.

Sameheart Designs is giving away one $40 gift certificate (to be used toward a blanket or scarf only) to the shop to one lucky winner.  To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, November 14th. Also, all of our readers can get a 10% discount through November 22 by putting in the code BRIGHTSIDE upon checkout!

    I practice random acts of kindness quite often. The other day I bought my colleague a large peanut butter cookie from a coffee shop that I had stopped at because I know how much she likes pb cookies. I also bake goodies for my colleagues as well.

    I have a sunday school class of kids 1 to 2. some of them are happy and play, some stand and cry for the whole time. some have a runny nose and others want to push kids off every toy. some of these kids are so lovable and others I have to try a little harder to be outgoing and kind to. This is one place I have to consistantly push my self to practice those random acts!

    I just adore kind and loving people as they truly inspire me, even with the smallest acts of random kindness and I also try to be kind to others! yesterday afternoon I made a way for an elderly woman to get into a congested traffic lane to a speed way ( toll way-where you have to get a ticket) after seeing so many people being angry and honking at her trying to marge!!… it only takes a second, or two!! but make a difference- let’s spread kindness to others no matter how small it is!

    Just today at the grocery store, I saw a mom struggling with her stroller, I just held the door open for her. Nothing big, but her smile and thank you made me feel good.

    I was in one shopping center waitting for my husband.I waited so much that I had to buy one sandwich…a good one with shrimps, lettuce, tomato, corn…hummmmm…then I saw a old woman counting some coins and it seemed to me that she gave up of buying some food…I gave her my sandwich discretely, and she gave me the biggest and lovely smile 🙂  This happened yesterday 🙂 It bright one cold and dark rainy day!More for me than for her! Maybe the  random act of kindness was from her :))))))

    I do a lot of things all the time without really acknowledging them as “Random Acts of Kindness”… I just do them- not wanting to blow my own horn lol.

    I think the last thing I remember doing was sending a Happy Birthday card (with $5 in it and a scratchie for mum) to a wee girl here in NZ who’s in Starship Hospital. Her name is Eva Mitchell and she’s been there since she was born- it’s a long painful story but she is beautiful and a lot of us sent $5 as a “Hi 5 for Eva” gift and she could do her shopping online, for her presents, as she can’t go shopping herself.

    Wee honey she is 🙂

    OK I thought about this quite a bit and my mind just blanked. I don’t think it’s because I don’t do nice things, I just don’t log them in my head. SO….I asked my “Soul Friend”. Here is what she said: I think that’s one of the reason’s I love you so much… you are very kind & thoughtful… for me it was when you,
    out of the blue, offered to hang out with me & just listen to me, when you knew I really needed to talk…& I wasn’t going to ask… that meant sooooo much to
    me.. still does…

    I guess it’s the little things that touch others lives 🙂 This is a great question! Made me really think!

    Last week a man at the grocery store dropped his health insurance card and didn’t notice. I left my place in line, with baby on hip, and ran out to find him in the parking lot.

    I try to do a little something extra every day that I see other people! Sometimes its not every day. However now that I am a sub for a local school system, I am spending time around a lot more children. They look at the adults for help and to solve their problems, and I can tell some of these kids really look up to us. I love to spend time with the kindergartners and first graders, they are the nicest and most dependent on us. Such lovely manners, I always try to reinforce that and just a few comments about their “pretty coats” or “what a lovely name”, really go a long way!

    I have a newborn at home and really haven’t been out of the house for over a month… But we finally made a trip to the store on Sunday and we just walked up and down the aisles. I feel like just smiling at people shows kindness and can be contagious! Smiling at someone is a great act of kindness that we need to do more often!

    I’m an avid bookworm and get most of my books from the library… I like to leave inspiring or uplifting quotes written on post-its in the books so that hopefully the next person who checks it out will see it.

    I had several bags of baby clothes saved up to resell…once Sandy hit there were so many families in need, I saw a post from a Mom in my neighborhood that was making a trip to Coney Island to drop off donations, so I got the bags together and gave them to her to donate

    We have a neighbor who was in need of new set of tires..so we went and pre paid for a new set..and left an unsigned  note on his car saying that we noticed the tires were worn… and that there is a set paid and waiting for him and we gave him the person to ask for at the tire store..All that is asked in return was that he pay it forward at some point….

    A few days ago while grocery shopping I helped a struggling elderly woman with her groceries. And yesterday I gave some change to a man in need. But those seem like too small things. I should be more deliberate with my good deeds. Nadia is a great example of someone who does this!

    Denise says:

    I don’t. Because I’d like to think that my acts of kindness is never random but planned and intentional. I consciously try to integrate genuine kindness into my daily life. Smiling in the midst of frustrating situations, being objective and open in an argument. I honestly think that being kind (especially in situations or around people who make it difficult to be kind) is a challenge to say the least. But to rise above that and consciously make the decision to be kind in return..genuine kindness… that’s what I strive for everyday.

    I’m currently running a campaign to make women on our campus more aware of their reproductive rights and the vast array of contraceptive options, and according to many who have learned something that’s pretty kind 🙂
