Kindness is contagious

Today Shawnee and I picked up her friend for dance competition. I can’t even explain how happy it makes me that she’s found such a kind and caring friend. We are so blessed to have such a kind hearted girl in our lives. Her family is pretty great too.

See my daughter like me, is pretty introverted. She suffers from social anxiety, and although the sweetest kid, finds it difficult to let others in. She used to commonly say how she didn’t have any friends. She had a few people she talked too, but they weren’t close.

Now this year at dance she connected with another girl and she’s a totally different person. The kindness this young woman has shown Shawnee has helped her grow. The two of them go to support their team even when they don’t dance, they help teach younger students and help with props. Their kindness (like many of the dancers there) shines.

Both girls turned 16 this week, just one day apart from eachother. Later this month we are having a small get together to celebrate. This will be the first time for my daughter in years. She’s never enjoyed having attention on her, and truely never felt close enough to others to have birthday parties.

This might seem so small or like normal teenage angst, but it really is life changing. Most of all their support and kindness to others is contagious. I for one am so happy to see so many amazing young girls and boys at one dance studio. These kids spread happiness all the time and I adore them.

The point to all this is to show that we never really know what another struggles with internally. A little kindness and caring can change a person’s life. Do your best to spread and accept kindness and live your best life.
