Day 20: Spread Love Like Jelly Challenge (Share the Movement and Celebrate Love)

Day 20: Spread Love Like Jelly Challenge

(Share the Movement and Celebrate Love)

After TWENTY days of challenging myself to #spreadlovelikejelly and working on reinforcing the ideas of love and kindness in my life, I realize that in doing so I have become happier as a result. There is something about doing an act of service or kindness for another person that just makes your own life infinitely better. I’ve reflected on a bunch of things lately and come to a few really important conclusions.

  • When I’m nicer, other people are nicer too. Love has some really amazing powers! That’s pretty great when days just roll along like conveyor belts of kindness, one right after another.
  • I’m happier when I focus on being loving toward my husband. We both laugh more, and fight so much less. When I am thinking of ways to make him happy I am, in turn, making myself happy.
  • All this love going around makes me kinder and more patient with my students.
  • Blogging about it every day allows me to be more reflective in all areas of my life. I really loved going back and reading some of my older blog posts about when I was serving with AmeriCorps to reflect on the ways that we spread love as a team.
  • It’s really fun to tell people you love them.

  1. It truly is amazing what a positive impact being kind to others can have on them. I’m so glad to hear that this experience has really helped you in your life 🙂

    • Thanks Cara- it was so fun to focus solely on kindness and love for a few weeks. Being aware of how I interact with others truly made a huge difference!

  2. What a cool idea! I do agree with you that when you are happy and you’re nice to people, they are infinitely nicer to you as well!

  3. I love your point about when you try to love on and make your husband happy, it makes you happy in return. I “know that” in my head, but I don’t do the greatest job implementing it. I tend to nag, which I HATE, but it is WAY better to share love and happiness in marriage!

    • I won’t lie, its not always easy, that’s for sure. He can be infuriating. But I make an effort to choose love instead of beating him senseless.

  4. Such a sweet positive idea! Love it!

  5. Really really awesome post and challenge! I too find that when I focus on loving my hubby and serving him, even if it means selflessness, we are much kinder and loving to each other. Love!
