“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” –Jane Goodall
I love this quote by Jane Goodall, as it reminds us that kindness is a choice, and not always an easy one. Don’t be afraid to take the high road and choose kindness, even in a difficult conversation. Perhaps when we’re with animals, we find it easier to choose kindness. However this can be hard to remember in the online culture, where people often hide behind their computers and make critical comments that they would never say to someone’s face. As members of the Animal Reiki Community I invite each of you to help me make a positive difference in the world by practicing kindness on social media.
World Animal Day, founded in 1931 to draw attention to endangered species, falls each year on October 4. To celebrate the day and bring awareness to the holiday, people worldwide were asked to post animal selfies on Twitter this past Sunday. You can check out the fun and inspiring pics here, at World Animal Day’s Twitter account.
