I love what the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood does for their children. Unlike other cities, that bus children to various elementary, middle, and high schools, Lakewood has created a bus-less system for their 5,800 students.
Their morning walking commute fosters a sense of community and provides an opportunity to get both fresh air and exercise before settling in for a day of learning.
Unlike the Lakewood students, we don’t all live within two miles of our workplace, but seeing how their morning walk affects them serves an excellent reminder to get up, get moving, and get connected with the people around us.
Do you ever feel like you’re going from one place to the next, checking this off your list, but not really enjoying the moment?
Soul Pancake made this cute little video, showing what happened when pedestrians saw a “DANCE” signal instead of a “WALK” signal, to remind us to lighten up a bit and have more fun in our daily life. Why walk when you can dance?
The people at JacksGap asked their audience to send video messages via Skype answering the question “What do you love?”
After receiving over 2,500 responses from twenty different countries, they created this touching short video that reminds us there’s so much beauty in the world, so much that we can all appreciate, regardless of our differences. What do you love?
This little video put a huge smile on my face! It’s amazing what a little fun can do. It not only makes life more joyful; it helps us see each other for the light-filled beings we really are, underneath the guise of busyness and separation.
This is so many levels of beautiful and inspiring! Tim Harris has Down Syndrome, but that didn’t stop him from opening his own restaurant, Tim’s Place, which serves breakfast, lunch, and hugs.
Everyone who enters his Albuquerque establishment gets a big serving of his joy and love before they even take a look at the menu. Though the food may be delicious, I have a feeling this is what keeps them coming back: Tim’ infectious passion, gratitude, and kindness.
