My favorite part of running a 30 Days of Inspiration project is stumbling upon inspiration in the most unexpected and random places. I can’t think of a better advocates for interjecting inspiration randomly into your life than The Kindness Rocks Project. In case you haven’t come across this project – let me fill you in. The project was created with two simple goals in mind:
GOAL #1: INSPIRE OTHERS THROUGH RANDOMLY PLACED ROCKS ALONG THE WAY…
GOAL #2: RECRUIT EVERY PERSON WHO STUMBLES UPON IT TO JOIN IN THE PURSUIT OF INSPIRING OTHERS THROUGH RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

This project began on the beaches of Cape Cod. The founder, Meghan Murphy, lost her parents at a young age.
During difficult or stressful moments in my life, I found myself looking for “signs” on my morning walk, such as a heart shaped rock or a piece of sea glass. I perceived this “sign” as a divine message or the random inspiration I needed to signify that things would be o.k.. – Th
These signs helped her get through difficult times so she started this project to pay it forward. Little did she know that it would soon become a movement – spreading internationally.
I first came across it in my hometown. The high school art teacher, enlisted her students to create hundreds of rocks and spread them around our community. Not only was this an amazing learning opportunity for the students but it brightened the day of unsuspecting community members who needed a little kindness in their life. Personally, my son came across them and thought they were the best thing ever. It also allowed a teachable moment as a parent!
I absolutely love everything about this movement and plan to have a rock painting party in the upcoming weeks. I would encourage you to do the same and pay it forward. Keep the kindness going and it will always come back to you!
You’ll never know where the universe will intervene and drop some inspiration in your path.
