Today while I was at work I saw something on a nearby wall. It stood out as the wall was covered in lovely green moss. What I found was a stone or rock which had a message on it. I decided to check it out and had a closer inspection. To my surprise the message was ‘don’t worry, be happy, with a drawing of a head on it which had a happy face. It looked like a child had drawn this. I have to admit, a big smile immediately came across my face. What a lovely thing to find.
When I told my friend about it, she said she was jealous as she had always wanted to find a kindness rock. Up till that point I had never heard of them before.
The Kindness Rock Project started in America, I think, I may be wrong, and has spread to many countries since.

WHAT IS THE KINDNESS ROCKS PROJECT….
GOAL#1: inspire others
GOAL #2: recruit every person who stumbles upon it to join the pursuit of inspiring others through small acts of kindness!
The Kindness Rocks Project, a grassroots kindness movement based on the simple idea that “one message at just the right time can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life” Our project promotes random acts of kindness in communities including, but not limited to, painting inspirational kindness rocks for others.
The Kindness Rocks Project was created as a simple reminder that we are all connected as human beings and we share more similarities than differences at our core. Exhibiting kindness and support for one another through random acts of kindness can have a great impact. With increased awareness, Kindness can become a connecting force for good re-connecting individuals and communities at large.

Personally I think the idea of the stones is a lovely idea and for one, it brought a smile to my face. What do you think? Have you ever found one of these? Leave a comment below.
