Radical Simplicity and a Beautiful, Messy Life

8 Small Things Nearly Everybody Needs to Hear More Often.

Aqua Wood Heart

1. I love you.  You matter to me.

2. Come.  You are invited.  Let's meet for coffee.  Join me.

3. I'm here for you.  Let me help with that.  Let's do this together.

4. You are not alone.

5. This is for you.  Here, take mine. Make yourself at home.

6. You're doing a great job.  That thing you secretly fear you are screwing up? You're really doing great.

7. I 'm proud of you.  Here is what I admire about you. You inspire me.

8. There is hope.  For whatever you are struggling through right now, big or small, there is hope.

Can I dare you to say each one of these to someone who needs them today?

Will you take a moment to follow me on facebooktwitter, or instagram? And thank you for reading my words, I'm honoured.


  1. I love you, and you, Darling Kelly, are doing a great job!

  2. Kelly, you are doing a great job ! You are not alone ! WE are proud of you ! WE are here for you !

  3. You inspire me to be a better person, to imagine other people complexly and to stand up for those who might not be in a place to do so for themselves.
