Gorilla Goodness

gorilla goodness

What if? Just for today …

We all lovingly and intentionally connected with another being today, just for a moment?

A friend, a family member or even a stranger?

Do you remember the movement years ago called Gorilla Goodness, where people empowered themselves to go around committing Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty?

Well, let’s add…

Drive-by Loving.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Call someone and tell them how you appreciate them, without any other agenda.
  • Connect with a difficult relationship and propose that we start over and “Do it differently.”
  • Purposely look for someone to let in front of you in traffic and then wave them in.
  • Generously listen to someone, paying as close as you can to 100% attention, saying only, “Tell me more.”
  • Tell a friend or loved one, “I love you.”
  • Smile at a few strangers today and perhaps even say, “Hi.”
  • Look at yourself in the mirror today and really see you and connect to you. Tell yourself:  “Well done!” and give yourself a few reasons why while maintaining eye contact with your real self (not the critical one).

I would love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments below. 😉
