#RISE ** This month’s RISE spotlight features Michelle Corkins, Deputy EVP of KAFP. “I’m a firm believer in the power of kindness. Every single day I set out to pump more kindness out into our world. Compliment a stranger, hold the door open for someone else, use the name of waitress/mechanic/salesperson in our interaction, say ‘thank you’ a gazillion times a day…… little stuff like that. I may be having a crummy day, but being kind to someone else is an instant mood boost! I like to say ‘kindness is contagious,’ and it’s the truth.
In 2012 I started a new family tradition called Random Acts of Kindness; my family spends Christmas Eve out in our community doing random acts of kindness for others! It’s our way of bringing balance into the holiday craze that can easily take over.
I stay well, find my balance, and feel my purpose by flooding the world with kindness.”
