KINDNESS ROCKS

Check out this post featuring Megan Murphy author of The Kindness Rocks Journal

Megan Murphy thinks kindness rocks! She is the creator of the national movement, The Kindness Rocks Project™, which encourages people to leave rocks painted with inspiring messages along the path of life.

Inspired by this trailblazer, several Village resident heroes have created their own collection of kindness rocks and they are located in Village Park! Decorated with an array of colors and beautiful phrases including “Hope is the future of our world” and “Throw kindness like confetti,” the hope here is that one of these rocks will inspire and encourage you.

The words on the sign are meant to be taken literally. “Be kind. Take what you need. Share with one another.” I think now, more than ever, we need a spirit of sharing, selflessness, and community.

So come visit Village Park, check out these rocks, and engage your inner petrologist (that’s not the study of petrol)! Park hours are 8am – 8pm daily (2pm – 8pm when school is in session). Village Park is located at 384-388 1st St.

An Interactive Space to Work through Difficult Times and Create Inspiring Messages to Share with Others (Rocks for Painting, for Fans of Pebble for your Thoughts)

Now more than ever, people are longing for kindness and connection. During these uncertain times, daily news reports focus on disturbing events such as drug addiction, acts of terrorism, gun violence, airplane rage, senseless murders and political bickering. We are being bombarded daily with images that evoke a sense of fear and hostility. The Kindness Rocks Journal provides a positive counteraction to all this negativity. The tagline for The Kindness Rocks Project is “one message at just the right time can change your entire day, outlook, life.” Sometimes, all it takes is just one simple positive message or thought to change your perspective and that is what this journal aims to do.
