BEHIND THE MOVEMENT
Hi! I'm Jacelyne and I'm so glad you're here.
If you've made your way to this about page, you're probably curious to get to know us. The funny part is, the feeling is mutual! I'm addicted to learning about people, their goals and their mission in this beautiful life.
I am obsessed with adventure, "Where the Wild Things Are", "Into the Wild" and the wild, in general. I love eating acai bowls, traveling, taking photos, documenting life through film and crafting until my hands hurt.
Ever since I was young, my mom (who started this Live Kind Movement with me) taught us the importance of giving back, volunteering and showing kindness to those who are typically ignored. Spreading good vibes and adding value to the lives of everyone we meet has always been the top priority.
My hope is that you are inspired by Live Kind's mission to make the world better and to rid yourself of the fear of being different in a world that tells you to only look out for yourself.
Why Live Kind? Because one random act of kindness can change the world. From where I stand, the world is a beautiful place full of beautiful people doing beautiful things for fellow humans every minute of every day. So it doesn't sell as much as the not-so-great news fine but don't believe for a minute there aren't wonderful people out there living in alignment with their true purpose and from the default of being in the service of others.
As a self-proclaimed eternal optimist, life has proven to me over and over again that one act of kindness can make a world of difference to someone, to the point where it can alter the course of their lives in a positive way. The truth is that we've been led to believe that people are instinctually takers, and that's simply not true. We are all born givers and that's why it feels so much better to give that perfect gift than it ever will to receive it. That's why when we are out volunteering and in the service of others, we are receiving much more than we are putting out and the tipping of the feel-good scales will forever be in favor of giving. Generosity is not reserved exclusively for those financially able to give. Generosity and kindness are the great equalizer because regardless of race, ethnicity, geography or accessible resources, everyone has the ability to perform acts of kindness every day of their lives.
Having been blessed with an abundance of examples over the years to prove my point, I've come to realize that very often people simply need an invitation to give, to serve and to be that glimmer of hope to someone else because although it may seem to the rest of the world that it doesn't matter, kindness matters now more than ever.
Our hope with this movement is that we can bring people that invitation, that permission slip if you will that says in a world where kindness seems weird, let's be weird. I believe wholeheartedly that we can change the world one random act of kindness at a time. Not only is it a possibility but from where I stand, it is our duty.
