Kindness of spirit ~ comes from a genuine & sensitive place. Being kind may be perceived as a weakness by others, but the way in which we treat, regard, consider and speak to others, is one of our strongest influences. I believe there is no greater quality ~ than the act of kindness. Being kind creates a true sense of happiness and satisfaction.
Share your kindness. Just a small act of kindness can impact our world. Our actions shape the way we are living. Different actions create different results; acts of anger and aggression will bring hatred and fighting, acts of genuine kindness will evoke love and compassion.
Performing acts of kindness encourages others to be kind, producing a ripple effect ~ a circle of kindness. Kindness can spread. Be kind.

My daughter invested much of her time last weekend writing a speech to present to her school in an application for junior school captain 2016. We chatted together about leadership and what strengths she could offer the school in this leadership role. She contemplated writing with humour and tossed around different ideas that could attract potential votes. She showed me this final draft and said, ‘Mamma, you teach us to live from our heart, so I wrote this from my heart. The younger kids may think its boring and it’s not funny or flashy, but its who I am’. I can’t tell you how proud I am of this 11 year old who has taken to her stage this morning with kindness and compassion. No matter what the outcome, in my eyes she’s a leader in making a world change in her community.

HI, if you don’t already know me, I’m Sienna. I’m here today to let you know why I would make a GREAT CHOICE for your junior school captain 2016.
This term, we’ve been studying the qualities of good leaders. We each researched leaders of our choice and their qualities and presented it to our class. Two of my leaders that really stood out to me, were Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi. Mother Teresa devoted her entire life to helping the poor, homeless and sick. Mahatma Gandhi led India to independence through peace. Both of these leaders were very HUMBLE, KIND, COMPASSIONATE, and everything they did was for the best of their people.
In our current world, there is much hatred, religious warfare, prejudice and fighting. During these times, I believe WE CAN learn a lot from the great leaders; Ghandi, Mother Teresa & Nelson Mandela and bring PEACE.
If I were your school captain, I would lead with FAIRNESS, KINDNESS, COMPASSION and consider everyone. I will listen to each student, teacher, and even the smallest voice will be heard. In my leadership role I would hope to create happiness and harmony in the school community. By setting a good example in our school we can start to make the change the entire world needs. Imagine what 7 BILLION people could achieve if we all respected each other and showed kindness? The world can be changed by our example. Let me part of that change. Vote for FAIRNESS, vote for KINDNESS. Vote for me.
