Fritz Says It Is Time to Be Kind!!!
We jump started the Fritz Movement one week ago to challenge singles ( and at this point challenge anyone) to BE REAL/ NO B.S. for 30 days. Each challengee wears a green “F” silly bandz on their wrist to remind them to BE REAL and not pull any B.S. for 30 days… People love the idea and are jumping on the bandwagon. Our local jeweler, Hugo Rodriguez at Platella Jewelry athttp://www.kierlandcommons.com/Shopping/Details/154417 has the free “F” bands for folks ready to get their free Fritz “F” Band.
Tonight I watched an anchor, Jennifer Livingston withWKBT, address a BULLY, who wrote an email to her addressing her community responsibility to lose weight.Are you kidding me? Who in their right mind starts writing emails to an anchor and lambasts her on her responsibility to lose weight for her community? Does he have a screw loose in his head or did he test out with negative scores on the judgement richter scale? Or perhaps he just wants his 15 minutes of fame by being a JA?

In response to the email that deflated her entire being, Jennifer did the right and responsible thing to do: She addressed her assailant on air. She let him know a few facts. October is anti-bullying month… People should start being MORE KIND to one another. And parents need to teach their kids to be MORE KIND.
Kris’ thoughts: It is so much harder to be kind than to be critical. What is happening to our society? When did we think our way was better than everyone elses’ ?
So, after thinking about our FRITZ Movement and Jennifer’s Challenge for People to be more KIND. I thought back to the dating pond. Heck, I even thought to those that are in relationships… Why not PRACTICE being kind RIGHT NOW!
So when you wake up tomorrow, try practicing these KINDNESSES:
When you see someone- SEE THEIR Beauty. Every man and every woman possesses some great beautiful feature. Is it their smile? Their eyes? Great, long hair? Long legs? Wonderful skin? Once you SEE their beauty, COMMENT on their beauty. That means opening up your mouth and sincerely speaking a compliment on what you have observed. The example would be, “ God, your skin is absolutely glowing.” Or , “I love your smile. It warms up a room.”
When you start picking out another persons’ flaws- STOP. If you even think to tell someone how they need to do something better or improve their appearance- STOP. Instead, focus on the beauty you discovered from bullet point one. Go ONE DAY without being hyper-critical.
Be Kind to yourself. Take off the bi-focals and just notice your best trait today. No more self deflated language for this day. Instead today is the day where you praise yourself for what you know is beautiful. Your self talk could roll of your tongue like this: “ I am charming and enchanting” OR “ I am whole, strong, harmonious, and happy”. Writing in the present tense and stating that you own your praise will only lift you higher.
If YOU HAVE CHILDREN… Please be careful what you say in front of them. I remember I was in the car with some parents and their kids were in the back seat. One parent noticed an overweight person on a bike and said out loud, “God, look at that orca on the bike.” So, now the kids have heard their parent calling the overweight person, Orca… One can only imagine the kid goes to school the next week and probably calls some overweight kid, Orca… Parents do not realize how they are role models to their children. Imagine what it would be like if a parent said, “ Wow, that person on that bike is out riding in 110 degree weather. Good for them.” Now that would be better choice.
The time is now to be more KIND. We need kindness. We need REAL PEOPLE. We need no B.S.
Imagine the dating pond with More Kindness, REALNESS, and NO B.S. Now that would be amazing. And you know, more people might just connect.
