We want to start this year off right by committing to a resolution that is sweet and simple. At Paper Source, we want to strive to make little changes to share love and kindness everyday. As a part of our #PSBeeKind Campaign, we believe that simple acts of kindness and a little bit of sweetness can go a long way!
As we reflect on our previous year’s resolution, we always tend to hold ourselves accountable to a high and sometimes unrealistic standard. We list all the things on our checklist we didn’t get around to doing. But, the #PSBeeKind campaign is about simple gestures that make a greater impact- We can show kindness through a handwritten thank you note to friends, calling mom to let her know she is being missed, or paying it forward at our favorite coffee shop. Simple acts like these don’t take a lot of effort but can make a big difference in someone else’s day while adding meaning to ours. Inspired by our Bee Kind Collection, we started writing down these commitments to kindness here at our Paper Source Headquarters in Chicago.
Here are some examples of what some of us at the Paper Source HQ in downtown Chicago pledged to:
“To be kinder to yourself. Acknowledge all the accomplishments you’ve done, however great or small. Love yourself for all that you are!”
“My resolution #PSBeeKind is to spend more time talking about the positives; less time talking about the negatives.”
Our stores across the country are also participating as part of this internal kindness campaign. We’re also inviting you to write down and post your commitment to kindness at your local Paper Source store.
