The Happy Book: May 14

Be Kind from Jamie Ridler on Vimeo.

I received an invitation from the sparklingly delightful blog Kind over Matter to be one of their Kind Kindred and to share something that inspired or was inspired by kindness. This video was the result. I hope it adds to your Happy this week!

But first... let's check in with where The Happy Book is this week:

Let's keep the Happy momentum going!

Let's share our happy:
  • Everyone's welcome to write a post about what made them happy this week and share it in the Mr. Linky below.
  • Come on by our Vimeo group to share a video of what makes you happy! It doesn't have to be perfect or edited or even have sound! Whatever makes you happy is just right. A moment of home video? Perfect. Your cat purring? Purrfect.
  • Or if photography's more your thing, catch a moment of happy and share it at our Flickr group called Share Your Happy. Come see what people are sharing! There's family and inspiration boards and rainbows and stars and pie!
  • And remember, you can absolutely get yourself your own copy to work through while waiting for the mail-around book to arrive!
What Made You Happy this week?


  1. Dear Jamie--thank you so much for the wonderful invitation. Just watching your beautiful slide show made me happy. You do so much to make this world both kinder and happier!

  2. Wow Jamie, your video is AMAZING! I love it! Thank you for reminding me to be kind. I am sore and raw and hurt today, good day to be gentle with myself.

  3. Late at night, ready for bed, but just had to say thank you so much for this slide show, a lovely bed-time reminder!

  4. Well, your video made me cry - but in a good way, so thank you.

    What is the music that you used? It is lovely and a wonderful background for the images and words.

    Thank you.

  5. I'm so glad you liked the video! Robinsunne, the music is from the Slumdog Millionaire Soundtrack (which is fabulous!) and the track is Latika's Theme.


Here's to sharing our mirth, acknowledging our bliss, dancing our glee and spreading some giggles! What made you happy this week?
