The Kindness Cure Has Arrived
Topic: Blog Tours

Happiness expert and author CJ Scarlet is starting a kindness revolution and she wants YOU to join her! Over the next year, CJ will personally perform 365 acts of kindness and recruit a legion of everyday people like YOU to perform similar acts in their own communities, such as babysitting for a busy mom so she can take a break, taking neighbors' trash cans off the street and leaving them an anonymous note, personally thanking our teachers and police officers, and buying a bus ticket for a stranded homeless person to return to their family. CJ's actions will be digitally recorded and made available on YouTube ( as well as her own online social network site (

CJ learned about the power of kindness the hard way. At the age of 12 she was sexually assaulted. Then as an adult she was diagnosed with Lupus and Scleroderma. When she was told her long-term disability had become life threatening, her world fell apart. Then a Tibetan lama commanded her to "stop feeling sorry for herself and focus on the happiness of others" and her life was transformed. The lama next ordered CJ to teach others the secrets to happiness that she had learned and the idea for the Kindness Cure Campaign was born.


CJ Scarlet, M.A., CCP, is an award-winning author, motivational speaker and certified life transitions coach. CJ has been named one of the "Happy 100" people on the planet, and is featured in the bestseller Happy for No Reason by Chicken Soup for the Soul author Marci Shimoff. CJ's new book, Neptune's Gift: Discovering Your Inner Ocean, is being heralded by mega author Jack Canfield as the "Jonathan Livingston Seagull for the new century." (
With seventeen years as an advocate for individuals facing tragedy and trauma, and a Humanities Master's Degree with an emphasis on Human Violence, CJ has a solid understanding of the myriad physical and emotional challenges people face and how they habitually-and often ineffectually-respond to them.)


CJ is the mother of three wonderful children, and resides in North Carolina with her devoted husband and two very spoiled Cocker Spaniels.


About Neptune's Gift:

When Dylan, an average wave of middling ability, realizes he is about to crash on the shore, he is terrified and miserable.  But when he encounters a magnificent wave named Serena, Dylan learns that he is a mere wave bobbing haplessly alone on the ocean surface, but One with every wave and every creature in the ocean.  In fact, Dylan learns that he is the Ocean itself. Abounding with thoughtful ideas for readers to consider and apply directly to their own lives, this fun and profound allegorical tale will leave you touched and inspired as you travel with Dylan on the greatest discovery of his life.

I love this idea!!! Almost makes me want to reactivate wings. Actually I need to find a group to take that over.

I'll see what little act I can do and will encourage others to do the same. I think I'll mention this at Toastmasters tomorrow.
