Ted’s Tip No. 202

Sometimes you just need to unplug, unwind, do nothing but look at the sky.

Living With Art

Art is such a personal thing. A piece might resonate with you yet do nothing for the next person. That is entirely ok, but I think that is what slows down or in some cases paralyzes a person from buying art. Connecting with a piece of art should be all about you. Or you and your partner/spouse. Take everyone else out of the equation. It will relieve a huge amount of the stress over purchasing a work of art. Then you open your mind to what truly stirs your soul.



 

 

Ted’s Tip No. 201

Today’s Ted’s Tip is a small compilation of acts of kindness that I asked for last week in honor of my 200th tip and in celebration of Style & Simplicity turning 5.

Visiting the elderly at their home, to cooking or baking for your neighbors and delivering the food as a surprise, to paying for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop or grocery store, holding the door open for someone, sitting with someone who is alone, or letting a car in at a busy intersection, to looking someone directly in the eye and using their name, or simply smiling. Just some of many, many thoughtful simple acts of kindness each day that were submitted. If you want to perk up your day look over the list on Instagram or FB or right here in the comments section. It will warm your heart and make your day. Cheers to daily acts of kindness!

I have drawn the 5 winners. Look for a message by way of the social media channel in which you posted your act of kindness with a message of YOU WON!

Ted’s Tip No. 200

On this the 5th anniversary of the release of my book Style & Simplicity, as well as the 200th ‘Ted’s Tip’ written every Monday on my daily blog post. I love how the two lined right up, falling on the same day! My tip today is super simple. Be kind. Show empathy. Treat people as you would like to be treated. It all comes down to loving one another.

In honor of the day I would love to give away 5 of my books along with some other Watson Kennedy treats. It will be 5 parcels filled with goodness. Leave a comment on what your favorite act of kindness is that you like to share. Next Monday I will combine all the names and draw the 5 winning folks. There is no limit to how many times you can enter. I want to be overwhelmed by the sharing of your acts of kindness. Much, much love to you all, Ted
