Living Through Kindness and Empathy by Kathleen Murray
What would happen if you chose to react to every situation with kindness and empathy? How different might you feel? How might it impact those around you, be it at home or your workplace? Kathleen Murray’s vision is simple: Bring more kindness into the world, one empathetic conversation and interaction at a time. As she shares defining moments of her life’s journey with you, she will ask you to reflect on how much of your happiness do you believe is determined by what happens to you, or how you react to it? Based on her extensive experience working with children as an educator and her twelve years and counting as a parent, Kathleen Murray offers strategies on how to guide challenging situations towards positive and proactive outcomes. There is always a solution to any perceived problem, and empathy and kindness are the most beautiful and constructive tools to finding said solution.
