Living with Kindness Every Day, featuring Orly Wahba

Episode Summary

Educator and author Orly Wahba joins Derik Mills to discuss how practicing kindness every day can change your life and the lives of those around you. She describes how you can use the hardships you’ve endured to build yourself up and help others around you. She believes that hardships are a springboard to positivity, but if we first look inward to understand, and love, ourselves.

Episode Notes

Orly Wahba, educator, entrepreneur, and author of Kindness Boomerang: How to Save the World (and Yourself) Through 365 Daily Acts, believes that kindness is not something you practice once in a while, but instead kindness is a way of seeing the world. She’s a TED speaker whose projects include Dance for Kindness, Project Hope Exchange, and Life Vest Inside. 

In this episode of The Glo Podcast, Orly shares the story of how, when she was a girl in middle school, a fire in her family home left her family rootless and her father without a business. The lessons learned during that trying time became a foundation for her to understand why kindness is vital.
