Of all the roles women have to fill — be it at home, with their partners, at work, or at school — they forget what is most important: themselves. At times, they burn themselves just to be able to keep someone else warm.
Because of this, a new trend has been surfacing where ladies put engagement rings on their pinky fingers as a symbol of self-love. It also provides a little reminder that women deserve better, most especially when the going gets tough and self-love is overshadowed by self-sacrifice.

Why the pinky finger you ask? Placing a ring on this particular finger symbolizes that a woman pinky-promises to herself that she will never forget to treat herself a little better. In Japanese lore, to pinky swear originally indicated that the person who breaks the promise must cut off their pinky finger; in short, it is a promise to be taken seriously.
By wearing this symbol of self-love on our pinky finger, we promise ourselves that should we get lost in looking for love in the wrong places, we will calm down and remind ourselves that it starts from within — and that is a fact.
We need to realize and be reminded that we are complete on our own.
We do not need anyone to bring us flowers – we should, instead, plant our own garden.
It is a reminder to give yourself an extra dose of tender love and care.
Everything would go well if one would just first love themselves. It is one of the best investments. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
Self-love is the greatest empowerment. Knowing you do not have to rely on someone is a brightening feeling, for you do not need anyone else’s validity of your worth. However, this does not mean that you are to exclude others. The engagement ring can go hand in hand with another engagement ring and wedding ring on the ring finger.
“I am completely obsessed with this concept, a self love pinky ring!! As you know I am very happily married but it wasn’t always that way. I was married before and I can tell you that if I did not find self love I would not be the person I am today, the mother I am today, the wife I am today or have the marriage I have today.”
Choose yourself, always, all ways — even if someone else would not, even if no one else will not. Choose to love yourself.
A Woman Builds Little Street Pantry to Give Free Food & Goodies to the Needy
What act of kindness have you done today?
It started with Little Free Libraries, now it gave birth to Little Street Pantry, a small storage in the middle of the streets full of food and other goodies for the needy. Jessica Mcclard was fascinated with the idea of the free books scattered around the area and so, she came up with a concept of creating a small food cupboard in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
The Thrivent Financial supported Mcclard's project by giving her an initial $250 to build her very first free pantry near to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Fortunately, the project became a huge success. It now has thousands of fans on Facebook and has been an inspiration to many to do the same type of kindness in South Fayetteville and Ardmore, Oklahoma.

This Man Devoted His Life to Burying Aborted Babies And Rescuing Hundreds For 15 Years
He’s showing us all what the art of selflessness is all about.
Vietnamese building contractor Tong Phuoc Phuc became a miracle worker by accident. In 2001, he accompanied his wife to a hospital. While he waited for her, he noticed several pregnant women going to another room. When the women came out of the room, they were no longer pregnant. Yet, they were not carrying babies.
Tong was horrified when he realized that the women had undergone abortion. Still, he didn't judge these women. He knew they were driven by desperate circumstances.
However, Tong's heart broke for the aborted babies. So, he asked Vietnamese authorities to allow him to bury the aborted babies. Fortunately, they granted his selfless request....
