Australian model Miranda Kerr has posted a positive message to her website, to encourage kindness and positivity in the year ahead. The model commented that she loves the beginning of a year because it's a time when people reflect and learn most from the lessons they've learnt over the past year:
"This time of year is one of my favourites, mostly because it's the season of goodwill and gratitude. It's a time to pause and reflect on the year that's been, celebrate hard work, acknowledge the lessons we've learnt, and thank all who've guided and supported us along the way."
Miranda hopes people will take the time to be kinder to each other in the year ahead, and she thinks it makes a big difference:
"As we head into 2015, I ask that we all continue to consider the impact we have on each other's lives, and how a simple act of kindness can transform another person's day. Encourage kindness in all that you do,"
