WHAT IS KINDSET?
/kīndset/ n. a collection of generous, compassionate, and loving attitudes held by someone
When the world feels wildly unkind, what is our role in making it a better place? What if we believed that our kindset - our collection of generous, compassionate, and loving attitudes - could help us lean into that struggle so we could boldly do our part to change the world? Would we rise to the challenge?
At kindset, we are committed to helping people find their most honest and kind voices by sharing the stories that make our world a better place. When we choose to observe and understand the beliefs that shape how others love, it allows us to see that very possibility in ourselves. Our attitudes have the capacity to grow and transform if we step into what makes us uncomfortable and with the fierce determination to make a difference. Kindness is contagious, but it only spreads when we are invested in each other’s journeys.
So what would the world look like if we harnessed the power of all our kindsets and chose to go into the world and do good together? Let’s risk it and find out.
We’re on a mission to grow kindsets and make the world a better place. These are our beliefs:
DO THE RIGHT THING.
Because it's kind and just and brave.
BIG STARTS SMALL.
Nothing happens overnight. Embrace every step with grace and patience.
FIND EXTRAORDINARY IN THE ORDINARY.
Stop to recognize the joy in everyday moments.
LET KIND RIPPLE.
Cheerfully and humbly give it away like there’s no tomorrow.

Wow - you’re here! If you’re reading this, you’ve decided to check out kindset. Thank you so much!!
I’m di (pronounced “Zee”), and I started kindset because I love sharing stories about compassion, love, and kindness. While it’s easy to spot the negative aspects that exist in our world right now, there are many positive things happening, too. These moments just aren't getting the airtime they deserve. I want to change that.
Everyday I hear, see, and am moved by inspiring moments all around me. And often, these moments are attached to some pretty incredible people. kindset will be a place where I introduce you to the folks who have shaped my life - past and present - through memories, interviews, quotes, and images. The more we shine a light on goodness - and those who spread it - the more opportunity we have to see that kindness really does make a difference in the world.
I’m excited to see how kindset evolves. I hope it becomes a place where you can learn, be challenged, grow, and most importantly, harness your kindset.
