Week 16 -Kindness

Where to begin? This week has been full. Focusing on kindness has brought moments of joy and even a few opportunities to give more but it has also been a lot more challenging than I expected.

  My attention was required in other areas so heavily that it was all I could do to start my day with the intention to find kindness. It was a struggle to not be so self absorbed in what the day ahead had in store that I completely missed acts of kindness that I am certain were happening all around me. Hmmm, so what will I do differently? Two more days during which I plan to…. start again. 🙂 I am rejecting my old blueprint and the urge to wallow in negativity and going for a do-over. Kindness is everywhere, including within each of us.

  1. I, too, was at home all week, having been snowed in, and finally went out today. At first I almost forgot to look for acts of kindness, and then reminded myself and saw them everywhere. Several people in the grocery store actually paused for my husband and I to walk past them, kind of like when in traffic. HAHA! The store was very crowed. The cashier commented on what great shoppers we are, having purchased a full cart of healthy food for a great price, and I was smiling at everyone, and received smiles and greetings in return. So, it is and amazingly kind world after all!
