Since starting my blog last year I’ve received invitations to many challenges and many generous awards. Some I’ve accepted, many I’ve let linger, not because I wasn’t appreciative or interested (far from it) but because my life has felt overwhelmed and I’ve simply chosen to follow my heart with this blog and do my own thing.
But this challenge feels right for me. I feel as though I’m evolving on some level. I sense a change, a shift in my life and direction and both these challenges seem to fit right in.
So for the next month not only am I going to try and be more mindful of each moment – to stay in the present and worry less – but I will also actively try and incorporate kindness.
To seek out opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others, helping someone who needs it, listening more attentively, reaching out, giving my time, paying it forward.
I’m also going to be kinder to myself. If I’m going to be a better person – the best wife, mother, sister and friend that I can be to others – I first have to be kind and look after myself. This past year’s been hard. And I’ve neglected myself. I’m hoping that will change
I hope that some of you might join me on this challenge. There can never be too much kindness in this world. Let’s start a ripple effect and see what it leads. Head on over to Niki’s beautiful blog, The Richness of a Simple Life and find out more about the challenge.
Peace, love and light to you all. Here’s to a kinder month ahead. May we all inject a bit more kindness into this world so that some of the gray clouds might disappear.
