I’m so serious. I know, your eyebrows probably raised up and you might have even laughed out loud. Or you may understand exactly where I’m coming from. Just hear me out. I’m telling you, the last week or so has elevated my whole understanding and concept of what kindness really is and it came from love.
I’m going to keep this pretty short and simple, but it’s powerful so let’s dive in. Many of us are kind and share goodness with those we connect with and encounter. However, I can admit, I have found myself limited in the kindness I extend to those who may have hurt me or that I’ve had negative experiences with. I’m never harsh if I can help it. However, I’m just being completely transparent, I know how to be nice nasty and keep it moving. LOL. I think most of us do.
I had an experience this past week that has changed everything and blown my whole mind. It showed me, I mean literally covered me in what real, compassionate love truly feels like. And born from that was a new understanding of just how much love influences kindness. So I pass this on to you dear one. If you want more kindness to flow into your life and you want to extend more kindness to others, start and end in love. So powerful, so soothing, so healing.
The way that I allowed this lesson to completely resonate for me was to internalize it. I first focused on loving me more. That love then extended to everyone else and by extension, it created the kindness that I wanted to share. That love allowed me to see how I could offer more kind and compassionate words, include more kind acts and deeds in my daily living and share more beautiful and kind energy to every person that I connect and interact with.
I send many loving and positive thoughts to you as you read this and may this quick little reminder be enough to touch your heart and send you even higher in your amazing journey of kindness.
