Hey, everyone! How’s it going? Have you kept up with being kind to others? I know it’s not the default setting for everyone to walk around with deepest concerns for every single person they encounter. That’s why each of us is moved by one thing at a time. Have you ever noticed a sudden interest in some cause or opportunity to make a change in someone’s life? Have you noticed that the urge doesn’t come up every single day? Well, when it’s your turn to step up to the plate, you’ll feel that idea pop up in your head.
Honor that calling.
A lot of my medical bills are paid for in large part because of people who, out of the kindness of their hearts, donated their own hard-earned money to help in my recovery. What does that sound like? I instantly think, “Wow, what a kind-hearted person. That’s love.” I’ve taken the time to consider why I want to continue bringing awareness to our openness and to intentionally being kind-hearted people; I realize it’s because I know that love heals and I believe the world just needs to be healed in order for the WORLD to grow and prosper. We don’t need to wait for the President of the United States to remind us to act in love toward our neighbors and to help each other when it looks like we’re having a hard day. We aren’t taught to be gentle after we graduate from pre-school, so I think it’s important to remind each other to be gentle now.
Here’s your challenge.
You may be going through your own struggle. That’s part of the journey, friends! Bring your attention to GRATITUDE and you’ll notice the shift in energy and perspective. While in that state of gratitude, notice if someone around you (in your day-to-day life) catches your attention and pay them a compliment and just put a smile on their face; maybe your mailman or even your daily barista. We need be open in order to express love in any way. If you feel your heart getting harder, fight it and open it up with a simple reminder of what you’re grateful for in your life. If you remember someone who helped you achieve what you’re grateful for, reach out to them and thank them. It takes a special character to recognize the value of others in one’s life. Take it a step further and swallow a little bit of your pride by letting that person know how important a role they played.in your development.
We all want to grow and in order to do that, we need to heal our wounds.
Peace, Love and Growth, Friends!
