all day, i have been mulling over a recent prompt from michelle's course and carrying it with me. my task was simple, to create a list. but i found myself coming back to the essence of my list throughout the day - trying to define what just kindness looked like, felt like to me.
ways to be kind
1. listen with an open heart
3. fill your own well
4. connect (or reconnect if need be) to those friendships that buoy your heart
5. reach out to others
many of these examples i have experienced lately and am ever so grateful for. the unexpected text from a faraway friend. the reaching out and inclusion from new friends here. it is all of these, seemingly 'little' gestures that one stitches together with gratitude to realize just how rich life really is. and sometimes during the hum of the busy that seems to be a soundtrack to our days, simply remembering the positive impact we have on one another can be quite profound.
may kindness find you today and everyday.
