Practicing kindness is all together different than observing kindness. This was an interesting discovery this week.
Every morning it was exciting to know that globally Kindness was being practiced and observed. Just the thought perpetuated smiling, which in turn caused more smiles, which then infected the day.
The first law in the Laws of Giving is, “Wherever I go, I bring a gift. I may bring a compliment, prayer, trinket, flower…but I promise I will give something to every person I encounter.” Weeks ago when I wrote the four Laws of Giving on a card and read it every morning, I did what I promised. Moving forward into this week of Kindness, I observed kindnesses performed by others. What was a wonderful “gift” was to observe myself. What had started weeks ago on a card was now a habit. Could I count that?
As I continue the MKMMA course, I continue to discover gifts like this. The new, real me is emerging and I really love The Gal in the Glass. The talons of the old Blue Print are attached deeper than I care to admit but the grip weakens as the person I am intended to be appears.
Masterminding daily has helped me to celebrate the positive forward motion.
Kindness – the gift that keeps on giving.
I can be the person I will to be.
I always keep my promises.
