One of the hashtags I use is #bekindtoyoutoo. I’m reminded of a quote by the Dalai Lama: “Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible.”
Today, the action is simple… Find a way today to be kind to someone else, and find a way today to be kind to you too! And if you doubt the importance of turning this suggestion into action – think of the last time you benefitted from someone being unexpectedly kind to you.
In the midst of all the acts of kindness you have done this week motivated by compassion, care, or a desire to help others, take time today to offer that same level of compassion and care to yourself. I wonder what difference that will make to your day: I know it will make a difference to your personal resilience.
Affirmation: “I am building my personal resilience by focussing on kindness to others and to me.”
