We are getting close to the end of our thirty day Kindness Challenge- mixed feelings. I have enjoyed keeping myself in check and like I have said before, I tend to think of myself, in general to be a kind, loving person. But there are some days, Whoo! that you just don't want to be kind. You want to give in to your bad mood or tired mood and not deal with others. Today was like that. A long, long day. I was tired and worn out but in the back of my mind, I had to keep myself smiling and work a little harder to extend kindness especially to those who seemed like they made it their personal mission to test me!! So, I am glad that I had this challenge to remind me that no matter how you feel, the kindness of others should come before that.
And once I started putting that in practice, it really changed my mood. Suddenly, it wasn't about me and my mood, it was about seeing the other person smile. It's amazing how contagious smiles are. And thank goodness! I could have been trapped in that bad mood all day!!
Try it out today, give a little love, try a little kindness! It will change your whole outlook!!
