In preparation for the Kindness Challenge that is starting this week I have already thought of 5 things I can do to be kinder. When you’ll see the list, you’ll understand why it’s called a CHALLENGE :D.
Number UNO: Shut up. Yes, it’s a challenge to shut up and this time it will be a kindness challenge. Sometimes, in an argument, being quiet is the kind thing to do. 🙂
Number 2 (pun intended): Stop the gossip. Fuelling gossip doesn’t help anything and anyone, even if it feels oh, so good, to just dish the people you don’t like, because that’s the only thing you can do and maybe you think the gossip has some sort of effect on those people…like, they’ll feel bad about being gossiped, so they’ll stop pissing you off…they won’t.
Number 3. Stop feeding the judgemental thoughts. I know you guys are cool and you probably don’t have this problem, but I do. My problem is that I have the super power of easily spotting people’s flaws and my mind starts labelling everything. I figure if I stop the thoughts, I’ll stop the words too.
Number 4: Be grateful for 100 things. You get it.
Number 5: Make compliments. Notice beauty in any form and speak up.
