What can we create for our children if we teach them that the most important thing to learn is to be kind - first to yourself and then to others? What would change on our planet?
Do you feel the difference between nice and being kind? Do you feel the 'should' and the 'expectations' attached to being nice? What about being kind? To me being kind has a softer energy. It feels more like the energy of love or gratitude. Kindness is not sugar-coated. Kindness does not hide the truth for fear of creating unpleasantness. Kindness comes with a dose of compassion that softens it - no matter what the message. Kindness is not always easy to receive because we are so accustomed to expecting 'nice'. It's those darn expectations that keep us stuck in the lies attached to 'nice'.
Will you allow yourself to receive kindness instead of 'nice'? Will you allow yourself to be kind to you?
You deserve all the love and compassion that is out there for you now.
