However you choose to follow i greatly appreciate it. 🙂
On to the announcement now.
So as I was saying… I’m joining the Revolution. Which revolution? The Kindness Revolution and I am inviting you to join along with me. Basically, it’s a challenge started by Niki at The Richness of a Simple Life designed to help you focus on bringing more kindness into your life. And I think we can agree that we could all use some more kindness in our lives, don’t you think? The challenge lasts 7 weeks and each week represents a different kindness “segment”.
Week 1: Self-kindness
Week 2: Observe Kindness
Week 3: Kind Energy
Week 4: Be Kind
Week 5: Grateful for Kindness
Week 6: Kind Inspiration
Week 7: Secret Kindness
Each segment is comprised of exercises designed to help you focus on kindness and invite more of it into your life. With everything that we have to do on a daily basis -study, work, family, responsibilities, the list goes on- we sometimes forget to be kind to ourselves and others. We’ve become alienated by our routines and seem to just exist rather than live.
It’s no coincidence that so many ancient philosophies stress the importance of being kind to yourself and others as the path to finding true happiness. I know that in our day it’s easy to loose sight of what’s really important in life, but we should always try to stay grounded and focused nonetheless and being mindful of our kind acts is a great way to start.
I will begin today on Week 1, which focuses on self-love. I will be keeping a journal of my progress and trying to go through as many exercises as I can and at the end of the week – probably next Friday- I will report back on my thoughts, how the exercise went, what changes I observed, how hard or easy it was and so on.
If you are interested in joining let me know and perhaps we can go through it together and help motivate each other if we hit a slump. The only thing you have to do to sign up is leave a comment expressing your intention to join the Kindness Revolution here. If you know anyone else who might also be interested please point them towards that direction. Let us all join the Revolution together.
