I’ve written a lot about kindness towards others – thank a teacher, be polite on the road, leave a big tip, donate blood and the list goes on. Today I am going to keep it simple and encourage you to focus your kindness inward. Forgive yourself for yelling at your spouse or kids. Take care of your body – make a doctors appointment you’ve been putting off, go for a walk, or eat something healthy. Make a Top Ten list titled “Things I LOVE About Me” and keep it with you for days when you need a boost. Don’t over complicate it, just do it and acknowledge that you are doing it for YOU.
I love this advice from Fashion Thrill:
