Today I plan to commit at least 5 random acts of kindness. Whether that be holding the door for someone or giving a compliment to a stranger. Acts of kindness do not have to be big and extravagant. They don't have to be expensive or take a lot of time even. They can be simple, little acts.
I am also making a commitment to myself today. I woke feeling a bit run down and emotionally raw. So I vow to be gentle and kind to myself. I will treat myself with kindness and do something nice for myself.
I'm grateful for the peaceful darkness in the house this morning. I'm grateful to take time to do an extra long meditation this morning to rebalance my emotions and just allow myself to be. I'm grateful for my husband who recognized my needs and gave extra hugs and gentle attention. I'm grateful for this holiday to remind us to be the change. I'm grateful for the love I have to give, both to others and to myself.
What random acts of kindness can you do today? What is something nice you could do for a family member or friend? What is something nice you could do for yourself? These things don't have to be big or expensive, just a show of kindness or love.
May today offer plenty of opportunities to give kindness. May you find joy in this opportunity to give. Have a beautiful day!
