Kindness - "Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible."

How will you be kind to yourself today?  Without guilt and anxiety telling us we should be doing something else, that we don't have time for ourselves, we don't deserve it.  We can often find it easier to be kind to others and ignore ourselves.  What would it be like just taking a moment?  For some this can be through meditation or spiritual practice or for others just drinking a cup of tea and sitting in the garden listening to the birds.  Whatever it is I hope you can find a moment today to be kind to yourself too. 

How will you be kind to yourself today?

  1. Loved that quote from Dalai Lama! I also believe, that we must be kind to others always, for we do not know what battles they might be fighting!
    And yes, it is important to be kind to ourselves too. Like they say, Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.♥

  2. I agree. We must be kind to others always, and consider what is going on for them too, even when this sometimes isn't easy. It is a lovely quote isn't it? There is always an opportunity and a chance to be kind - to ourselves and others. Thanks for your comments :-)

    1. You are very welcome. Indeed so little effort needed when you think about it. It's important to make it a bit more of our conscious behaviour I think - both to ourselves and others.

  4. A lovely post thank you and a reminder that it is easier to be kind to others and we neglect kindness to self.

  6. I am being kind by being up at 1am anticipating a writing marathon. Sounds like a silly thing to do but I am very much looking forward to it. The marathon starts at 9am in the states but here it is the wee small hours. I have a cup of tea and a ginger biscuit and I had several hours nap leading up to it.
