My sponsor told me that when she takes her dogs for a walk (beautiful they are as well!) she often picks up dog poop left behind by less considerate owners. Isn’t that great!? She doesn’t get to tell them or anyone else, she is just kind because it is the right thing to do. I had it pointed out to me recently that I can be quite selfish. I am trying really hard not to be, and I am trying to think of what I can do to help others.
In my new found role of kindness Ninja I have taken to over paying for a ticket at a car park, and then leaving it on the machine for a stranger to use. Finding something like that would make my day, so I hope it has made someone else smile. I am working on some other ideas for kindness projects, and any inspiration would be welcomed.
The hardest bit for me if to be kind to myself. On bad days I can think unkind things, or manipulate people on purpose so they get angry with me- all of which is very negative. I’m going to focus on the positive, being kind to others is helping me to think of others before myself, something I need to get better at,
