So this was the first week of the kindness challenge and I was hoping to have been able to have more time to be able to reflect in this as I was hoping to create a sketch around this week’s theme.
This week’s challenge can be found here:
Instead I’ve done some thinking.
It spoke a lot about improving our own self image to believe we’re worthy of loving ourselves. We have to do this so that we can then be ready to love and be kind to others. My thinking around this focused on what I beat myself up about and what kind of mantra I can have that can help me be kinder to myself.
I came up with this:
- Don’t worry (be happy)
- Don’t dwell on the past
- Always be myself
- Every cloud has a silver lining – find it.
- Screw what anyone else thinks
This list could have been shorter, but I wanted it to apply to me and maybe give a little inspiration to anyone else reading it. This thing about lists is they need to be short and sweet, or at my age I’ll never remember it 😛
So that’s this week done – I’m looking forward to week 2!
Be kind to yourselves!
