[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Be Kind

Above all else, please, be kind - Ijeoma

What a wonderful few days I have had. Kindness never goes out of style it
really is a form of intelligence Kindness allows you to set boundaries Kindness allows you to be gracious Kindness allows you to let go Kindness allows you to see things from a different perspective Kindness never goes out of style

As I navigated my way into a place which was unfamiliar to me this weekend,
totally out of my comfort zone, no electricity and all the material
comforts that we take for granted, I was taken in by a kind family into
their beautiful space overlooking the ocean. They never met me before but
cooked all my favourite dishes and just was so kind, it brought me to a
space of remembrance- to be kind in my approach I may not have to agree or
share the same point of view or believe in the same approach but I can be
kind, it costs me nothing. Being kind comes from a place of self love. Kindness - the quality of being considerate and courteous - that comes from
within and from practice. Its how you deliver it, people may take your
kindness and interpret it in many different ways But that's not your business It really isn't “Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but
manifestations of strength and resolution.” ― Kahlil Gibran

Peace
