Empowering self through kindness

“The true hero is one who conquers his own anger and hatred.” - Dalai Lama

Kindness is a topic that I gush about. Maybe it is because it comes so naturally to the “people pleaser” tendencies that I have. But whatever the reasons why I gravitate towards kindness are, the benefits to my wellbeing and my life have been tremendous. Loving others and acting within kindness, to me is like treating myself to a dose of warm connected love. 

When I am kind to another, when I offer kindness, or when I reflect love at another it is me who benefits so greatly. I feel the warmth and connection between me and whomever I am interacting with. I feel the kindness, I feel the love. It makes me even happier to see that they can feel what I do.  

So when I am down. When I feel like life has lost a little of its flavor. I offer more. I find any excuse to offer from within something I find valuable to another. Whether it be my time, or my effort, I offer it with an open heart, because it is in my offering that I ignite within me all the wonderful and beautiful feelings that I love so much. It is who I know I am. 

So look how I get to feel all the time! The more I offer the more I feel wonderfully connected to others and myself. This life’s true blessings come not from what we receive but from what we offer. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are each one of you.
