I know, I’ve never heard of it either, but it’s a valuable reminder to be conscious of our choices and of our behaviors toward others.
So, here’s a CHALLENGE for all of us.
This weekend, catch yourself being kind and decent—and catch yourself being less than the best of who you are. Check in on Monday and let me know how you did. And I’ll let you know, too.
Moving through our days we interact with so many individuals, from store clerks to folks on the street to family and friends. Are we kind and decent to each one, regardless of who they are or what they look like or what they believe?
Kindness can be as simple as a smile—and as difficult as a smile when we are not accustomed to paying attention to how we move through our days.
How else might you move? Stow your road rage and bless the one cutting you off. Write a thank you note. Forgive someone. Offer compliments, not criticisms. Lend a helping hand. Speak gently, avoid harshness and negativity. Call or visit someone. And if they or their family is dealing with serious health issues, find specific supportive suggestions in my book, The Courage to Care: Being Fully Present with the Dying. www.thecouragetocare.com/mybook
We can choose to be beacons of light and hope each and every day, not only this weekend. The choice is ours.
