90 Days of Kindness Challenge :: Day Two

 

On 19 July 2010, I officially started the "90 Days of Kindness Challenge," hosted by Laura over at the wonderful blog, Along for the Ride.

I find myself joining this challenge, since I tend to look for what's wrong with the world, whether than what's right with it. 

I assess my personal life and think of ten things that are not going well, while simutaneously ignoring the ten things that are going fantasically awesome!!! (It takes a lot of energy out of me, I must say...)


My goal for this challenge is to actively recognize three things each day, no matter how small or trivial, that exude kindness.


How will I accomplish this goal?? Glad you asked!!!
  • Right here on my blog, I will recognize three kind things that I encounter each day.
  • These proofs of kindness could be anything, from a kind word I hear at home from my children or husband to something amazingly kind that I encounter on the blogosphere or web.  These kindness encounters could be a picture, word, or deed.

I am so excited about this challenge!! I am definitely looking forward to the benefits of opening my eyes to everything that is kind!!!


Mary Elizabeth's Day Two Kindness Encounters:
  1. My baby's smile - so innocent.  So perfect.  So genuine.
  2. Reading this blog post about "emergency hugs."  Definitely going to employ this one in our house!
  3. I am getting ready to extend myself a kindness by taking a nap after publishing this post.

I was so excited to read about you extending a kindness to yourself. I think we often forget about those things we do for ourselves. Every day I try to do a kind deed for myself by eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep. I used to see these kindnesses as the last things on the priority list. I've recently raised them to the top because I deserve them, and because I can be more outwardly kind when my own needs are met.
