I am sure many of you have already read this… I posted it on Instagram a few weeks ago. Buuuut I decided I didn’t LOVE the photo attached to the words and deleted it. However, I wanted the words to stay! They needed to be somewhere… out there in the vast space of information we call the internet. So here they are… on my blog. Let’s spread some kindness today.
You’ve got to have pretty tough skin to be in this world. In the social media world… Where we pour out our hearts, bear our souls, put ourselves out there, so vulnerable for all to see, for all to judge, praise, sympathize, ridicule or do whatever they want with it, really…
It’s a beautiful thing, this community that is so tight knit, but with that comes the inevitable jabs from people who peek in from their tiny little window into one’s life to make a snap judgement on something you’ve shared or said. And you’ve got to be tough. You’ve got to know it doesn’t mean much… You’ve got to be able to pick up and move on. You’ve got to love yourself enough to not let others make you feel less than the spectacular human you are.
Which brings me to this: be kind. Treat every woman like she is your sister, every man like he is your brother. Listen, love and respect. Open your windows, get a little wider view before casting anything negative. Nobody should be carrying around unnecessary negativity… the feeling that sits in the corner of our hearts, taking up space in the little universes we live in. Let go of it. Uplift, support and be kind. That will never be wrong.
