"Kindness" - the word itself has a lovely feel, a sense of both gentleness and strength. We are often told to be kind to others which is wonderful advice. There is a bumper sticker "Human Kind. Be Both". Yes.
How are we at being kind to ourselves? Not self-indulgent, but kind! Take note of the tone-of-voice you use for your internal self-talk. Do you ever call yourself unkind names? Make unrealistic demands? Ignore body signals of hunger or weariness for too long? If you do, notice these things without judging yourself.
As a spiritual practice these next few weeks, notice your internal self-talk, move towards the gentleness and strength of kindness. Inner kindness will radiate to outer kindness. We are human beings, not machines. Be kind to yourself and the other humans in the world! Take some inspiration here.
