It's been quite a rough week and I haven't been thinking about the story at all, and don't really have any ideas. Actually, it was probably the last thing on my mind! For that reason, I won't be publishing a new chapter yet. Stay tuned though, as I'll be back at it again next week. This post will also likely be a bit on the shorter side - sorry about that!
Alright, now time for the post!
Today, I thought I'd talk to you all about kindness and how important it is in our lives. It can be very difficult to reach into our 'kindness reserves' to treat others with respect and happiness sometimes. After a long, hard day you might be just about ready to call it quits. Have hope, though! All is not lost!
Even when life seems to be dealing you nothing but bad cards (or violently throwing lemons at you!) there is always something good to be taken out of it. Even in the dark times, you'll manage to find a way out. Sometimes things need to get worse before they get better.
In the meanwhile, it can be tough to keep how you're feeling separate from how you treat others. When you're having a lousy day, it might be easy for you to be a downer, or maybe be mean to people. This is understandable - emotions can be tough to deal with. I encourage us all, however, to keep an attitude of loving kindness to the best of our abilities. Sure it can be tough! But in the end, the more kindness you radiate, the more kindness will return, and the happier you will become.
So let us move forward with kindness and positivity- this is what we all need in life and in friendships!
Here's our daily verse:
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." ~ Psalm 34:18
Even in tough times, we are watched and cared for! I can hardly think of anything more reassuring than that!
See you next week, and sorry about this being a short and non-AJ related post! I just needed to get this message out there!
Love you guys!
