Often we find it easier to give kindness to others than to ourselves. This practice helps us appreciate this quality, our kindness.

Being kind
Thank you a Lyndi for another wonderful and thought provoking meditation. Why is it so hard to really see ourselves as we are and appreciate our gifts? Why is it so hard for me to accept praise from others and myself? These are things I need to work on.

I learned that I can simply be grateful for my breath. Back to the basics. I am grateful for my breath, that it happens without my thinking.

It felt good to focus on kindness. So often, in our busy lives, we forget that the simplest act of kindness may be especially meaningful to someone else.

I had forgotten
I had forgotten that the things I do and the way I spend most of my time is trying to be kind to others. I love being kind and seeing others smile. I had just forgotten that it’s not something I have to do, it’s what I want to do. And I forgot to appreciate that about myself, too.

This meditation is was a good carry over from yesterday for me. BE KIND. I bought a train ticket for a family member a couple months ago to visit over the holidays so he won’t be alone (a bucket list, too) he coming Saturday) anyways, anyways, another family member who doesn’t seem to visit him, who just complains, etc. is just a little upset now argued with me yesterday for no reason and made me feel less than. Now that time has come it’s not convenient, when that’s all I was trying to do in first place. I can’t win for losing. Just breathe, right? Have a great day, Everyone!

Being kind is my mantra. I was unkind this weekend because of alcohol. I regret it and want to apologize and take it back. The other person will not accept. It hurts.

Kindness is a cure for sadness
Reflecting on an act of kindness reminded me that although I may be struggling personally, I still have the ability to be kind and provide comfort to someone else who is struggling. It helps to dissipate or counterbalance the focus on my own struggles.

I need to take time to appreciate my kindness to others and good qualities about myself. I learned that being kind to someone brings forth good feelings. I also need to be kind to myself.

Awareness of being kind
The kindness that I bestow to others is as natural to me as breathing. For it is every moment of my life that I am kind to all that cross my path. I just learned that the kindness I bestow to myself feels like suffocating. I must work on the virtue of kindness, towards myself.

Unfortunately. I am stressed about some life changes so trying to focus on things that I do for others that are kind was not where my head wanted to go. This was challenging for me tonight.

You must be kind to yourself if you can expect to be able to pass that along to others.

I learned that it is important to reflect on yourself and the kindness that you bring into the world. Often times I am too hard on myself, so by reminding myself of the kind things I do for others, it helps me have more self confidence.

I learned that it’s very important that we give compliments to ourselves too. We’re too hard on ourselves a lot of the time and don’t give ourselves the credit we deserve.

Hate shopping, but...
There’s always folks at the grocery store or mall that I can offer a smile or compliment to. It’s nice to see the reaction on their face; sometimes surprise, sometimes gratefulness or happiness, sometimes even a little conversation! Makes me feel good. 😁

Kindness and it’s rewards.
Being kind toward others is a beneficial way of expressing love toward someone we may or may not know. May we never take kindness for granted.

Kindness is inherent

Being kind and compassionate is such an easy thing but day to day you realize how many times you could have smiled at someone new, offered a compliment, held a door, or started up a conversation with someone sitting alone

We all need kindness
It's hard to be kind to ourselves because we see all of our faults and flaws but it's important that we are kind to ourselves. We need to see ourselves through kind and compassionate eyes in a world that loves to demean, belittle us and tell us we can't do or get through the hard things. Kindness says it's ok if we don't succeed the first or fiftieth time as long as we continue to try and care.

I learned that having this Aura be the reminder during the day from time to time will keep me more mindful. I will set the paces in day time because I wish I can make the moment by moment consistently in mindfulness.

I have no right to treat me bad
Since this life, this body, this mind, this unique story and experiences, are not granted, but a gift. To celebrate myself is an act of gratitude, not arrogance. Being kind to myself is the only way to thank the existence for being alive.

Today I learned that I am very supportive and compassionate. I learned that I am a person who likes to see those around me that I care about feeling happy therefore I would like to provide support and compassion and just be kind to those I care about.

Just think about something you did in kindness and thoughtfulness. Remember how it felt. If I feel stressed or mad towards this person just think of all the good things they have done towards you. Focus on being kind and thoughtful.

I should think more about what I say and how I say it to help people when maybe all they need is an “ you have me” or “good morning” “i’m so sorry” or even just a smile or a hug.

Just caring for my own breath, my ability to breathe the air all around me; takes my mind to a very wholesome, humble feeling.. Taking my time to be grateful for Something so simple and so vital at the same time. something I don’t even have to Be conscious of. an amazing automatic function.. I don’t know maybe I just never felt that kind of kindness Within myself towards my own natural human instincts.

Kindness is the best quality.
I need to keep in the front of my mind that caring for others is the best quality to have. Looking after a stranger in need recently made me remember the times when strangers have been good to me. If it wasn’t for this kind of generosity, the world would be a scary place. Give if you can.

Shame and guilt is not who I am
I woke up uneasy this am. Needed to be recenter, feeling my energy shift thinking about a certain situation I just ended. Constantly wrecking my brain about if I made the right decision but when I think about the person and the decision I feel off, I feel unclean, Uncentered and off balanced. Which I feel like if that’s how I feel thinking about it, if I stayed I feel like things would be darker. Depression knocks on the door very close to me and so does guilt and shame. I needed these affirmations this am and feel better about who I am, not allowing others judgement drive away the positive lights in me.

Words needed first towards me. Showing happiness to those in need of it I realise is more important than any material help.

Be kind
The world can be really cruel sometimes. One thing we have to remember is that people’s negative perception of you, is sometimes a reflection of themselves. So it’s up to us not to take it personal in feeling as if we don’t deserve kindness and love. Instead of looking for it outside, we have to find it with in ourselves.

...of the kind things I do. There are so many yet I don’t give myself credit for them.

Realiziations
I realized how selfish id been. I havent done anything that i wont be benefiting from in the past few days. Id been too careful, i havent given anything to anyone without thinking if i wouldnt get hurt in the process of doing so. I had kept to myself all these times only doing what i am supposed to be doing i feel like i am dead inside because that way i wouldnt get hurt i think its going to take more time from me to be able to realt open up to people again and let myself feel vulnerable again. But im thankful that i realized this perhaps id be more conscious of doing good and extending a little help to anyone.

I have been kind to many people in so many ways. I have found, however, that being accepting of people and being kind in giving them chances to show who they really are can be the best way to show kindness.

I was reminded that I am a compassionate person. That through the daily grind of life, there were moments of kindness, compassion and service done by me and also done to me. Feeling blessed and appreciated at the same time.

Kindness
When I have shown true kindness to others, I have felt strong and stable. It gives me a sense of power (in a positive way) to know that I can be the reason someone is able to smile. I always want to be that for others. But sometimes I forget that other people can show that same kindness to me, without me needing to ask or reciprocate. I need to be more open to not just giving kindness, but also receiving it. I don’t need to be the strongest person all the time. I can rely on the people I love to help hold me up if I need it.

kindness and simple things
I used to think ambition and achievements were all that really mattered that learning a valuable skill and making money were more important than anything that success in my career was everything and now I realize how wrong I was those things do matter they are important but not as important as kindness not as important as having the ability to enjoy simple things the more you know the less you need

I often appreciate the kindness that I receive from others, but I rarely appreciate my own gift of kindness to others. Looking in to appreciate my own kindness to others can make me more aware of my motivations for and needs to be kind.

I never thought that thinking about a moment when you shared kindness may relieve you from hurting yourself too much. This helped me realized that truly loving yourself is also truly loving others.

As within, so without
This one was tough for me. I had trouble thinking of a time i was nice to someone else (although im sure i am), and it made me realize that i am really hard on other people and how they treat me. If i do not accept my own kindness, i wont be able to accept other peoples kindness.

Kindness reminds of being selfish
I’m kind to people so that they acknowledge me and so that i feel connected to them. It is a very sefish act which makes me upset to think about.

I learned that ... one’s mood changes in an instant. You feel upbeat and then suddenly you’ll feel drowned, stuck in a hole. Today’ morning I went to the gym, got in a workout, it felt amazing. Returning back I felt tired, really sleepy which might of been because I was stuck in a car almost the whole day. Later on, I felt a sort of frustration and stress. Moods are really sudden.

Facing the Unkindness
Maybe I cannot see my kindness. I cannot find it within my memory banks. Perhaps it is something I need to focus on more. It is more than a feeling but an action.

Forgiving
I’ve noticed that I hold a grudge sometimes. Mainly in the sense that I want whoever hurt me to feel the pain I did or understand what their actions made me feel. I slowly learned that the best way to show them their mistakes is to be the bigger person and forgive them and move on. Showing kindness and minding my own business. If we take the focus off of ourselves, we are able to accomplish so much more and change ourselves.

My horrible life
I feel deserted in my family. They treat me like I’m not here. And the only time I get noticed is if I’m at a hospital, they can’t find me, I’ve barricaded my self in my room or I’m being rude mean or misbehaving. Isn’t that sad how that’s the only way I get noticed. They started paying a little more attention to me on December 27th 2018. Cause my dog died. She was the one who’d protect me. She’d growl when I was yelled at. I wanna run away. I need to disappear.

I learned that being kind to people makes me feel really good inside. Sometimes I can get irritated when a lot of people want to hangout with my during the weekends, or when people are always calling and texting me. I realized it is because I’m kind an led I must be fun to be with. I must realize that people see me differently than I see myself, and that’s a good thing. ❤️
