Awesome meditation this morning on kindness 💚 Let it permeate every area of your life 🙏☀️🌈
Focusing on kindness helps you be kind to others to yourself but also receive kindness in return as well. It's a great feeling.

I am really hard on myself and hardly am kind to myself.
I must be kind, loving and patient with myself every day. I have negative self talk that needs to stop

Thinking about kindness
I'm usually kind to others all of the time, but I don't do it to myself. I don't really believe that I deserve it, so all I see is beauty on the outside. It's really hard to actually see good things about me and truly believe in it.

This meditation was a vital reminder of the the importance of kindness. How it is something we can so easily give and extend to others and demonstrate our love.

Practice
Kindness is something we all have naturally. We lose it as we get older sometimes. It is important to go back to being childlike and kind to everyone no matter where they come from, what their past is, or what they seem to be now. Mean people are the hardest to be kind to but the ones who need it the most. You won't feel bad after being kind to someone.

Inward kindness
To love ones self is just as important as loving those around you. No one can love on an empty tank.

Loving myself
I learned that the first step in loving others is to love myself. To forgive myself and be kind to myself so that I can begin to love me and everything that is me. That love, I can then radiate to others, forgive others, be kind to others.

I learned that I need to accept that I am worthy of kindness and that has to be a priority, each day, not after everything and everyone else but as a starting point.

I appreciate my wisdom...
I appreciate that I am smart (wise) enough to know when I should listen, when I really want to talk.

Being Kind
Reflecting on kindness both to one's own self and to others sure did help me in releasing my stress and to set right my priorities. Kindness is the magic word for me for today.

Act.
I often get mixed up in people who I give endless love to but neglect to return it. It's always been hard to tell when to justify behaviors, but kindness is love. Listen to that. Acts of kindness are how you can tell apart the people who also have self love. Which is why we are all here, afterall.

Kindness
Showing kindness to yourself and others is an act of love and appreciation. I will show kindness to myself today by being patient and compassionate with my emotions. I will show kindness to others by listening to what they are saying with empathy and understanding.

Self love is as important as loving others. It need not be selfish.
Kindness is a direct link to love. It manifests itself in generous acts.

Kindness Is Generated From Within
We cannot give from an empty vessel. We must first be filled with compassion and love for ourselves before we can generate it into the atmosphere around us.

To properly love and show kindness to others, I️ need to learn to love and show kindness to myself as well. I️ tend to give of myself and love others before myself.

I can appreciate that we should take a minute every day to give thanks and attempt to bring love in to those we know and love through kindness.

What an appropriate meditation for an action that just took place. I take a a class to better my life but there are a few that just don’t take class seriously or don’t do the homework and it frustrates me. I show up, I participate and I take time in doing my work. Tonite, I walked out and quit. One of the instructors caught me and asked what was wrong and I broke down in tears and left. It may have been wrong to leave in the middle of class, bug I have my dignity too. This mediation allowed me to see that, but too see that when I’m ready I need to apologize to the instructors for walking out as well.

It is important to be as kind to myself as I am to others. I too am worthy.

Love
Is not an abstract thing, an idea unrelated to me and my present moment. It is made of acts of kindness towards me, and the others. It is made of patience, softness, gratitude, humility, honesty, playfulness, and joy.

Actions
The age old adage still applies: actions speak louder than words. What people choose to do with and for you show the love they have for you. While I often find myself questioning if someone truly cares about me, I must remind myself that they make choices and do things that someone who did not care about me would not do. I must also take the time to love and care for myself as I do for others.

I completely disagree with the premise of this exercise.
Love is a powerful emotion between two and sometimes more people that has huge ramifications for the interactions between those people. Kindness is simply not being an asshole. Love is not the default feeling between two people It must be built up towards that. However kindness should be the default way we treat others. So if we elevate kindness to the status of love, something that must be built up towards, then being an asshole become the default. Kindness is just the way you act every day because you’re not a jerk.

Kindness is love
I like the spoken word meditations. They allow me to easily focus my thoughts on one topic. This was an excellent one. To bring thoughts to mind on acts of kindness that I have shared with others and how I am also kind to myself. A forward looking thought into tomorrow and the future as well.

Self love...
I often have to resolve the self hate within me and putting on the truth which is that i am a created being with intrinsic worth. Others are the same and i am always in the process of loving them and myself more. But im grateful to continue to understand and remember that i am loved and therefore can share that with others. I get anxious about my performance in upcoming events on the horizon. I get anxious about being deemed worth while to others or worth anything at all... I withdraw when i forget my worth and accept a lie that it doesnt matter if i try to do anything worth while or good because i will never be good anyways. My self expectations and rules and laws i feel governed by are an illusion to the reality that i am in a process. Today i am here and choosing to have faith and trust that i am a worth while being and that i am cared for by the universe. Today i am enough. My life is full of mistakes... but mistakes arent a bad thing... all things can be used for good.

One thing I struggle with is constantly asking myself why I feel a certain way, but asking it in a blaming manner. This meditation about kindness to myself helped me to realize I can be kind to myself when I’m feeling various ways. Instead of asking why, I can acknowledge that I feel whatever way, and tell myself that it is okay to feel.

Kindness is key
I learnt that without acts of kindness, love cannot be revealed as true. Actions speak louder than words, this includes people around you but also yourself ❤️🎈

It's important to practice loving kindness internally too. It's not only important to send that out to others, but to treat myself that way too.

Daily self reflection involving self love is good for the mind and soul.

Kindness
Thinking about how i will conduct kind acts is a good way to set an intention for the day. I like to think about this in terms of appeasing people’s love languages: Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Quality time, Touch, Acts of service

Acts of kindness
Giving out acts of kindness to ourselves and people around us propels us to the next level of self loving and well being. Favourited this meditation.

I need to be mindful of loving myself first
So that I may later love people and be loved by people. Treat yourself as you would treat others.

Self love
How can I show myself kindness? I can be more aware of the thoughts I think. I can choose a positive thought instead of one draped in judgment or ego. I can take time to be grateful for what I do have, both within and externally, rather than dwelling on things I do not have. I can think kind thoughts about others, for I truly believe the good things we pick out in other people can be found within ourselves, too.

Be kind to yourself
This is a great reminder that people show love through the kindness they give to others. Don’t forget to also show yourself love , and be kind to yourself

Fill yourself with kindness first.
It enables you to show kindness to others. If you’re too busy hating yourself you will not see whether the people close to you are in need of your kindness and love.

Day 1
This is my day 1 of cultivating a meditation practice. My biggest challenge with meditation has always been that my mind tends to wander, and today was no exception. I have to consciously refocus myself throughout the session. I hope that my presence will deepen as I continue.

Being kind to yourself is not always indulging in what is pleasurable or easy. Sometimes it is doing the hard things, and doing them with love.

"Kindness is hoe we show love inwardly and outwardly. Its how we show love to ourselves." Working on speaking kind words to myself and infusing kind actions into my life.

An act of kindness requires so little and gives so incredibly much in return. It costs nothing but gives you and everybody around the greatest reward. Let’s all be more kind. To others but also to ourselves.

Beautiful and simply. This message could really change moods
I learned that although it made me sad acknowledging that I’m not kind to myself nearly enough the sadness I felt could be a doorway into the depths of self-love for which exploration of this love can only bring kindness to myself and others

I feel much calmer and ready to interact with people in a healthy way.
I learned that I don’t know how to show myself love. It’s something to work on!

Hmmm...
I felt more noticeably relaxed and present, which is unusual for me as I’m usually in my own head making judgements about myself. I think 3 minutes a day is a great start.

Kindness is Love
I enjoyed this meditation. I especially loved the reminders of the importance of acts of kindness within. It’s my intention to try to be more focused on acts of kindness within, whether it’s a healthy meal, time in the sunshine, or allowing myself relaxing time. I know the acts of kindness to self will multiply my acts of kindness to others, which always seems so much easier.

Radiate love and kindness
Kindness can be given through simple things. Not by money 💰or materialistic items but just by simply listening to someone’s story they have to share. Just listen 👂🏼. It could make someone’s day. I know someone simply listening to my has surely made mine. SCD.

The universe needs kindness
I like the idea of trying to picture what my face looks like when I’ve been given the gift of a random act of kindness ->🤭 or 😌 I think I’m a very kind person but everyone can do more to make kindness and these faces 😍😆☺️🤗😬 I’m going to start with my mom. Mothers always need the most love and kindness.

Kindness is love
It was my first 7 min meditation. I noticed my mind was a bit anxious. It’s definitely a space for more “patience” after being used to 3 minutes, but it allowed for my meditation to marinate deeper into my mind. Show acts of kindness outward and Inward. Very pleasant session.
