It’s the last day of Random Acts of Kindness Week. And since you’ve spent the week doing random acts of kindness for others, I think today is a good day to do a little something for yourself. You might treat yourself to a bubble bath or try nixing the negative voice in your head. But do something for you.
I’m personally going to spend the day letting myself be soft. It’s easy to build a wall without knowing it. One too many disappointments or heartbreaks will do it. But what’s funny about these walls we build is that we think they’ll protect us from the next upset. But they don’t. You still get knocked down. I guess it’s not what knocks you down or how many times in life you get knocked down that defines your resilience but who you are when you get back up. Are you the same ol’ girl you always were? Or are you a harder version of yourself? Today, I’m going to give myself permission to take down the walls and be soft. I feel more authentic already. Maybe I’ll do it all over again tomorrow.
