Did you know that March is International Kindness Month? Well, we can make it that!
This month I’ve decided to play a new game and see if I can win! The rules and objective are simple: see if I can go all month and speak only kind and thoughtful words... and be respectful of others in how I interact.
It is possible to have boundaries, let others know of them, in a confident, yet kind and gentle way. If a person chooses to be rude or thoughtless, I can either choose to say nothing or I can speak words that are truth yet said in a kind manner. Either way I’m in control of the situation. Remember it takes two to have an argument.
So far so good for me, three days in. Even if I slip once or twice I’ll catch myself, correct it and go on. I’ll let you know at the end of the month how I did and what I learned.
How about you? Do you want to join me?
Together we Can make March the international Kindness month.
By all of us doing this, being kind may just become habit in other months too! And it’ll rub off on others. Wow, just envision that!
