Intention for Kindness Challenge

I truly believe that if we don’t instill pockets of kindness into every nook and cranny around the world, it could quickly become a lost practice. As I said in a previous post, I believe that even a smile can go a long way and create a difference far beyond the person smiling and the person receiving the smile. My hope would be that kindness can be spread around the world and be as effective as a yawn traveling from one person to another.

This week I stumbled upon Niki Meadows blog The Richness of a Simple Life and a challenge she created to inspire fellow bloggers to think and write about kindness. The challenge consists of creating one post a week for seven weeks based on a prompt provided by her.

What particularly intrigued me about her challenge was that several of the weekly topics related to being kind toward yourself and not just others.

Although I know that both are intricately connected and that it is hard to fully embrace one without the other, self-kindness is definitely an area that will be harder to explore for me. But I am willing to take the challenge.

When I started finding myself debating the difference between self-love, self-compassion and self-acceptance and began researching how each could be defined, lived, and put together to make the full and larger picture, I knew I owed it to myself to take this challenge and see where it will lead.

I plan on posting my challenge posts on Wednesdays. I am also very curious to see, where the fellow challenge participant bloggers will take the topics and hope to gain new insights to apply for myself.

I hope you will follow along for the journey.

  1. I’m so excited to see where this journey takes you! You’re not alone, last year self-kindness was only the first week of the challenge. After reading over 50 reflection posts, I wrote down there needed to be at least 3 weeks of self-kindness this year.

    I encourage you to post the Wednesday after you’ve completed the week so you give yourself the benefit of working through the prompt the entire week. Unless you plan to write on the weekend and schedule the post for the following weekend. 🙈

    So glad to have you along for the journey. 💖💖💖
