Kill It With Kindness

At the end of the day, why does it matter?

At the end of the day, what is most important to you and how have you expressed that?

At the end of the day, are you your best self? 

For me, it is the people in my life that are incredibly important. And sometimes heated emotions can take over and cause conflict in my head. My actions and words don’t always reflect what I am feeling deep inside. I want to be proactive, not reactive, because human nature isn’t always pretty or thruthful. If we feel we’ve been let down, misunderstood or treated unfairly, negative emotions may take control of us. But chances are, whatever or whoever was a part of those negative feelings, did not act with that intention. There is more to the story…

And at the end of the day, I want to make sure I am my best self. I want to kill them with kindness; show people my loving, positive character and those closest to me, just how much I appreciate them. 

Because at the end of the day, the trivial things don’t matter. Assumptions don’t matter. And living with a bad taste in your mouth isn’t going to help you or anyone around you.

Communicating with calmness and kindness, will always surface the truth, and your best self.

Stripped Strengths

All of these days you’ve spent on earth have taught you many, many things. Things you’ve learned, witnessed, and developed. These things equate to education and experience, some tangible and some not. They have shaped you into the person you are today and the influence you have had on others and the planet.

All of these things you’ve achieved – education and experience – can never be taken away from you. No one can strip you of your strengths. Hold on to your power and stay true to yourself. Remind yourself of your strengths and keep working toward achieving more. Always learning; always growing. Never stagnant.

If someone doubts your strengths or influences you to question your own, they don’t deserve to have you in their life. Surround yourself with people who make you see the world differently, who push you to be a better person, who show you more beauty in the world than you thought existed, who support you, and who are so confident in themselves that they aren’t afraid to acknowledge your strengths, to you and others.

That is the most admirable strength – recognizing the strengths in yourself, and others.

That to me, is sexy.
