JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 25 :: kindness is…

25 Jan

Grits. Guts. Grace.

On the eve of my birthday I realize this:
It takes a lot of guts to get older. Some Grit, Guts and Grace. Getting older is not child’s play is it?

Not that I consider myself old by any stretch of the imagination. I still feel like a small spark in the universe expanding at light speed.

But tonight as I reflect on my birthday, and that little spark that came to be me, I am curious about kindness. Wondering what is the kindest thing I could possibly do to honor this day ahead.

I will go to the spa for a little treat – that is already in the works.
I will reflect on my mom and dad, the two who are kindly responsible.

But I am also reflecting on that inner part of me that never wants to grow up. The part that wants to learn, grow, expand, and soak up everything around her like a sponge…because this world is so big in so many ways and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to get to ALL of it.

It seems like that might be the kindest gift I can give myself. To always be on the lookout for growth. And a little bit of that Grit, Guts and Grace.

More tomorrow.
