JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 365 :: a kind finale

31 Dec
{farewell 2017}

And here we are! The last day of 2017. The grand finale. The big hurrah… to a year of kindness.

There are so many words for kindness… I know because I looked them up:

And because I also just lived out an entire year pondering the power of kindness… Intentional acts of kindness to be exact. While I entered the year thinking I would be sprinkling kindness around the world in grand and amazing ways, what really happened was this — I found kindness in my own heart.

So much closer to home.

That always seems to be the way it goes with these promises. They open up areas inside of me I never knew existed. Never could have expected…and definitely didn’t plan on discovering. Even though they were there the entire time.

That’s the magic and the power of a purposeful promise. It’s always a game of setting an intention and then just showing up. Every single day. That’s all it takes. And then it will take you on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least a year!) full of twists and turns and surprise and delight until you end up sitting at your computer on the last day of the year realizing how perfect the entire year unfolded right before your very eyes.

Thank you, kindness. For letting me chase you this year, and then showing me you were right here all along, pulling at my heartstrings.

Thank you, kindness. For teaching me to look for you, starting inside myself and then spotting you inside the smiles, eyes, laughter, and love of others.

Most of all, thank you for teaching me to be more kind.

Tomorrow I announce a new promise for 2018… want to join me!?
Drumroll, please……

More tomorrow…


{thank you, kindness}
