It’s been 6 months since this year’s first annual Kindness Challenge ended which means we’re 6 months away from the next one! I’m starting the process now to come up with new exercises, graphics, and quotes. I started the challenge this year in celebration of reaching 500 followers back in March and we’re currently almost 2,000 strong in this community!

Kindness Challenge Close

Attention all Kindness Challenge participants!

One of the things that I’m excited to share is this challenge was divinely orchestrated. I received the idea, weekly challenge focuses, and the foundation of the post for each week during a deep meditation session. As I read each week as a participant, I was excited and it all felt new to me because it was like I was reading it for the first time. I received confirmation in the form of quotes and videos. I always write my post content first and then go out on the web in search of photos, quotes and in this case videos to bring visual appeal to the post. I was nothing short of astounded when I came across content from speakers, spiritual leaders, etc. that I had never heard before and it complimented the focus perfectly!

Personal Reflection Of the Kindness Challenge

What an incredible journey! I have learned so much about myself during this 7 week adventure. While I didn’t consider myself one of these people that’s so kind it makes your heart melt when you’re around them, I also didn’t consider myself unkind before the challenge. After focusing on incorporating kindness in its many forms in my life, I’ve found that it’s enhanced my personal 3 year journey to be the best version of myself. Not only does it feel great to be kind to other people but it helps to keep me in a better frame of mind. Continue reading “Personal Reflection Of the Kindness Challenge”

Week 7 Kindness Challenge|Secret Kindness

Attention all Kindness Challenge Participants!

The Kindness Challenge is coming to an end. Over the past 6 weeks we’ve explored many ways of practicing kindness daily. We started with ourselves and have expanded it to the world around us. Although the challenge itself is coming to a close, that doesn’t mean that it ever really ends. For many this seed has been planted and has already begun to sprout. I encourage you to continue to tend to this beautiful flower of kindness that you’ve put so much effort into nurturing over the past 6 weeks.

My Kindness Role Models|Kindness Challenge Week 6 Reflection

This was such an amazing week for me! Even though the challenge focus was about people who inspire you to be more kind, everything we’ve been practicing for the past 5 weeks came so naturally. I found myself noticing kindness all around me, reacting from a place of kindness even in the most frustrating and irritating situations (both at home and outside of it) and practicing gratitude often throughout my day. All of this helps to manage my emotions and responses better and brings out the best in me.
