Day 15 of the #blurtselfcareathon – Kindness

I did not do yesterday’s post, which was ‘Squad,’ as I could not think for what to write for this, as I did not really have anything personal to share. Today’s post is ‘Kindness,’ which I have kept short and sweet. I know many of you, will agree with this. 🙂
Have a good day. x

“Kindness costs nothing.

I was waiting for three  planters with trellis and I have a problem with one of them received, as it is damaged. So I have emailed about that. Surprisingly, I am not tired, because usually tiredness can make me snappy with myself.

How has your self-kindness been?
