Mystery package

I received a couple of packages today, but one of them I wasn’t expecting and it is a mystery, because I did not order this. It came from Blurt and I received a colouring book and a postcard with a positive quote. A lovely gift received. Thank you, if you are reading this.

Self-kindness went out of the window today

I have talked about being kind to ourselves in other people’s blog posts when the subject has come up and I think I mentioned it here somewhere too. I know I was being aware of not slipping backwards, which I revealed in this post. But today, my self-kindness has been going out the window in parts. I have called myself stupid a few times today, one of them I only remember for what it was for and it was minor. So I need to nip this in the bud. (I gave myself a good ticking off prior to writing this post. Did I need to tell myself off anymore? lol)

It has probably just been a long day for me, as I have been up since just before 6am for a delivery that could come anytime today. (This came this afternoon.) 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?

Have you read these posts?

Kindness

Kindness to me is:

  • Remembering the very basics our parents taught us, which is thank you and please. It does not cost anything to remember these simple manners.
  • Holding the door for someone
  • Giving up that disabled seat for who it is meant for; the elderly and disabled, or anyone who is struggling to stand on a crowded bus
  • Seeing a person for who they are, beyond their physical appearance, or disability
  • Seeing every person for who they are, we are all individuals
  • Giving kindness
  • When you are struggling but someone gives you a reason to carry on
  • A simple hello to someone you pass, or a short conversation at the bus stop
  • Being able to give kindness when you are struggling yourself
