This is the zone you never want to enter. People are extremely fragile and volnerable when they open their heart to someone. Taking advantage of this trust and responding back with anything but kindness may end up breaking their heart, and nothing is more painful than a broken heart. Always be mindful of other's feelings, time your reactions right and avoid breaking a heart and leaving a wound in their life for eternity. This may or may not be what they deserve to get, but it is certainly what you deserve to be: a loving human. . . . . . #kind #kindness #love #humanity #life #loving #tip #human #learn #bekindtooneanother #kindnesstips #ellendegeneres #equality #humanrights #happiness #happy #giving #forgiveness #forgiving #sympathy #empathy #together #laughter #begood #bekind #kindessmatters #spreadkindness
Children look up to you. Always be mindful of how you act in front of them. Be kind to them and teach them to be kind to others. Practice with them, make sure they observe different acts of kindness, this will make our world a better place for them to grow up in... . . . . #kind #kindness #love #humanity #life #loving #tip #human #learn #bekindtooneanother #kindnesstips #ellendegeneres #equality #humanrights #happiness #happy #giving #forgiveness #forgiving #sympathy #empathy #together #laughter #begood #bekind #kindessmatters #spreadkindness
#Repost @fiveminutejournal with @get_repost ・・・ World impact does not need to be starting a billion dollar company, curing cancer, or becoming a world leader.

Ever feel like you just can’t quite enjoy the holidays because you’re in the middle of an emotional shit-storm that seems to make the season trying, stressful, and overwhelming? Maybe it’s your first holiday after being newly divorced. ⠀ ⠀ Or maybe it’s the fifth Christmas without your beloved mother, and you can’t seem to understand why it’s still so damn hard for you. ⠀ ⠀ Or perhaps you just moved your family across the country and although it was an amazing decision for you, you still find yourself incredibly nostalgic, overly emotional, and sensitive.⠀ ⠀ If any of that sounds familiar, it’s likely that there is something in your world that needs a little processing. (And, no there’s nothing wrong with you.) ⠀ ⠀ Have a listen through this episode where I share six things you can do to work through all the “feels” you’re having during this temperamental time. ⠀ _________________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀ Link in bio or find us on iTunes or your fav podcast app or visit TheJoyJunkie.com/280 _________________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife
Regardless of your beliefs, being kind is something the world needs more of. Be a beacon of light in this dark and dreary world. #kindess #kindessmatters #spiritual #spiritualjourney
You don’t always need thousands and millions to make someone smile..All it takes is a random act of kindness at a time :) #smile #kindessmatters #humanity #milliondollarsmile #islamabad #islamabadgram
You don't necessarily have to interact with one. You can simply choose to respect them, care about their pains and their happiness, be mindful of their habitats and like them without ever being close to them. It only makes us better human beings when we love other creatures. . . . #kind #kindness #love #humanity #life #loving #tip #human #learn #bekindtooneanother #kindnesstips #ellendegeneres #equality #humanrights #happiness #happy #giving #forgiveness #forgiving #sympathy #empathy #together #laughter #begood #bekind #kindessmatters #spreadkindness
Time for a little #whiskeywisdom on this lovely Sunday night!⠀ ⠀ So, I'm a TOTAL glass-is-half-full kind of girl. I always figured... if it's the same mutha-fuckin' glass, why not see it in a way that feels good? Feels optimistic? Hopeful?⠀ ⠀ Looking on the bright side never hurt anyone. ⠀ Being a pessimistic, cynical skeptic never manifests a bright, happy existence. ⠀ Like, ever.⠀ ⠀ Know any of those people who you ask them how they are and something is ALWAYS wrong? They're always a victim to their circumstances? It's always, "well, of course that would happen to me" and shit.⠀ ⠀ And, how does it feel to be around these peeps? Awful. ⠀ ⠀ Listen to me. It's the same. Fucking. Glass. ⠀ The rest is perspective. ⠀ Focus on the Bad and you get a shit-ton more Bad.⠀ Focus on the Good and you get a shit-ton more Good.⠀ ⠀ Plus, whiskey.⠀ ⠀ ________________________________________⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife
If nothing else, just be a damn good person. ⁣ ⁣ Be the one who smiles first when you come face to face with another human being. Be the one who exhibits patience in a long line when you’re running out of time and energy. Be the one who notices how tired the cashier is and say something to make them feel appreciated. Be the one to hold the door open. Be the one to see the light in the darkness. ⁣ ⁣ Just be the light instead of the light dimmer. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You’ve got this. ❤️Vicki #bethelight #bekind #makeadifference #letgo #bepatient #beagoodperson #integritymatters #kindessmatters #burnthedamncape #spreadlove
Hands up in the air, like you just don’t care! 🙌🏻 Don’t hang onto anger or resentment, let it go and free yourself. ❤️ #yourstorymatters
The girls and I went shopping this afternoon to find something nice to wear to Papo’s memorial service tomorrow. As we shopped, we told stories of Papo and talked a lot about grief/sadness when you lose someone you love. When we walked to the car, a woman stopped us and said she wanted to do something kind for someone, and handed us this beautiful bouquet of flowers. She wished us a Merry Christmas and drove off. This simple gesture was just the thing to pick our spirits up and we talked the whole way home about how we could pay it forward to someone else. Just a simple reminder to spread kindness because you never know who might need it the most. Ava is convinced this was Papo’s way of saying hello😊 #kindessmatters #grief #mygirls #spreadkindess #randomactsofkindness #momlife
In light of events that have happened lately, I am reminded of how important it is to have compassion for others. Especially for ones that you feel may have wronged you. You truly may never know what is going on in some one else's life. #kindness #compassion #forgiveness #loveofchrist #kindessmatters
In this world we live in, there’s a great deal of darkness and pain. Turn on the news and you’ll easily hear tradegy at every turn. ⁣ ⁣ Everyone carries pain. Everyone is working through something. ⁣ ⁣ Instead of judging or getting angry, breathe and be kind. You never know what battle someone is facing on the inside, no matter what social media shows of their life. ⁣ ⁣ You’ve got this. ❤️Vicki #mindfulmoment #bekind #kindessmatters #bethelight #compassion #youvegotthis #burnthedamncape #selflove #lifecoach #positivevibes #bethankful

It's easy to love someone who is exactly like you, but it's loving someone different that makes the real difference in our world. Love people with different believes, religions, preferences, colors, tastes and so on. The world needs more people who love the different... . . . #kind #kindness #love #humanity #life #loving #tip #human #learn #bekindtooneanother #kindnesstips #ellendegeneres #equality #humanrights #happiness #happy #giving #forgiveness #forgiving #sympathy #empathy #together #laughter #begood #bekind #kindessmatters #spreadkindness

Even though the holiday season is supposed to be all merry and bright and full of glad tidings, it’s quite certain that you’ve found yourself engaged with total overwhelm, buckling from the stress, and dangerously approaching burnout. Although fun and festive, it can take a sheer act of god to keep you from losing your ever-lovin’ mind during the chaos of this time of year, amiright!?⠀ ⠀ If you have found yourself overloaded by holiday stress and obligations, get ready for a huge sigh of relief. On this week’s show, I sound off on six things you can start doing immediately to relinquish all the holiday overwhelm and chaos so you can actually enjoy the things about this time of year that truly mean the most to you.⠀ _________________________________________ ⠀ ⠀⠀ Link in bio or find us on iTunes or your fav ⠀ podcast app or visit TheJoyJunkie.com/279 _________________________________________⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife

Alright, to #TBT to that one time in '97 when I went on a cruise and totally thought it was all about modeling pics. I was a little obsessed with modeling in the 90s. Never was one. Like, at all. ⠀ ⠀ This is back in a time when I wouldn't leave the house without makeup. I had made up this "rule" about how I had to present myself at all times. Total insecurity. It took me many years to shift this "rule" but now I am usually sans makeup, unless I have an awesome excuse to get dolled up, in which case, I fucking love it. But, now it feels way more about my creative expression than feeling "not enough" without it. ⠀ ⠀ Still a work in progress, but truly love how far I've come. Any "rules" you've created for yourself that actually only contribute to your suffering? #throwbackthursday ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ _________________________________________⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife
This is for those of you who have been told you are...⠀ ⠀ Too sensitive⠀ Too loud⠀ Too quiet⠀ Too dramatic⠀ Too emotional⠀ Too shy⠀ Too closed off⠀ Too open ⠀ Too superficial⠀ Too grounded⠀ Too old, fat, skinny, young, pretty, ugly, inexperienced, over-qualified...⠀ ⠀ Just. Too. Fucking. Much.⠀ ⠀ Now, telling someone to shut the fuck up is not exactly full of #GraceAndKindness but listen to me, love... ⠀ ⠀ You aren't "too much" of anything. So, stop listening to the nay-sayers and know that you are EXACTLY as mutha-fuckin' brilliant as you're supposed to be.⠀ ⠀ Embrace your sensitivity, skinniness, shyness or whatever. YOU are the only one who needs to approve. JUST you.⠀ ⠀ So shine on, my loves. ⠀ Shine. On.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ _________________________________________⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife
If it’s not the multitude of gifts to buy or the food to prep, then it’s surely the family drama or workplace obligations that bring you to your breaking point during the holiday season. ⠀ ⠀ And while you’re spending money on shit you don’t want to buy or baking food for people you don’t even enjoy very much, you find yourself wondering why the fucking peace on earth has eluded you. But, lord help you if you *don’t* show up to the office party with the secret santa gift or all hell might break loose if you tell the in-laws you can’t make it this year. ⠀ ⠀ Have a listen to this week's pod where I share 6 things you can do to manage your holiday stress. Because... peace.⠀ ⠀ This pod explores:⠀ ⠀ • How your attachment to things being P E R F E C T may be causing you unnecessary stress and overwhelm ⠀ • My favorite tool to figure out exactly how (and with whom) I want to spend my time and energy⠀ • How to decline unwanted invitations with the utmost grace and kindness… because, you need some downtime, Babycakes!⠀ • How to not get sucked into other people’s holiday stress and obligations⠀ _________________________________________ ⠀ ⠀⠀ Link in bio or find us on iTunes or your fav ⠀ podcast app or visit TheJoyJunkie.com/279⠀ _________________________________________⠀ #thejoyjunkie #podcast #chelseahandler #bossbabe #lovenotwar #whiskeygirl #confidenceissexy #lifelover #mrandmrssmith #speakyourmind #micdrop #betches #putmeincoach #spiritjunkie #crazysexymiracles #ellenshow #thinkpositive #selfworth #fallontonight #jimmyfallon #treyparker #kindessmatters #bodylove #dontbeadick #jillianmichaels #betterlife
I wanted to share this email that I received from Travis’ 8th grade Spanish teacher today. I can’t even begin to express how much this meant to me. They were supposed to take a Spanish test today, but she postponed it because she truly cares about their mental and emotional health. What a phenomenal teacher! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #wonderfulteacher #kindessmatters #grace #kindness #thisiswhyisupport #redfored

This summer I made a friend on the tube and her name is Elizabeth. One afternoon in July, I hopped on a train unsure whether I was going in the right direction, so I asked the young woman next to me for guidance. Immediately, I noticed that she had a North American accent. Turns out, that not only is she Canadian, but a Nova Scotian too. 🇨🇦 What’s more, she had been studying in London and was now looking for a job in journalism... We chatted, exchanged details and I promised to introduce her to some of my contacts at national newspapers. A few months later, thanks to her cracking CV and smashing some interviews, she started her dream job working on her first choice desk at The Telegraph! 🤩 The moral of the story? I got my start in journalism back in 2006 when a Canadian friend of mine (thanks @ukcanada ) met someone in the industry at a family party. I had just finished my NCTJ post-grad diploma and he told Robin that I should send him my CV. He then had his PR teams sent it to all the newspapers - I was none the wiser! 🤭 One day, I got a call from @iancowieuk and @muchmore_less , went into the Telegraph for an interview on the personal finance desk and the rest is history. Last week, Elizabeth and I met for a catch up before she flies home for Christmas and she very kindly gave me this lovely maple leaf from Nova Scotia. Not only does it represent the fact that we Canadians can find each other anywhere, but also that you never know what can happen, who you are going to meet or when you’ll make a friend. It also will remind me how good it feels to “pay it forward” and pass on a bit of the random luck I have been fortunate to experience. It gives me all the feels. 😍 Do you have a story of how a chance encounter changed your life plan? #payitforward #kindessmatters #chanceencounters #canadiansinlondon #novascotia #womenhelpingwomen #girlssupportgirls #journalism
So many reasons why, be kind. Always. ♡ #kindessmatters #sky #happycolors #blue #mood #inspire

Legs + Core work again. Swipe. So many of my friends are going through a hard time this holiday. Be grateful for the joy you have as so many are dealing w/ the emptiness of holidays long past, when families were together in ways no longer possible. Be kind to people. Be sincere in your hopes. Show true solicitude for others. This has to begin by taking care of yourself, mind, body, & spirit. You cannot pour from an empty cup. This is the season of giving, not things, but of yourself. The people in your life need you. Take care of yourself, darlings, so your cup overflows & is love that helps fill the emptiness others feel with joy, again. Get your time in, loves. ❤ Everyday. Be strong. Be you.

🌟Glaub an dich! 🌟 #dontstopbelieving 🔹🔸🔹 Am Wochende hatte ich einen dieser Zweifeltage. Der innere Kritiker beziehungsweise mein Teufelchen war stark und hat mir beständig Selbstzweifel ins Ohr geflüstert: „Warum hast du den guten Job gekünigt? Schau mal, wie wenig du dir momentan leisten kannst!” „Ist es so wie du es dir vorgestellt hast? So richtig berühmt sind deine Geschichten ja nicht …“ „Sind deine Geschichten überhaupt gut genug?“ „Meinst du wirklich das interessiert jemanden?“ „Bist du wirklich GUT GENUG?“ 🔹🔸🔹 Autsch! 😑 Es tut weh, wenn man das hört. Es schmerzt und die Selbstzweifel scheinen einen innerlich zu zerfressen. Oft war ich kurz davor einfach loszuheulen und zu beschließen, dass ich alles aufgebe. Doch ich hab inne gehalten. Erstens, weil ich manchmal eine unglaubliche Drama Queen bin und gerne dazu neige eine “Szene” zu machen. Also in meinem Kopf. 😅 Nicht äußerlich. Aber innerlich geht dann das Drama ab. Fetzen fliegen, Tische werden umgehaut, es wird geschrien und gekeift. Ganz großes Drama … 💁🏽‍♀️ *übertriebenes Schnipsen in der Luft* Zweitens, weil ich mittlerweile weiß, dass diese Stimme nicht meine ist. Das Teufelchen, das da zu mir spricht, besteht aus alten Glaubenssätzen und dem Sicherheitsdenken, das mir eingetrichtert wurde. Ein Beispiel: „Mit Schreiben oder als Künstler kann man ja kein Geld verdienen!“ oder „Wir sind Arbeiterklasse. Denke nicht, dass wir uns was besseres leisten könnten.“ 🔹🔸🔹 Aber da ich mit Disney groß geworden bin und ich schon immer all diese Geschichten in mir hatte, weiß ich mittlerweile, dass das Bullshit ist. Ha! Kleines Teufelchen, so schnell kriegst du mich nicht. Ja, ich hatte einen schwachen Tag und du warst vielleicht stärker als ich. Aber ich gebe nicht auf. Ich glaube weiter an mich. ❤️🙏🏽 Und genauso solltest du an dich glauben! Glaube an dich! Oder wie Journey so schön singt: 🌟DON‘T STOP BELIEVING! 🌟

This sweet boy. He almost gave me the perfect Christmas photo moment, had he been sitting there reading The Night Before Christmas. Instead, he melted my heart by looking at our family photo books. I can’t tell you how much it meant to me that he wanted to climb up on the bench and look at all the photos mama has taken over the years of him and his brothers. 💕 (By the time I got my camera out he’d moved on to the album from our Day in the Life shoot with @kirstenlphotog so that image of C you see in the book belongs to that amazingly talented artist 💜). . Wow, y’all. Photos matter. **Printing** your photos greatly matters. Technology is fleeting and ever changing. Paper easily lasts 100 years when ignored — not even well taken care of — so imagine how many generations of your decedents will see the photos you take if you make sure to preserve them?! I was an archivist in training before I decided to stop after my BA and have babies. A history major who collects family history like some collect Rea Dunn ceramics(😉😅). PRINT YOUR PHOTOS. 💜💜💜 . If you need source ideas, I personally love Blurb for our photos books. For that price range they are the best quality (and I’ve shopped a lot of brands in my professional photography days!). I print our books every quarter, which works out wonderfully because that’s about as often as Blurb runs their 40% sales. It’s a total win! (This is #notanad by the way, just my personal soapbox. Lol). . Do any of you have treasured family photos? How were they passed down to you? I have so very few. So very, very few. Not a single image of any of my grandmothers before they were grandmothers, and the same of my grandfathers. Or even my parents! Ohhh, how I hope my kiddos will continue to appreciate and one day treasure the photos I’m taking for them. For their children. And their children. Family history is such a gift, isn’t it? 💜 . . . #fourgables #fourgablesfarmhouse #readingnook #photobook #kindness #kindessmatters #familyhistory #childhoodmemories #childhoodunplugged #scenes_not_screens #letthekids #documetaryphotography #familydocumentaryphotography #familyphotojournalism #ditl #dayinthelife #yourdaysmatter #everydaymatters
I strongly believe in letting sh!t go, smiling at strangers, saying hello& just being kind. It’s easier to be kind then to be bitter& mean. Although you don’t have to like everyone, you also don’t have to be mean towards them. MAKE SOMEONE SMILE🤗Negative feelings and actions are going to sink you down more then the person you are directing your thoughts at. Bitterness holds us back so promote kindness💓

When talking about kindness, we're usually referring to how we should treat others. Kindness creates a sense of safety in our relationships. It lets others know that we respect them and that we will be thoughtful in how we communicate with them.⠀ -⠀ Now, if only we could apply the "kindness" concept to ourselves! There are many ways to turn kindness inward. ⠀ -⠀ You can start by listening to how you talk to yourself, and how you talk about yourself to others. Are you patient with yourself? Do you hold yourself to an unrealistic standard and then feel defeated? Do you treat others in the manner that you would like to be treated? Do you take time to replenish your overused mind or body? Is self-care in your vocabulary? (If not, start learning all about it asap!)⠀ -⠀ As a young girl and well into my college years, I used to be super hard on myself. I was my biggest critic. The negative, insecure self-talk popped up pretty regularly. I was definitely not kind to myself and it affected my self-esteem big time. At some point in my 20's, I said enough was enough and decided to make a change. I didn't want to be the one cutting myself down anymore, I needed to become a friend to myself, not a critic. Fortunately, I was able to do it on my own, but if I needed to, I would've sought professional help at the time.⠀ -⠀ Since then, I've been very conscious of being nice and patient with myself. I try to have a positive mindset, even when times are tough. Most importantly, I express gratitude every day as I think it helps keep me in check. I also make an effort to be kind to others and try to do the right thing daily. ⠀ -⠀ In terms of self-care, one of my favorite things to do is go for a walk to clear my mind or workout at the gym. What do you do for self-care? Are you kind to yourself? I sure hope so! Let's start a kindness turned inward campaign!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #therelationshipprotocol #therpmodel #bekind #selfcare #bekindtoyourself #worklifebalance #kindnessmatters #care #caring #positivity #kindessmatters #amazon #author #psychologist #selfcareeveryday
🌸 indian quote🌸
Be still my heart. She was nominated by her class. 💗❤️🌈☀️#caring #kindessmatters
I love this quote, and as i read it, I thought about how important it is to absorb both sides of this - how you treat others, and how others treat you. The power of these acts of kindness is more than we realize. For me, having mental health issues and a super sensitive nature, kind words and caring acts make a huge impact. You never know what someone is going through, they could be silently suffering, or even on the verge of taking their own life. The smallest act of caring could truly make a difference. I’m going to try harder to not only do these things for others, but to notice every act of kindness someone shows me.

Smudgecake did wonderfully this time thanks to a new concoction of sedative! He not only has extra toes, but suffers from more hoof problems than the average piggo. Natalie and her awesome assistant, Julie, took extra good care of him! #blackberrycreek #piglovers #sanctuary #friendnotfood #smudgie #piggopals #pigstagram #veganforhim #vetsrule #veterinarian #sanctuarylife #pigsofinstagram #kindessmatters #pigs #hooftrimming
Kindness... It's Priceless! . #worldkindnessday2018
Today, oh gosh today as a ER nurse wow was it a bad day. All the feels. I had a patient remind me of my brother 💜 I had some really sick patients, we experienced loss and grief today along with joy but we were busy it was just a day when I look at the clock and say “thank you Jesus you got me through the day.” But even on the tough days, be kind! . . . . #kindessmatters #baddays #toughdays #bekind #longharddays #ernurse #workflow #worklifebalance #nurse

I’m today’s host for #bethelight2018 Advent Acts of Kindness hosted by the amazing Chelsea @bushelandbobbin. I chose sponsor a child/family for several reasons! 1st we do it every year in some manner and 2nd because as a Christian we are commanded to do so. This year I took my girls to our local @walmart and we picked 2 names off the @salvationarmyus Angel tree. I let my girls (15 &11) pick out everything. It is truly better to give than to receive... On a sad note our Angel Tree inside Wal-Mart in Findlay, OH😭was stole on Sunday...it is so sad that some kids won’t get their Christmas wishes filled... tomorrow’s #actsofkindness2018 is hosted by @heart_by_cc #kindessmatters #spreadingchristmascheer #spreadinggodslove #jesusisthereasonfortheseason #loveofchrist
So this was amazing!!! I was at @lushcosmetics and not only did they let my kids try out the bubbles and bombs while I looked around. But we also talked about the bath oils that I love but have a sensitivity issue with. Unfortunately... because they smell amazing! Then ish hit the fan because I have cranky overtired kids - I paid (a small fortune lol because it's as bad as Target lol) and on my way out Tristan hands me this!! This is so nice! I will always be back for more just at that store and such a small gesture - it didn't need to happen but it did and meant more than anything! Going to use it now! #lush #lushcosmetics #kidness #tristanisthebest #lushsurprise #kindessmatters #thanks
Forgiveness is the work of the strong. It’s benefits are as much for you as they are for anyone else. It’s freedom. ⁣ ⁣ A long time ago a friend taught me that when I was really, really hurt with someone to picture them in my mind and say, “So and so, I let you go in peace”. Say it again and again until one day you realize that you actually have. I’ve had to say it more often than I wish over the past few years but my desire is to be free from the burden of bitterness. ⁣ ⁣ Try it. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #mindfulness #mindlessbehavior #peace #growthmindset #compassion #injesusname #loveyourneighbor #everyneighbor #lovemercy #dogood #ghandi #practicewhatyoupreach #kindessmatters #momsofinstagram #momlife #canigetanamen ⁣ ⁣
