Fil from http://fil-campbell.blogspot.co.uk Fil Place
is a blogger I met many moons ago, during my first A-Z Challenge, so I was interested to learn about another challenge she was participating in called the Kindness Challenge.
Having read Fil's post I hopped over to Niki's blog to read more about the challenge (you can too by clicking on the button above) and decided that it was something I should at least have a go at and maybe learn a little more about myself in the process.
My first task is to set myself an intention to work towards over the next seven weeks. This has really got me thinking because I'm not sure how kind a person I am? I try to be helpful. I like to be friendly. I like making those around me happy but none of this is really about being kind.
When I was a teacher in primary school I felt there were many ways in which to be kind and to teach children to be kind to each other but now I'm not so sure of how I behave when I'm NOT with young children. So maybe my intention should be to find out more about what kindness really is and by following the weekly prompts find out if I am a kind person or whether things about me really need to change so that I can be a kinder person in my everyday life. I think it's going to be an interesting time for me with a few home truths! But one thing I am sure of is, if we all were a little kinder then this world would be a better place so there is no better intention than that :)
Each week there will be a theme prompt and exercise and then we can review things after a week to see how it all went for us although as Niki says we can all take things at our own pace so it doesn't necessarily have to be posted weekly.
Looking at the linky list I noticed a number of bloggers I feel I have a connection with already so it's nice to know I'll be among friends :)
If you haven't signed up but would like to you join in and maybe discover some new things about yourself as well as make the world a better place then please join the linky list over at: https://therichnessofasimplelife.wordpress.com
Hope to see some of you there and looking forward to our weekly reviews :)
