This week was a focus on kindness. It’s interesting that when we consciously focus on something we see more of it. And not only see more of it, but do more of it and become more of it. As I looked for kindness this week, I actually began to appreciate others more. I wasn’t looking for kindness directed at me, although that was part of my experience, I was looking for kindness being expressed to others by others; something I don’t think I’ve ever taken the time to look for. What I found was that kindness IS truly all around us. We just have to look for it. In looking for it, I was also much more conscious of it and looked for ways to be kind.
Where focus goes energy flows so why not put your focus on the good things. Change your focus, Change your life!
I love this verse from the Bible because it sums this post up better than I ever could and it is a great daily reminder to me of what I am called to focus on:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
