Week 16. Absorbed in kindness

What does kindness really mean? Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern and care. While kindness has a connotation of meaning someone is weak, that is not the case. Being kind often requires courage and strength.

This week we focused on kindness as a whole group for our Franklin Makeover assignment. In the beginning of the week, I was challenged at first to find kindness at work and when day 2 come around I knew I had to dig deeper. One thing I have learnt this week is how important the little things are. We over look little acts of kindness all the time and when we focus on these little acts more deliberately we practice gratitude and give our hearts reason to grow.

Everyone has been encouraged to share their kindnesses in the alliance area this week. I thoroughly enjoyed this extra task because it gave me the opportunity to learn about other peoples positive experiences and connect with the entire MKE group. Kindness is a strength that is contagious. When we focus on kindness, and when we focus on making a positive impact, we are less stressed in our own lives. Kindness shows hope, kindness shows care, and it helps others to see the good in life. Everybody could use a little more good in life.

My favorite part of kindness week is sharing our task with my friends and family. I have enjoyed concentrating to see the positive in others and I enjoyed encouraging others to do the same even more! Seeing kindness everywhere is a gift that I am so grateful to be more conscious of and if there’s one thing I like more than a gift, its giving.
