I had a big realization today.
I felt a joy inside of me today. The joy came from me being kind to people I love. I love how I talk to my nephews, how I encourage Jaden, how I let him know that he is the best violinist, that I am so proud of him, how I tell Danny what is happening when he is not around, hahaha…
I realized that it didn’t come from people being kind to me. And I remembered times when people were “trying” to be kind to me, I didn’t even notice it, and when I did, I couldn’t even take it in.
The bottom line is:
I love me when I am kind to you.
I love me when I am kind to myself.
