I’ve had a really tough week and MrHOF very kindly took the HOFlets swimming this morning so I had a bit more extra time for soberverse browsing. While I was dipping in and out of sober communities I spotted this December kindness advent calendar that someone on Soberistas had shared and I thought ‘how lovely’.
When we’re stuck in the ‘pity party for one’ space it can be all get a bit me me me – well that’s my perception anyway! 😉 Sometimes focusing on something or someone other than ourselves can be really emotionally beneficial and this is the perfect way to do that. So I’m going to be consulting this every day from now until Xmas too as a way of warding off those potential ‘woe is me’ moments.
I also found this on the wonderful interwebs at 12 kinds of kindness:
So as December 1 asks on the Kindness Advent Calendar I have shared this with you to encourage others to practice kindness this month. As the calendar says in a final quote from Lao Tzu:
Kindness in words creates confidence
Kindness in thinking creates profoundness
Kindness in giving creates love
Thank you to the kind Soberistas who shared this and therefore allowed me to share it too 🙂
