Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~Mark Twain
Ever feel like you're on the right path, trying to be the best possible version of yourself, trying to live a life of love & joy but then you stumble. I stumbled. I feel like a failure as a friend & I feel like the earth is swallowing me up. Because that is not who I want to be. I don't want to be someone who disappoints. I know – I'm human & in this human-ness I will disappoint, I will fail. And I know I need to let go of the worry & anxiety & just jump back on the path of living a life of love. I need to learn to be Ok with me – failures & all. And I think I am… as long as I continue to learn from these lessons & grow. I'm hoping to continue to grow into the best version of me & have more of that love shine through me giving others hope & spreading joy just by being.
I pledge to continue to speak the language of kindness. And I pledge not to beat myself up when I stumble – but rather to pick myself back up & work harder to be love; to be joy.
