Yes, RAK week took 2 weeks for our little family. Luckily it is never too late to be kind. This last post is about being kind to the earth and yourself.
Last weekend was unseasonably warm outside so Michael and I took a garbage bag outside and walked along the creek that borders our property and we collected trash and recycles that blew into the brush along the creek. We live in a ridiculously windy neighborhood and rogue recycles end up caught along the creek. We ended up with a whole bag full of trash.
Lastly, I’m starting to realize it is OK to be kind to yourself and it doesn’t mean you’re selfish. I’ve been interested in the psychology of happiness and why some people are just Debbie Downers while others are more optimistic. And I’ve learned that acts of kindness make the giver a happier person in general. While I don’t have time to enroll in college courses on the matter of happiness, I can read about it on my own at home.
I also ordered a book called How To Live a Good Life. Bob laughed at me and estimates that it will take approximately 2 years for me to read these books. He’s probably right as I’m only on page 3 of an intro so far. But still, it is time for me to learn about something that interests me.
Be kind to each other. Be kind to the earth. Be kind to yourself.
