I kept thinking Random Acts of Kindness had already been done. Don’t we know the lesson on kindness already? Besides, I needed kindness. That was the lesson. Kindness comes from me because I am a kind person. I have to feel and know kindness with in me to spread kindness to others. And really? If I can’t control others to show kindness to me … but if I can control myself? Then I show kindness to myself.
Of course all this is done without being selfish.
So the big practice for me that day was that kindness includes me, NOT instead of me.
