The Art of Connecting
What the world needs now is more kindness, compassion and connection.
How do we make this a reality?
Well, that's up to you and me.
That's right, we each have a responsibility to be a part of the change we wish to see in the world. And I am here to propose a plan. Because without a plan some of us may feel insignificant, hopeless and frustrated with the state of the world right now.
Since the opposite of hate is indifference, we must take action. Indifference is the absence of feeling or interest. When we begin to feel something, such as fear and frustration, we must use those emotions as a catalyst to create change.
So here's my plan
- Give of yourself in service. Volunteer. Do something positive for someone else. Drop some kindness rocks, hold a door, donate some clothes, anything that benefits another human being. This will help shift any negativity you have and you will begin to feel better.
2. Heal the relationship with yourself. Heighten your awareness around your feelings and begin to explore where they are coming from. Turn any negativity into a positive agent for change. Get curious! Begin to ask yourself the question, 'What is my purpose here"
3. Expand your awareness around how you connect and interact with others around you. Bring peace and kindness into your home, your community and ultimately the world. Surround yourself with like minded positive people (find your tribe) and together you will serve as a a model for others to admire and follow. Kindness is contagious!
