Full disclosure: In my attempt to help YOU find your strong & kind, I lost mine.
I get sucked into serving others... Sigh. This is why I call myself a "recovering" people-pleaser.
But - the ONLY way to be strong & kind with others is to be first strong & kind to yourself.
What does that mean for me? My strong (my boundaries) that lead me to be ABLE to be kind are: sleep, nature, exercise, time with friends and quiet.
When I don't do those things - I get sick, I get grumpy, I get stretched AND I say "yes" to everyone else's needs (and am blind to my own).
You guessed it - ALL those things have been going on lately!
So today, after a good night's sleep (finally!), it snowed (finally!) and I went for a run, in nature, with calm music on.
Back on the horse.
The root of your strong & kind is you. If you can't find YOU, you can't be strong & kind. It's that simple, and, that complicated - all at once!
