Pay Attention To Kindness

I am never so aware of my own negativity bias as when I’m trying to do one of these all-day exercises. I know that kindness happens all around me, but it’s surprising how much effort it takes to notice it. Noticing irritants, on the other hand, is automatic.

Some recent kindnesses:

  • My sons took a moment this morning (before rushing out to their computers) to give me a hug and connect.
  • The whole family (even the two-year-old) pitched in with cleaning the kitchen.
  • A stranger held a door for me while I was struggling with a large bag of books.

Happy Thursday!
