This post is a little old and I didn’t realise I hadn’t shared it but it is still applicable so here we go………
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you are having a good one. Isn’t it great to be alive.
Recently we did some work in the garden setting up our fire pit so we could sit around it & talk about memories we have during our lives, so we can learn from each other & our kids can learn about their parent’s lives.
My husband and I decided we would share with our kids something that we would like to release from our lives so we can look at it head on & see it for what it is, how it isn’t serving us & then let it burn up in the fire.
This is the first time we have ever done anything like this with our kids & I was so excited that they were happy to join in. Because my hubby & I are both only just starting our life discovery we are trying oh so hard to let our kids know that things could be a little rocky at times, but everything is going to work out ok & we are trying to take things as slow as we can (because believe me it’s happening fast).
So gentleness is one word that is in my head quite often. I need to remember to be gentle to me, be gentle with the ones I love & that are living through what I am experiencing & coming along on the ride in their own way. I know that personal journeys are personal & from within, but our journeys seems to be overflowing into our lives so we are working with what we can, sharing what we can & reassuring when needed. I also like to think about being gentle to those I don’t know.
Since starting this journey, I see people in a different light. It is a light of love and acceptance & it is so refreshing. It is such a nice feeling to see someone who may be have treated you badly but instead of thinking they’re horrible, or nasty or uptight, I can now see that they have their own demons they are dealing with. I have no idea what they are experiencing or feeling. So the best thing I can do for them to be gentle. It could turn their day around.
Next time you see someone who is not finding life easy, or trying to learn something new, or you make a decision that could have been different, Go Gently because when you go gently it can change not only your outlook, but also those that are around you.
