Episode 59 - A Little Kindness, Please

Update: 2021-11-08


The 3rd facet to the tenet of Present is kindness and openness.  Kindness and openness are the bedrock of being present.

You've got to try a little kindness
Yes, show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you'll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets - Glen Campbell

Does this sound naïve?  Trite?  Let’s look at the concept of kindness today.

Intentional Optimism - Your Vehicle for Personal Growth:

  1. Optimistic = hope and a future
  2. Present - wonder, generosity, kind / open
  3. Energetic - industry, excitement, life focused
  4. Courageous - leader, adventurous, undaunted
  5. Wise - words, respect
  6. Intentional - plan, purposeful, good finances

Topics discussed in this episode: 

Kindness / Openness: 

  1. Emotions: I will feel what is happening NOW. I don't run from my feelings. They tell me things I need to know.
  2. Non-judgement: Every human is created in the Image of God, worthy of kindness, grace, respect and saving.
  3. Poor/Disenfranchised: I open my heart and hands to those in need. I have enough to share.

Ask yourself :

  1. What are YOUR heart attitudes regarding kindness and openness?
  2. What emotions does it stir up?
  3. Where is judgement showing up for you?
