November 16--Just Do It

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention. 
--Oscar Wilde 

    I suspect we all think of considerably more acts of kindness than we actually perform. Calling a friend, writing a note, running an errand, delivering flowers--easy acts that get away from us due to time constraints or procrastination. It is helpful to recall how good it felt to actually do an act of kindness, hopefully inspiring us to do more. 
    Let us not neglect acts of kindness toward ourselves. Certainly here we can have grand intentions, but it is so easy to let others' needs come before our own. Kind acts toward ourselves are nourishing, filling our own cup, so to speak. When we are full, kindness overflows. An empty cup has nothing to share. It is a worthy goal to be as kind to ourselves as we are to our best friend. 
    Have an excellent week, dear readers!
