Welcome to my first blog post! I'm excited to get this series started and share content all about finding the light + the positives in challenging times.
Once you get to know me a bit, you will realise that I love a motivational quote and a true cliche! If you are following on Instagram you may have already seen this but there will be more along the way #sorrynotsorry
One of my favourite quotes is from the movie Cinderella...
Have Courage And Be Kind
We all need the courage to get through the challenges in life, but we also need it to follow our dreams.
We need the courage to live with integrity and to know when to walk away from situations or people that aren't good.
We need the courage to love and appreciate others, to forgive and to support.
As Brene Brown says 'Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them'
Courage is something you must develop within yourself. Kindness is something that we can give out to others. Let’s be honest, we could all do with more kindness in our lives.
Spreading Courage And Kindness
The great thing is, we can be kinder to ourselves, to each other and to strangers we pass on the street. Kindness costs nothing to give but can have such an impact. A simple smile can make someone's day.
You can never be sure of the battles that others are fighting behind closed doors. Kindness is a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there is love to be found in this world.
An act of kindness does not need to be a huge action; it can simply be saying hello, checking in with a friend, making someone a tea or coffee, helping someone carry a box if they look like they are struggling, making extra for dinner and dropping it over to a friend or relative in need.
Have the courage and be kind. Where there is kindness there is goodness, and where there is goodness there is magic (Cinderella).
