Hi Kind Reader, I realize it’s been a minute… For the past seven months, I’ve lived the life of an “intentional gypsy.” By that I mean, I’ve been living in the moment. Each day I wake up with the intention to “go kindly” through every instant by being present to a purpose bigger than me. You might say that I’m being in a Go Kindly relationship with myself.
My journey took me across cities near and far, into and out of various airbnbs, my parents’ guest room, friends’ sofas, and even one memorable night inside of my car. The new friendships and expanded professional networks formed along my trek produced incredible business and personal opportunities to practice Go Kindly in-action.
Responding in “kind” entailed me creating space for an outcome that is bigger than me. By meeting a situation or an individual, including myself, with a mindset of kindness, I released an investment in a specific result unfolding.
We all have preferences. There is nothing inherently wrong with wanting something specific to occur. Disappointment and resentment develop however when what “is” deviates from what we hoped would “be.” Allow me kind reader to share an example with you to illustrate my point.
What important choices have you made that reveal your perception of the value of your self-worth? Are there any insights gained from this post that could help you to look at your future options differently prior to making a pivotal career decision?
