This past Monday I started the 30 day kindness challenge. In this challenge you choose someone that you will make the focus of those 30 days. Once you pick someone you make a point not to say anything negative about this person, to find something positive that you can praise them on, and to do one act of kindness for this person throughout the month.
I personally have gotten off to a slow start, and have not done great on the second and third parts of the challenge. I have been less negative about the person I chose, and have seen an improvement in our relationship. I really enjoy spending time with this person and I look forward to it. I am even seeing this person in a more positive light. Throughout the week I have noticed that it is easier to not jump to negative things about this person.
After doing this challenge for a week I noticed that there was one other person who came to mind. I refer to him as Mchotjerk, and have decided to aim this challenge toward him. Let me quickly mention that the name Mchotjerk stems from an inside joke with a friend! The first thing I am making an effort to stop calling him Mchotjerk. I am looking forward to seeing how my opinions of this person will change.
The 30 day kindness challenge is really a great thing to do. I believe it came out at a great time, a time when everyone should be showing each other a little more kindness. If any of you want the link to sign up for this challenge leave a comment or message me, and I will be glad to give it to you!
