Focus on…Kindness

And welcome back to another episode of “Nicole cannot focus on one thing no matter how hard she tries.” Wow, I bet some scientist somewhere would have a field day with me these last few days. I have a million light bulbs going off at once, so many that I cannot even fathom what they are. If they ever filter down to my conscious mind, maybe I’ll be another Nikola Tesla.

The one thing that I would like to focus on today, though, is kindness. In the past few weeks I have witnessed so many who are so hung up on arguing their point, on making themselves right and another wrong, that they have forgotten to be kind. Yes, forgotten. I am certain that most of the people in the world are not intentionally mean to others. Nope, they just forget to be kind in the midst of whatever it is they are trying to do.

I promise you that I can argue with you in a nice way, provide some facts and then agree to disagree. All without calling you names, belittling you, or out right telling you how uninformed and stupid you are. But I can also do just the opposite. If you’ve ever been questioned in court, you know how that feels, yet we do it to each other across the world every day. Instead of the high road, we get on the high horse. It feels good for a minute while we slam dunk into the basket of self-righteousness doesn’t it! Yeah! But then, you hit a lower than low, if you have any emotion at all, when you realize what you have done to your opponent.

Well, that is how it makes me feel. Many years ago I was a different Nicole. I was an ass. A smart ass…I mean intelligent ass (and a smart ass too), and I could crush you in an argument with facts and figures, and psychologically too. I am not proud of that, and I have lost my knack because it feels awful to make others feel that way. In fact it’s very distasteful to me to beat people down for any reason at all. Right or wrong doesn’t matter.

On that note, I don’t need to be right anymore. What you think doesn’t affect my life at all. What I think/know/believe is for me to deal with and expand on each and every day. Should I ever think I have all of the answers, I will only be showing my ignorance. Deep stuff eh? My truth, doesn’t have to be yours.

It costs us nothing to be kind. And I promise that it feels good. Try it out once today, for me or in honor of someone you love.

All of this said, I will step up if someone else is being mistreated and try to stop it. Then things might get ugly. I will probably apologize to you later even if my words or behavior was warranted. It’s the kind thing to do.

My guides/team asked me to focus on focusing, and since it seems this topic has kept my focus, I guess I’m on the right track! Have a kind and love filled day good people of the world! Namaste and always #missingerin <3

    I had to laugh at your focus comments. I have thought alot about that lately, since that seems to be a major issue for me… and yes, we all have the ability to make others feel small, but oh wouldn’t it be nice if everyone practiced kindness at least once in every interaction with another soul, since the would is full of walking wounded….

    I heard a quote that “people act on the outside the way they feel on the inside”. You COULD be the one to help them through a very shitty day by being kind. I try to remember and be, sincerely, kind.
