#WorldKindnessDay reminding us that we must be kind 💕 to one another, and spread love ❤️ constantly to fight 🥊 the negativity 🙅🏼♀️ in this 🌎 world •
All this got me thinking 💭 about how we talk to 🗣 and treat ourselves 🙍🏼♀️. The constant loop ➰ of negative thoughts that go around in our heads 🧠... maybe thinking 🤔 that we could do better 🤦🏼♀️, could work harder or faster 🙎🏼♀️, could be thinner or more fit or stronger🏃🏼♀️, that we aren’t enough 🤷🏼♀️, won’t find the success we want in our career 👩🏼💻, won’t attain the relationships we desire, either personal 👤, familial 👨👩👧👦, professional 👥 or romantic❣️... •
We all have those thoughts 😔, maybe some more than others. At some point 📍 everyday, we don’t live 🆙 to our expectations, or things don’t go how we thought 💬 they should.... This triggers 🔫 this loop ♻️ and those thoughts come a 🌪 creeping •
It’s 🆗 when that happens, but when it does, we have to remember 💆🏼♀️ to be KIND to ourselves. Take away ❎ the could haves, should haves, would haves and what ifs. Take away your expectations 📝 and accept what is and where you are, with love ♥️. We are all doing our best ✨, but maybe we if we are kinder 🥰 to ourselves , we will be kinder to each other. 📷 @davidsyw1 .
