Last week we embarked on a virtue journey, the idea came from Benjamin Franklin who he himself embarked on a year journey of his negative virtues. Each month he would pick a virtue and see the negative in it. Well since we are instilling our selves with positive mental attitude on a daily basis. Mark decided to reverse it so each week we will put a virtue that we need improvement on and search for it in our surroundings. It could be on tv, something you saw or read and what you did as well. We had to mark it with a dot each time we recognized it. The first week I picked persistent and I didn’t notice much it could have been there but I was not that aware of it. I was persistent in my health and drinking my water but I had a hard time seeing it. The second week we all had to look for kindness and we also had to do 2 acts of kindness that no one saw and than we had to comment daily in our alliance master mind and if as group we had 8,000 comments by Saturday Mark was going to go out and give 400 free hugs.
Kindness is all around me and I didn’t even notice
It’s crazy before doing this I never realized that picking up liter from my neighbors house or bringing up there bins or holding the door for someone behind me was considered an act of kindness. I just considered it common courtesy. This week opened up my eyes to see it all around me especially in the mastermind alliance. I even watched the last 10 min of world news because in the end they always do a story about something good and positive and its usually a kindness. I enjoyed and appreciated my self more. Especially when I became aware of what I usually do, without even thinking about it are acts of kindness. I loved the looks of surprise on people’s faces when they received the kindnesses from me. This week has also help me remind me not to get bent out of shape for not thanking me with a wave for letting you out on to traffic. I have definitely gotten better since MKE but the kindness week has had a major improvement on that for me. I am now not only looking for my last week’s virtue but I’m still seeing and hearing acts of kindness. It seems I’m cloaked in it and I am now changed for the better. Thanks Mark and Davene I can’t express how grateful I am for helping me bring more awareness in my life that are postive.
P.S we did meet Mark’s challenge and yes he keep his promise and hugged 400 people. Awesome sauce.
