Woke up this morning,
somewhere in between excitement and anxiety.
It is Monday and with that
a new week of opportunities,
a new risk of failing.
A word slowly emerges from deep within
like the sun from behind the horizon,
first gentle and warm then increasing its light:
This is what I wish for this week.
my inner child,
the people around me,
the earth on which I walk,
the air I breathe,
the food I eat.
the thoughts I think,
the words I speak,
the actions I take.
I wish there was more Kindness in the world.
This week I am going to do something about that.
This week I am going to be kinder.
