Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Trying Harder...


--by kiwicat, posted Aug 2, 2015
I'm trying really hard to 'be present' and putting my phone away and ipad away. I'm limiting my time on FB (and had a lovely comment from my son this afternoon, "Mum are you there? if you are not there, where are you?") which shows I spent too much time there, if that's their first stop to find me! My second thing on a different vein is when school goes back, no gossiping, which for me isn't saying it, its listening to it. I've got some strategies (changing the subject, walking out, and saying I'm not comfortable talking about the person when they are not there) I want my workplace to be one of kindness and I'm starting with myself.

I know more and more people who don't gossip and less and less who do when I come across someone who wants to gossip its quite nauseating....... if people talk about others just ask 'and how does that make you feel'.........because people want to act as though they are innocent in this asking them how they fit into this gossip usually shuts them up.............alternatively ignore it and start up a conversation about something else.......make it something boring so they get the message and stand by someone else outside school tomorrow. They are sad really living their lives through others..........x
