Share The Joy with Encouragement
Kindness is something that I really try to embed into my every day life. And also into our 7 year old’s daily life (not forgetting hubby too!). We’re only human and so some days take more effort, more thinking about. But I’ve been following The Kindness Calendar from MakeTodayHappy and this week, my act of kindness that stood out was…
‘gently encourage someone’
Our daughter has started to learn the violin and practices daily. I posted on instagram that it has become a ‘good habit’ (we’ve managed 10 minutes before school twice already… go me/us!)
~A GOOD HABIT~ I’m not sure how we managed it but we did! 10 molinutes of violin practice before we left for school! A little every day is a good habit to get into and she’s living it! And yesterday we had a guitar jam too 🎻🎵🎸🎶 #HighlightsofHappy #MyHappyCapture #LifeCloseUp #TheMagicinEveryday #MakeMeSmile #Happy #HappinessEverywhere #CapturingtheDay #CaptureMyPositive #livingfearlesslyauthentic #ukbloggerlife #thisparentlife #rockingmummylife #dailyparenting #thehappynow #pblogger #wanderwetwipesphotochallenge #music #violin #goodhabit #practice
One day, when she was a little tired, she said the chin rest wasn’t comfy. And so I said she’d done 5 minutes, that I would write that in her book and she didn’t need to do any more today but if she wanted to, she could. As I thought, she wanted to get to 10 minutes and persevered…
Yes, a little, subtle encouragement goes a long, long way! As does unsubtle encouragement which of course I gave in bucket loads too!
Are you following any sort of ‘kindness’ calendar? Have you done something to encourage someone this week? I’d love to hear. Please do leave a comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere.
