On Kindness and Being Small

personaljacqueline horningComment

It's been a good fall for thinking.  And inspiration.    

I've been thinking about what it means to parent with kindness.  And what it looks like to work with heart and purpose (here's one way).   

Or realizing the tension between embracing the smallness of one life versus the perceived masses of social media.  I stumbled upon this podcast (episode 10) around the same time and am still happy for the timing of it all.

It was a good reminder to be present in my own life.  I'm not striving to live for the masses but instead to be here with the people that I know and love - this wise woman calls it smallness.  Sometimes that means engaging with that little ponytail, celebrating birthdays of folks worth celebrating, early morning coffee dates... or meal prep in the kitchen (again) because it's time for another meal and, thankfully, there is food to eat I have able hands.  Simple, right?  What do you think?  

What's been on your mind?  Where do you go for inspiration?  xo
