I had no intention of writing a one word post. I mean, I already wrote about how I feel about the New Year, and I don't think I could be any more clear that what I am looking for is peace and purpose. So I was done, and I was ready to go about the business of living the new year without any more ado.
But my words had different ideas.
Every time I read a one word post from someone else, and tried to comment on it, I heard one thing in the back of my head.
And then finally one day, "Kindness, DUMMY."
Oh. (Although you're kind of missing the point there, self.)
I've been searching for purpose, searching everywhere except apparently my own brain and heart. There is little doubt in my mind now that kindness is my purpose.
And so 2012 will be the year of kindness. Kindness in all things, no matter how small they may be. Because in the end, that's all that truly matters.
And maybe, just maybe if I'm brave enough, kindness to myself.
