Day’s 11 & 12 – Kindness & Sunshine

from Wendy’s Written Words

One of my mottoes is to always remember the kindness of others and I have often spoken about it to my family.

Saturday: I had to post a large envelope with a statutory declaration in it, and decided to drop into our local post office. The postmistress often has a quick chat and is a lovely lady. Saturday morning was no exception!

She mentioned seeing me dropping off a young relative to school in the mornings and said that her son had been his buddy and mentor when he first started kindergarten. It was wonderful learning that we had this connection.

What will people think?” So as you can see, I was trained at an early age to second guess what others might think and portray a spotless image of myself. Being vulnerable, showing weakness or needs was simply not an option. Apparently. Though I’m sure the irony isn’t lost on you!

This audio is inspired in part by that story. I’m going to talk about the counter-intuitive idea that making ourselves vulnerable can help us to achieve what we want—whether it’s about improving a relationship, our work goals, or a hobby or sport.
