Hi! I hope you’re having a beautiful day 💕 GUESS WHAT! I have a new doodle series I’m going to be sharing for February! 😄🌺
Starting today and finishing on Valentine’s Day (the 14th), I’ll be publishing one kindness doodle every day! You’ll get to read an inspiring quote and check out the day’s doodle. Then I’ll be answering some kindness prompts my mom provided for me (I can’t wait to answer them!) and a very special guest will share how you can incorporate kindness into your own life! For each day’s finale, you’ll have the opportunity to share your thoughts on the day’s topic with some outro question/s.
Maybe I should have started with this lol, but D @ Random Specific Thoughts came up with the name for this series: “doodling the kind way”! Thanks so much for your help, D, and for sharing your creative ideas with me!
Let’s get right into day one!
“Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin
🌺 We all have different opinions about things, and sometimes, others’ opinions upset us. Why is it important to be constructive and kind when considering someone else’s opinion?
How each of us views and understands the world is a combination of many factors. This includes who raised us, where we grew up, what we were taught, what we see in the media and entertainment, and who our friends are. The beliefs, opinions, and truths we stand behind are uniquely ours, and they all exist for a reason. It’s important for us to acknowledge that just because we see something a certain way, it does not mean everyone else must or will see it that way, as well.
When someone believes something that conflicts with my own opinion, I will do my best to see the situation from their perspective. This helps me to be kind and understanding toward them, because I appreciate it when others do the same for me!
While I may not agree with someone on a particular matter or viewpoint, I respect them as an individual and value our relationship on the grounds of what we do have in common.
introducing: Captain Kindness!
Hello all! I am Captain Catrina Kindness,
but you can call me that!
😉 Just kidding.
I go by my full title, but you can
also call me Catrina!
I am very very honored to be a special guest here for this wonderfully inspiring doodle series! Thank you to Maggie for having me, and a HUGE thank you to Maggie’s friend blogger D (Random Specific Thoughts) for recommending me!
Kindness is one of my favorite things about life. That’s why I feel so special getting to be called Captain Kindness! What a privilege!
Anyway, enough about me. 😁 It’s time to share kindness inspiration with you.
