I am a good girl. I like rules. I thrive under positive reinforcement. I was born for legalism.
I've talked about how easy it is for me to slip into a Christian competition, even with myself. How I tend to lean on my actions. How much of a good girl I am. And how I've been throwing it all away lately.
Each time I choose to be instead of do, I see a clear lesson: kindness.
Kindness towards others.
Each time I pass on the chance to judge. To preach. To lecture. To roll my eyes. To speak my mind. To act all frumpy and pick a fight. Kindness.
Kindness towards myself.
Each time I let go of expectations. Of guilt. Of blame. Of feeling self-entitled. Of the need for perfection. Kindness.
