Mindful Smack – Sweetness!

Instead of just being sweet to the folks we most want to impress, let’s cultivate sweetness, for everyone and every circumstance, together. Even when we have to be firm and clear, may we find sweetness in our communications both internally and externally.

I find I’m great when I’m doing what I “want” to be doing, and not at all sweet when I’m feeling confronted or weak. Specifically cultivating sweetness regardless of context or content actually makes us softer, more receptive and more able to learn and heal. Start by noting the sweetness around you, in acts, words, gestures. Begin to incorporate these observations and see how it makes you feel to be more kind, to bring more sweetness.

Warning: you might love who you are when you’re cultivating sweetness…

    So true and spot on. So easy to be sweet to strangers, harder to be sweet to those you love. Shift to both. 
    Love and gratitude to you!
