Be Kind

Well hello there!

I haven't written anything for quite a while because I've been dealing with some things. I've also had some writers block which makes producing quality posts very hard. I was going to make this post about suicide and depression but I think I'm going to wait a little bit to post that, especially since Robin Williams is so fresh in people's minds. I feel like it would be almost invasive to write something right now, so look out for that post sometime next week because I will post it.

If you follow me on any kind of social media (links at the top/shameless self promotion) you will know that today I got a tattoo! It is on my left forearm just under my elbow crease. This is lucky tattoo #7 and it brings me immense joy to have this on my skin.


I recently came across a couple of pictures from the Purple Buddha Project that really spoke to me. One of them says "Kindness is my religion." Personally this has really changed my outlook on everything. This quote makes sense to me because being kind is always who I've been. There was another picture that had the quote "This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; this philosophy is kindness." This is the ultimate understanding of who I am. I believe in myself and I believe that putting all of my faith in me to achieve what I want is much more sufficient than putting it in the fate of someone else's hands. The kindness aspect of this plays a vital role in my life. I've always put being kind first because I have always believed that it will get me farther in life than if I weren't to be kind. I also believe that being kind is what humans were made to be. Can you imagine what the world would be like if everyone was kind? I think it would be beautiful.

It's a pretty self explanatory tattoo. There's a quote that says "be kind for everyone you meet is facing a battle." This represents that along with Ellen's famous "be kind to one another" and also just a general, "be kind to yourself" mantra. 

In my words; just be kind.
