Recently, as a guest on Stevie Mack’s radio show I briefly spoke about being grateful & “the kindness of strangers.” I started to reminisce re a number of years ago when I was experiencing extreme emotional and physical challenges. ( read more about that http://www.balanceandpower.com/meeteileen.php). I didn’t know about EFT then- I surely would’ve helped myself more and faster. I recall what amazed me was that when I was doing simple errands people often “bent over backwards” – a gas station attendant, for instance, and did extra little things to help. And there were a few instances when much bigger kindnesses were turned in my direction. I would journal about them, and express gratitude. In hindsight, I’m also grateful that I was “open” to receive what was being given- and realize that perhaps I was given what I asking for- even if I had not verbalized it. We all need to reach out more and to be open, receptive and grateful. On a scale of 1-10( 10 being highest), how do you rate :
- Kindness to strangers- how often to you notice yourself reaching out to a stranger?
- Being grateful
- Expressing gratitude
- Being open to kindnesses directed at you
