“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” –Lao Tzu
What does LOVING mean?
The definition of LOVING is feeling a deep affection and/or showing love or great care.
Being LOVING is something we all naturally were born to do, it is why we long to love and be loved. Love is a gift that is not always easy to share and as you begin Day 12 of our KINDolutions challenge, being LOVING will play a BIG PART in how you participate.
To love or not to love is a question that rolls through our minds and directs all our actions. Love is what makes the world go around or makes it stop, and as natural as love is, it can be the hardest thing to understand. Now, more than ever, love is needed amongst all people, showing one another that we care greatly is what will keep families and friendships together, and heal many of the hurtful things we have all experienced. Love is the most underestimated power we have as human beings and if we could all realize its power we could all be the love that we want to see and experience in our lifetime. Being loving will get us through tough times, will help us forgive, create new lifelong relationships, and help us heal from past pain. When we can recognize the love in ourselves we can see it in others and most of all we can BE THE LOVE WE WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
At www.idareu2bee.com we believe that the first loving relationship we need to have is with ourselves. There is a saying: “Hurt people, hurt people.” When we value and love ourselves, we can value and love others. We know you may have a whole bunch of reasons why loving yourself is not always easy, yet we promise you there is no real reason in the universe that can prevent you from being kind to and loving yourself. The world needs your heart and today is the perfect day to start!
Today we challenge you to do a KINDNESS ASSESSMENT. The assessment is simple and at times you may struggle, yet this is where your MIGHTY COURAGE kicks in.
Do not give up, do not give in because building your kindness superpowers will have you win!
Get Ready, Get Set and GROW forward with your GIGANTIC KIND HEART.
KINDNESS ASSESSMENT DAY 12
- Are you willing to practice being loving towards yourself and others? Starting with YOU? Loving yourself just as you are and just as you are not?
If YOU ANSWERED YES, GREAT! Scroll down to STEP 2.
If YOU ANSWERED NO, stay right here and ask yourself this question.
Why are you NOT willing to be open-minded to love yourself and others just the way you and they are?
Think about what may be preventing you from practicing being loving towards yourself. This is not easy to do, yet we encourage you to write your answers on a piece of paper or in your journal.
- Write on a piece of paper or in your journal a list of things that may prevent you from loving yourself just the way you are and just the way you are not and also do that for the people that you have difficulties with.

NOW make today the day you begin to accept yourself for yourself and just love yourself! It is not easy we know, we all go through this, yet practicing will one day have you experience yourself and your life through a big loving heart!
