Life, I have found, is so very much more when lived with gentleness instead of harshness and loathing. Love and acceptance of self, of others, of life, given with gentleness and open arms gives back in ways innumerable and untold. To live without anger, hatred or judgement is to actually live and experience wonder. Will there still be those more negative, upsetting things, of course, but by feeling them and then letting them go instead of holding on and allowing them control – that’s living with gentleness. Being soft, caring, open – these are not character flaws, these are strengths if only they are given room to expand and just be. Live your life to it’s fullest potential and love yourself and the world around you a little more. It’s truly an amazing thing!
