A bit of your heart? Or a piece of your mind?

So true ... our days are happier when we give people a bit of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.

It's not always easy. We have these things called - emotions and feelings. They surface and when anger, frustration, jealousy, resentment, and other negative energy abounds (inside of us - we want to give others a piece of our mind!) We want to be heard, understood, right, validated and so on...

What good does that really do?

It just feels better to be kind. Kindness and love always win.

Today, I received a very sweet email from my son (who is on a mission for our church) and I have not seen him for about a year. He has another year to go on his mission before he will come home.

I was touched by his kind words and the love he shared. The bit of his heart he shared with me - caused my heart to smile and it made me cry! I am thankful for his kindness.

He caused a kindness ripple affect - made me want to turn around and be kind to everyone around me. Amazing how that works!

What are you sharing today? 

A bit of your heart or a piece of  your mind?
Warning: Our actions have an affect on those around us.

Choose to share the good stuff. You won't be sorry. And a heart will smile :)
