I had a series of very odd dreams last night. It was almost like mini flashbacks interspersed with magical realism. I can’t really explain it. Except there were some moments that flashed of where there had been conflict that was washed away in the rain or a soaking train ride. Dreams are really precious moments in our lives that can be helpful if we let them.
When I awoke I was amused to find that today is World Kindness Day and my dreams had entailed magical forgiveness. Then I also remembered as my grogginess wore off, that we were celebrating Thanksgiving a few weeks early today. Coincidence? There are no coincidences. That’s what pop media keeps telling me.
With kindness, should come gratitude. As you are appreciative of what others bring and what you have, being kind to others should be inherent and automatic. I don’t quite understand why we need a day of kindness to remind us of fundamental state of being that we should aspire to. Hopefully, however, some random acts of kindness will happen that will have some kind of butterfly effect.
Happy thanksgiving (a few weeks early) in gratitude.
