Spreading kindness

Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent, my personal favorite liturgical season.

It is the beginning of spring for me.

It is a time for renewal.

It can mean whatever you want it to mean.

One thing I do during Lent is to do acts of service.

Again, this can mean whatever you want it to mean.

This year, to me, it means I go out of my way to say kind things to co-workers.

I mean, who else am I going to see in this year?

(Covid numbers are down, please don’t be stupid.)

I perceive myself to be severe.

I am no one’s pick for the popular squad.

However, I am everyone’s pick for trivia.

I know I have a tendency to get wrapped up in my brain.

Thinking my thoughts.

Making my plans.

Thinking of all the thousand of details that encompass a shift in the OR.

This allows me to get out of my head for a little while.

To really focus on others and what I can do for them.

Why be kind?

Why not?
