Gentle people make others feel appreciated. As we wander through the 12 days of Christmas, today is all about finding our gentle selves.
There’s lots of talk these days about resilience. The need for kids to be able to bounce back from challenges. The picture we get of resilient kids is that they’re tough.
But I know lots of adults who I would describe as resilient, but not tough. Instead they have a gentleness about. They bring peace and pleasure to their friends and family. They’re gentle but strong.
And that’s the gift I’m unwrapping today. How to be gentle without being a walkover. Because gentleness is about not forcing your way in life.
