Try a little tenderness. Direct kindness to yourself and others throughout the day. We all need it!

When I hear the word tenderness my initial thoughts go to meat. I remember as a child my mom shaking a canister of Adolph’s meat tenderizer over various cuts of meat, especially those that required a bit more molar action.

These days I think about babies and young children and how we adults act around them and their innocent natures. Noticing our efforts at baby talk and delicate handling, these precious little ones get the lion share of our tenderness and kind attention.


Where and with whom could you offer a little more tenderness? How can you be even kinder and more generous with your softer side?
