The eighteenth of May 2020

goats, kindness

Today marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. For my family, it also marks two full months of COVID lockdown. It has not been easy to say the least. The theme of this year’s mental health awareness week is kindness. The organisation picked kindness specifically because:

We have chosen kindness because of its singular ability to unlock our shared humanity. Kindness strengthens relationships, develops community and deepens solidarity. It is a cornerstone of our individual and collective mental health. Wisdom from every culture across history recognises that kindness is something that all human beings need to experience and practise to be fully alive.

This is so important, especially now, to practice kindness to others and especially to ourselves. I hope y’all stick with me this week, as I will also adopt the theme of kindness for goat of the day.
