Kindness Starts with Yourself

So I want more kindness in my life, where do I start? Well, counter-intuitively authentic kindness starts with being kind to yourself.

An Authentic Life Without Fear

It's easier to describe the presence of something than the absence of something but the feeling I had really was an absence; I noticed fear wasn't there. I listened for it, I tried to feel it, I waited for a fleeting thought to come and it simply didn't appear.
