today, i had someone that was heckling & questioning my motives for this project.
it went on for about an hour & it was just silly.
i am not doing this project so people think 'wow, diana is such a good person. she is saving the whole planet. when i grow up, i want to be her.'
'[and own all of her yoga pants...]'
i am doing this project because there are bullies in this world & people that want to bring others down. this project is important to me, because i want to show others that you CAN do this. you can be nice to others. you can take $5 and 3 minutes out of your day to make it better for others.
this project isnt about me. its about encouraging others to be better & shine brighter.
today, i was feeling a bit bullied & targeted [related : i dont have very thick skin]. and i REFUSED to pick a fight // let anger win. i stood up for myself WITHOUT name calling & being a jerk.
this happens to all of us. a snide comment. someone that is rude to us. a mean blog comment. a middle finger on the interstate.
its not the easiest thing ; but taking the high road ALWAYS makes you a better human!
also, i am SO pumped to announce my first ever 'kindness flash mob' event. either today or tomorrow. really, my heart is feeling huge!!
