Wake up. Kick ass. Be kind. Repeat. I think this will be my new morning mantra. I love the idea that we can be tough and go out there to kick butt and that at the same time we can be kind and compassionate.
You can be driven and focused but without stomping all over others. You can reach for your goals while doing it with love. I’m seeing more and more people embrace this balance that once seemed like a contradiction to me.
It can be a harsh world out there sometimes but we don’t make things any better by becoming harsh ourselves in an effort of self preservation. When you meet harshness, treat it with love. If someone is unkind to you they are probably the ones the most in need of kindness.
Infuse kindness into everything you do. From the way you deal with the sales clerk to that difficult email you have to write to someone. People always feel the intention behind your actions so choose them wisely.
Also, how much are you loving this print by Maiko Nagao (purchase it here) styled by @inarosetaupe? In case you haven’t noticed, I am totally into black and white inspiring quotes now and love featuring talented artists such as Maiko on my site. I’m even planning on creating a boutique where you guys could shop for these types of artwork. Is this something you would like to see more of? Please let me know by commenting below!
