100 Words: Kind Without Caving

kind without caving BandW cookieOur culture loves black and white.
Just watch a mainstream movie.
Or listen to a politician.
Or a lawyer.
It’s all either/or, good guys/bad guys, with us or against us.

Black and white can feel easier…but it’s not the way things are. Movement and life are not binary code. They are gray and messy and both/and.

What feels right is both: soft and strong. Kindness without caving.

Have a conversation with someone who is both clear and kind, both strong and compassionate. Even if you disagree, it feels good to be with both.

Seek that sensation in movement, action, and words.
