We’ve all heard of the Fairy Godmother, who dispensed wishes to those in need. But let’s think a moment about, how nice it would be to have kindness fairies, who went about spreading only kindness! You are probably thinking, what do I need a kindness fairy for, I’d rather have the Fairy Godmother, who could grant me the wish of no more migraine. While that would be utterly amazing, unfortunately, we don’t live in a fairy tale.
This is my vision of a kindness fairy, soft, gentle, caring, full of goodness and light. A person you could trust, see how gently she holds the flowers? Like they were as precious as a newborn baby, or a kitten or puppy, more precious than a hand full of diamonds. A kindness fairy should be able to instill confidence, in those around her. Be real and sincere, when showing or giving kindness. Even in the written word, people can tell when someone is being real or just giving platitudes. When someone in the migraine community reaches out for help or questions, they need a kindness fairy who is totally 100% commented, to giving them their very best. When you have a migraine friend who is going through a rough time, or someone in a support group you belong to. Build them up with so much kindness, encouragement, support and inspiration, that they will feel like “Queen” for the day!
Once you start making kindness a part of your everyday life, it becomes natural to you. Kindness costs us nothing at all, but the rewards are priceless! Seeing a fellow migraineur blossom with new-found courage, hope and inspiration, makes your heart swell! Don’t just use your kindness fairy in the migraine community, there are many, many people, suffering great hardships right now. And all of these tragedies have affected every American, who could use a kind word, a smile and a helping hand, even if it’s just to open a door. It is amazing how these small gestures of kindness can lift a persons spirits. Don’t let the negativity, we see in the newspapers, online and TV, coming out of DC, bring you down! It is not worth the stress and the possibility of worsening your migraine, do what you can to help and try to put the rest away.
To my migraine sisters, who were affected by any of these tragedies, my thoughts and love are with you and yours!
“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
