Day 10   It takes a village....

Today was my last day prior to vacation.  I have been stressed as the normal person is and have been looking forward to getting away.  I have been thinking today of how both Buddha and Jesus needed time off to regroup.  Buddha left his family and sat under a tree until he fought his inner demons and found enlightenment.  Jesus left his family at some part and went to the wilderness to fight Satan and find his purpose.  I would say this was enlightenment as well.  At times, I believe being kind to myself (and others) have been to isolate myself during times of distress, conflict or fatigue either emotional or physical.  Today, I have to second guess this.  I find that others can help build me up and bring happiness in a laugh, in an effort to help, in a gentle word or in openness.  In this life, I doubt to be enlightened as Jesus or Buddha.  I hope that in my struggles to improve kindness in myself so that possibly I can help others with their own happiness.  I thank those today who have shown grace and kindness to me.
