Inspired by World Kindness Day, my mind, free from audio interference on my way home from running this morning started wandering. to be you.
What if you had to interview ‘someone’ to be you. What would you write in your job description? Not just the skills required for your day job, but the qualities you feel are necessary to mimic how you behave at home, from domestic duties through to the way you interact with your children and even the moral values you live by.
What would someone need “a good understanding of…” and what would be the skills or characteristics that would be beneficial?
How does this relate to World Kindness Day?
Well, in my head at least I was quite intrigued by how many different traits make up a particular person, and on that note perhaps we should ensure we are kind to ourselves today, even if we aren’t helping pregnant ladies with shopping bags or mowing the lawn for a local nursing home.
You are tricky to replicate, in fact you are unique and anyone who took the job as the new you would fall short somewhere trying to fill your shoes. Let’s not beat ourselves up about not being good enough, we must celebrate being us!
Be proud of those skills in your job advert, however you have ended up where you are. Be it through good life experiences or bad, you have gathered irreplaceable knowledge that makes you the only person to do exclusively what you do.
That doesn’t mean you can only do what you are doing currently from now until forever; evolution is only natural and if you have your sights set on bigger things, write that dream ‘job or person description’ and plan your way to get there.
Good luck, and stay kind
