Coming into recovery has allowed me to discover many things about myself. My likes and dislikes, my preferences if you will.
Lately I have been realizing how much I enjoy when I am greeted with kind eyes. I used to refer to them as “soft eyes”. Working with children for many years I realized how important my energy and expression were when the kids would enter a room.
If my eyes were squinty and serious looking it would provoke uneasiness within the children.
To be received with kind, soft, gentle eyes is such an amazing feeling it calms me to my core.
So these days when I find something that I love, I try to become it myself.
My intention is to be more mindful of what my eyes are saying to the others. I want to proceed in this world with kind eyes as much as possible.
