The Gentleness Mission


CARD 31 GENTLENESS (gardenia): Remember that being kind with yourself and others can be a way to show gratitude.

Notes from the artist: After 75+ days of drawing a flower a day, I found myself getting extremely exhausted. I drew this gardenia on day 78 after forcing myself into the studio. The flower was so delicate that I found my hand gently laying down the lines of this drawing with ease. The message seemed to be that even in your most tired moments, you can always try to notice the gentleness in the people and things around you, to let in the kindness, and to let it flow through you and onto others. What arises when you notice the gentleness around you and allow it in?
