In the last post I ended with:
So how do we fix UFJS (Un-Fulfilling Job Syndrome)? We place importance on discovering what we love to do without regard to age, health or ability, or even skill. Then we nurture the expression thereof.
Typically, nurturing is considered a thing we do with babies and little children. By the time we reach adulthood it is somehow expected that we will not need ‘that stuff’ anymore; to need nurturing is to be weak and to nurture is also weak.
In the Kindness Paradigm to nurture means “to help (something or someone) to grow, develop, or succeed.” (Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary accessed November 29, 2013) Certainly, that is not weak. The Kindness Paradigm allows us to re-envision what it is to be human and redefines chic.
