#013: "I'm scared," admitted the Boy...

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

Oxherd Boy comic showing the boy standing next to a large ox admitting he is scared. The ox replies that fear is natural but kindness shall overcome. Beautiful illustration, Chinese painting, inspiring words

Today's prompt is KINDNESS. Happy World Kindness Day! Old illustration, when the Boy meets the Ox for the first time. 😊 We are all prone to see division, injustice, and conflict. They demand our attention and call us to act. It is not wrong to act, but I've found that when my actions are driven by fear and anguish, they tend to be hurtful and drives the pain deeper. I'm grateful for reminders to try to seek out kindness in myself and in others. Acting with kindness helps me overcome my fear. Accepting the kindness of others helps me overcome my pain.⁠

I'm taking part in Dani DiPirro (IG @positivelypresent)'s 30-day gratitude challenge for the month of November. Every day, I'll be illustrating a different comic based on her daily prompts.
