For Kinship 2018: A Year To Get Consciously Cozy, we are going back to the basics. We are creating magic in the ordinary. We are committing to the present moment in its simplicity. We are taking pleasure in the small things in life and aspiring to make everyday tasks more dignified, joyful and beautiful. And this is a culture that we want to impart to our guests. We thought the word ‘kinship’ fits well with the theme because it represents community and one’s family, friends and loved ones – and that is exactly who we want to be share these special moments with.
We welcome you to experience our way of life and embrace our CaymanKind-inspired lifestyle. For the last few blog posts, we have been exploring what we feel are the Five Secrets to Everyday Happy Living.
These Secrets have been inspired by what we believe are the five universal themes of our local kindness: Find Tranquility, Create Abundance, Treasure Togetherness, Embrace Comfort and Choose Kindness and Positivity.
For our Fifth and Final Secret, we are dedicating ourselves to Choosing Kindness and Positivity. The readiness to see life from a positive perspective is a major pillar of the CaymanKind-inspired lifestyle. At our Beach House, we try not to pursue happiness as a goal, but as a way of being.
Activities that we offer to help guests embrace kindness and positivity include helping them write Letters of Thankfulness, which provides them the opportunity to show the people they love how much they appreciate them. This is a wonderful activity that is nourishing for the soul! Another great activity is Sunrise Yoga. Guests are welcome to rise with the sun and start off their day with positivity and light. Sessions are led by our friends at Bliss Yoga Cayman and are held on the deck next to the Vista Bar, facing Seven Mile Beach. Yoga mats, towels and water are provided.
In our pursuit of this final Secret to Every Happy Living, we were captivated by the following quotes on choosing kindness and positivity. We hope they inspire you to embrace a positive attitude and spread good vibes.
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” – Mark Twain
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” – Dalai Lama
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. – Lao Tzu
“Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better.” – Harvey Mackay
“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton
