Entrepreneur Hilaria Baldwin, the wife of actor Alec Baldwin, took to Instagram on New Year’s Day to set her intention for the year.
Hilaria looked downright cozy in a fuzzy brown coat, lounging on a white couch surrounded by her six children. Baldwin looked to be dressed in dark slacks and a black jacket as he smiled for the camera, holding two of his youngest children in his arms.
After a rough 2021 due to the tragic “Rust” shooting that led to the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, Hilaria Baldwin is determined to begin the new year with a fresh start.
Hilaria Baldwin Says ‘Life Is Naturally Flawed’
Hilaria began her post by saying, Apparently 2022 is going to be flawless.”
“We have dealt with so much awfulness lately, so it must be about time, right?” she asked. “I planned a whole post & year dedicated to the best year ever.”
“Then I got scared-what if more horrible things happen & I can’t make it all good for everyone?” she continued. “Then I realized that this thinking is the problem. Life is naturally flawed. Its beautiful & tragic, happy & sad. There is no magical: it’s just gonna be good. Because we know when it inevitably isn’t, so many of give up and throw in the towel.”
“It’s about HOW we ride the ups and downs of life’s waves that will partly determine our quality of life,” she shared. “How we take care of ourselves, how we take care of each other. Which leaves me to this conclusion: dedicate this year to kindness.”
Hilaria Wants To Make 2022 A ‘Year Of Kindness’
“Kindness nurtures others and the world we inhabit and leave to our children,” she explained. “Kind also just feels good. This isn’t Darwinism, the kindness well is never empty-IF we continue to fill it with our will, action and determination.”
“We have been talking a lot about bullying, particularly online,” she added. “I’ve been given good info that there are actually very few trolls—they are just loud, create many accounts, and go out of their way to be mean. We have all experienced it. No one creates fake accounts to spread kindness😂-obviously because we stand by the nice things that we say.”
“Another thing I learned is that the average person is not very vocal about all the nice things we think and feel,” she continued. “We just scroll on with our lives, not taking time for random acts of kindness. Imagine if we began to go out of our way to be kind. It costs nothing and we all have the capacity for kindness. When I hear something kind, it makes my heart so full & helps so much to dissolve negativity.”
“Remember Care Bears? The 80s child that I am goes back to blasting a rainbow at negativity. So join me & be a care bear,” she joked. “Taking action is the only way to tip the scale back into a positive place. We have to add more of the kind ingredient to drown out negativity.”
“Silence will make us weak & give more space to the very few who want to spread negativity,” she concluded. “Let’s be vocal for us now, our future, & the environment we leave our children. We got this #kindwarriors2022.”
It looks like Hilaria, who gave a master class on how to deal with Internet trolls earlier in December, is going to try to drown out the negativity and hope for a happy and healthy 2022!
