Be Kind to Yourself
A really good friend of mine reminded me to be kind to myself. Thanks Jeanne, you truly inspire and humble me.
I have a tendency to push myself beyond my limits. I’m stubborn, have a hard time asking for help, and have a bad tendency to try to be Super Girl. All of this contributes to my stress level, my creativity goes on the fritz, and I have a desire put a pillow over my head to block everything out.
In a kind, direct way, Jeanne reminded me man/woman can not run faster than they have strength. If I don’t take care of myself, I won’t be able to obtain my goals. As I show others compassion and friendship, I can’t forget to extend the same to myself.
Most importantly, look in the mirror and tell myself – I love you.
I’m grateful for my wonderful friends who support me, laugh with me, and will shed a tear with me. I know that I am alone, I am a part of a greater plan.
