This. This is going on my bathroom mirror.  (That’s where I write the words that melt my heart… in lipstick… which ruins my lipstick.)  You all know that I have zero problems when it comes to kicking my own butt…. the gentleness is where I struggle.  But this  quote makes a good point- I’m doing the best that I can.  Those are the words I’m going to whisper to myself the next time I file a form incorrectly.  Or the next time I fall short on my to-do list.  Or the next time my words come out wrong.  I’m doing the best that I can.

 

Where can you offer yourself some gentleness?  I often hear people apologizing for not making it to yoga in awhile.  But each day is a new day, so forget the days you didn’t make it, and feel good for showing up.  Be kind to yourself, and you’ll give other people permission to do the same.

 

xoxo
