The point... we are really hard on ourselves. We assume we are doing this life stuff wrong. But what if for one moment we lay off the shaming and acknowledge we're doing it right, because we’re human, not SUPER human. We’re allowed to be affected by the intricacies and hard bumps of life. We’re allowed to be pleasing and pissy. As one if my favorite meditation teachers says (as if I have so many).... “you are human, dear one. You’re allowed to be in both ways”.
And we are. Take a look at that silent (yet not silent at ALL) dialogue running through head. How often are you doing it ALL WRONG. How worn down are you?
Imagine the lightness you feel when you loosen up the reigns a little. Give yourself the wiggle room of forgiveness + compassion. I think I wrote about compassion last week, too. I think I'm sensing a theme. Right now... I'm looking for all the ways to enjoy life. And it only comes when I love myself. Despite buying all the beautiful linen bedding.
This self-compassion stuff is not given enough air time, when I swear it’s the thing that will create the direct path to the life we're craving.
