You’re right — they don’t deserve your forgiveness. But you do.

You are one of a kind! Perfectly imperfect worthy of love – particularly your own. This week, let’s focus on self care. The world is a little crazy now. Self Kindness is a must.
Did you really say that? “I’m sorry” works. Now, be kind.

Life is exhausting right now. Keep the madness at bay by getting extra rest. Go to bed an hour early. Take a short nap. Rest on your lunch break. Don’t let exhaustion get the best of you.

You’ve climbed more than your share of high, craggy mountains this week. It is time, now, to be kind to you. Rest. Draw in beauty and love. Focus on peace. Kindness begins in self care.
You are not called to fix the rain or stop the storm. You are called to love, to be kind. After you’ve done what you can, it’s all right to simply watch their storm blow by. Kindness is the storm that will heal the world. Be kind.
After the storm, it’s time to focus on self-care. A kinder world begins with self-kindness.
