The path to happiness and well-being never ends. Just when we think we've arrived, a new challenge presents itself and we begin again. This book was written to help dissolve the illusion that we can better ourselves to the point where emotional pain is a thing of the past. A more fruitful path is to cultivate uncommon kindness - kindness toward ourselves - as long as we live and breathe. In the words of meditation teacher Pema Chodron: "... we can still be crazy after all these years. We can still be angry after all these years. We can still be timid or jealous or full of feelings of unworthiness. The point is ... not to try to throw ourselves away and become something better. It's about befriending who we are already."
It could make all the difference in your life.

Today: Like most, I'm trying to figure things out. Sometimes that's day by day, moment by moment, and even breath by breath.
