And here we are at the end of another year. Self-compassion and loving-kindness have been key concepts I've been working on. For if one cannot have compassion for themselves how could they possibly be compassionate towards others (we all know the world could use a bit more). I've made some progress, but the road is long. I welcome quiet moments of self-reflection and bigger shifts in my mindset. Instead of looking too far ahead, I will keep my eyes on today. Just today.
My aim in 2017 was to release. My aim for 2018 is to break free.
"Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
Today: Like most, I'm trying to figure things out. Sometimes that's day by day, moment by moment, and even breath by breath.
