From Acceptance to Kindness

Day 83: From Acceptance to Kindness

“Be kinder to yourself. And then let your kindness flood the world.” – Pema Chödron

Today has been a very long and difficult day. I do not have much to say that is inspirational. However, I remind myself on these challenging days that I always have the choice of acceptance. If I can choose to accept the challenges with patience, compassion, and self-forgiveness, kindness will unfold. Life is not always a box of chocolates or a warm bath, but by choosing to be kind to  myself I know that I will be able to turn that into kindness for all others or at least my children, as was the case tonight.

Time for a bath!
