Be kind to strangers (and remember, you are the strangest!)

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Thanks to IndieGirl's excellent post from yesterday, today has improved a great deal. I'm getting over the flu, working on a Saturday, feeling low and blue and angry that I have been 'off track' for several days and have no energy still. Yes, that is how I started my morning--sad and angry because I have been sick!

Now if I were to encounter another person feeling that way, I would take the time to try and provide a little cheer or a little support or a little compassion. However, do I do that for myself? No, I have zero compassion, cheer, or support when it comes to me. That is just wrong.

Why is it so damn hard to remember that I deserve (insert whatever works for you here)? Why am I never as kind to myself as I am to strangers (and even people I don't much like)? Why don't I think I deserve a little extra time and attention on a morning when I wake up feeling less than? The answer is I don't think of me in that way.

Well that stops today. If I am unable to be kind to me, I will have to practice it--every day! So new goal for January--be nice to Cynthia, she is nice and in need of a little bit of help this month.

Thanks IndieGirl, you made all the difference....
