I'm in kind of a "sweet spot" right now, so maybe I need to take myself with a grain of salt or two :), but I'm wondering how I'd feel in a year if I actually managed to speak kindly to myself (while still being accountable for my choices) for that whole time. I guess I'm nowhere near as bright as I thought I was, because it's never occurred to me before that the kindness I believe we're meant to show others is the same kindness we need most from ourselves. I mean, the THOUGHT of that crossed my mind, and I've even taught children about self love and positive self talk, but somehow it didn't apply to me. I missed the MEANING of it - what it looks like in the day to day conversations with self. Anyway, I'm going to change that, one moment's thoughts at a time. Thanks everyone for helping me see that light!
