Compassion for myself
Friday, June 04, 2010
“All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness ... the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.”
As I reflect on the past few months, my question to myself continues to be one thing. I've stuck to a regiment, I've walked away from most foods, but due to the stress around me, have I been compassionate to myself? I have lost track of one of the true traits I need to get to my goal? Self love. Have I taken my eyes off the the whole goal? I believe I have. I have not kept in touch with my wonderful friends here as I didn't want them to notice the sarcastic and tired edge I am carrying. It has not been in a true spirit of love for myself and others that I have been doing this. I've made it a chore not a goal to better myself, and I was frightened that someone would see through it. Someone did see through it. Me.
So let me apologize to my friends for not being here, for disconnecting and not supporting them as I should. I have not been happy with myself I know sometimes we all get side tracked but I also know I am a special creation and I am worth taking the time for me. Thank you for the continued encouragement.
May your day be blessed and may you know how special you are.
