Be Kind To Yourself

At times it is hard to be kind to ourselves. We frequently apply negative self-talk, personal insults, and judgments against ourselves without a thought of extending a compassionate inward glance. Today, let’s make all self-talk positive. Instead of criticizing our actions, let’s praise our effort. If we fail, let’s applaud our willingness to shake it off and get going again. The short YouTube video provides a wonderful example of how jumping to judgment leads to wrong conclusions with others and with ourselves.
