Need To Recharge Your Batteries?

May 15, 2018



Try self-compassion.


Self-compassion is like a cozy blanket being wrapped around you on a chilly night.


It is like a warm breeze blowing in your face as you sit on the beach and listen to the waves.


I was reminded of the power of self-compassion over the last few weeks. I teach others how to use this powerful tool to help them flourish and tell myself I am preaching to the choir. 


How do I actually practice self-compassion?


It begins with listening to my body, mind and soul.  It begins with noticing myself, not in an arrogant or boastful way, in a tender, sensitive way I would notice a friend in need.


What am I saying to myself?  Would I say those words to a family member or spouse? 


My words can build up or tear down.  Why not fill my reservoir with love, joy, peace, forgiveness and strength instead of self-judgement, comparison and criticism?  


 Self-compassion is a way of emotionally recharging our batteries so we can give to others and move forward.


I choose to use this tool today by simply choosing one or two replenishing activities, such as: writing or speaking affirmations to myself, resting, taking a mindful walk (barefoot) or praying, all followed by an acknowledgment of  my steps forward.





To acquire wisdom is to love oneself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.                                                                         Proverbs: 19:8
