Self-Compassion – Tool #4

Copy of playlist (1)

Have you ever heard that saying that we teach what we most need?

This tool of Self-Compassion is a skill that I’ve had to learn again,
and again,
and again.

I feel like I’m hardwired to be hypercritical of myself. I am my own worst enemy. The things I have said to myself, I’d never say to another human being. Ever.

Then why would I heap it on my beautiful self?

If your compassion practice doesn’t include your SELF, then you are, paraphrasing author Deborah Adele, painting the world blue from a red paint can.

Compassion for others starts from being compassionate toward your SELF.

Peace, Sarah

Self Compassion – Tool #3

Copy of playlist
Words are powerful. I believe that what we say has a hand in what we create.

If you say, “I am bummed” enough….you will, indeed be bummed.

If you say, “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not able” or “I’m not worthy”…these things will be.

Words are powerful.

What if, instead, you said things that are constructive?

I am powerful.

I am beautiful.

I am brilliant.

I am able.

I am.

I am.

I am.

Give it a shot. Participate in the creation of your future. Life doesn’t just happen to you. You co-create it. You take what has been given and decide what to do with it.

I am ______________.
What are you?

Last time we talked stop signs. Now replace them with reconstructed I am’s.

Let me know how it goes.
Peace, Sarah

Self-Compassion Exercise

When my kids were both finally in school, I knew I needed to do some work around self-love and self-compassion. So I designed a self-study course for myself. High on the list was a book by Kristen Neff called, “Self Compassion.” You can see her TED Talk too by clicking here. 

One of the exercises in the book was to write a letter to myself from the position of a loving friend.

It was a game changer for me.
