Self-Compassion – Tool #5

Copy of Copy of Copy of Copy of playlist (1).png

The gift of Self-Compassion is a practice.

Like a string of pearls, each time you practice a moment of self-compassion, you string a pearl. And as you practice, you string another and another and another until you have a beautiful string.

And those pearls can help gird you when your inner critic pipes in to tell you you aren’t good enough.

And those pearls can help gird you in the face of a culture whose messages are designed to make you feel less than, not enough, always lacking.

And truly, like this quote says, this string can change your life.

Collect your pearls.

You are a gift.

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

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
