52 Little Questions #3


Week Three:  How can I be kinder to myself?

Most of us spend a lot of time beating ourselves up. Over mistakes we make, our weight, things we say or don't say, how much money we make (or don't). Things that happened in the past that we have NO control over now. Well you get the picture....

So this week looks at how can you be kinder to yourself....how can you STOP being your worst critic and start being your strongest supporter. We all mess up, we all have things we wish we could do over again. But life doesn't offer do overs...well not exactly anyway. So give yourself a BREAK.

Let go of past mistakes. When they creep into your mind, push them aside. Let go of the should haves and could haves. They aren't making your daily life any easier.

Oh it can be important to learn from our mistakes but dwelling on mistakes doesn't help us learn. It just puts us in a constant state of anxiety. It also keeps us from living in the here and now. Live life now making the best choices you can. When the day ends let go of any missteps or problems. They can dissolve into the night and you can start fresh tomorrow with an open clear mind and a light heart!
