Happy Easter! I could have found a pin with a cute bunny, and I almost didn’t share this post, but I decided to just go with it.
Today’s post was found from my friend Ashley. The first phrase is what really speaks to me. Being gentle with yourself is so important. What advice would you give a friend? Would you call them stupid? If you wouldn’t, don’t call yourself stupid.
Lately life has been noisy and confusing for me. The last weekend of March and first weekend of April were jammed packed. I felt like I was spread a bit too thin. I had dinner with friends one Friday night and left at 10:30 because I had been yawning at the table. Typically I could have stayed out til Midnight chatting and having fun.
Then last weekend I didn’t have many plans. And having so much free time was frustrating. I wanted to be busy, but couldn’t find something to do. This weekend I also didn’t have many plans. I taught 2 yoga classes on Saturday morning and was blessed with amazing students. I took my new bike out for the first time, and managed to pop a tire. But instead of being hard on myself like last weekend. I was gentle. I’ll try to fix it. If I can’t, I find someone who can help me, and hopefully teach me along the way.
Are you gentle with yourself? Or do you need to be reminded to be a little nicer?
