nurturing and encouraging self kindness and self compassion

Many of us are generously nurturing and encouraging others,
but perhaps we’re not as aware of how important it can be to nurture ourselves, too?
Stepping back and reflecting…
realizing the many benefits
of offering increasing kindness and compassion to ourselves…
Perhaps, the kinder and more compassionate we are with ourselves,
the more nurturing, accepting and encouraging we are with ourselves….
the more content and happier we’ll be…
and the more that will spread to and benefit others, too.

    Being kind to self is something that I have had to learn. One thing I recently learned is that hospitality isn’t just outward action. There is also the inward action of hospitality; giving hospitality to all the parts of self, parts we like and those we don’t.

  7. self kindness and compassion, what a beautiful message. I do believe that the more gentle we are with our own precious self, the more gentle we are able to be to others and to our planet. it’s a win/win endeavour!
