someone other than me needs the reminder:

Create Time For Self-Compassion
Being Gentle With Ourselves


During those times when our lives are filled with what seems to be
constant change and growth, it is important to remember that we need to
be gentle with ourselves. Since it can be easy to use our energy to
keep up with the momentum of our lives, we may not be aware of the fact
that we are much more likely to run ourselves down. When things seem to
be moving quickly, it is especially essential that we make a point to
slow down and be gentle with ourselves.

It might be difficult to notice what is happening to us for we may
be so caught up in the whirlwind of our lives that we lose sight of the
direction in which things are heading. Being gentle with ourselves
doesn�t mean that we don�t accomplish things. Instead it means that we
honor ourselves on an ongoing basis and take care of the needs of our

This means different things to different people. For instance, it
could mean having a session with a healer; taking a remedy, herbs, or
vitamins; or getting extra sleep. Putting our energy into ourselves in
this way helps create space for a more positive, loving, and accepting
view of our lives. By setting the intention to do so, we will be more
cognizant of our energy levels on a daily basis and more able to
replenish them as needed.

The more we are able to treat our bodies with gentleness, the more
tenderness and compassion we will call forth into our lives. Learning
to understand and pay attention to what our self needs will in turn
allow us to fill our lives with unlimited loving and healing energy and
to truly take care of the things that mean the most to us.
