“Be gentle with yourself, but do the work.”
This will be my theme for the week.
Stuff’s gotta get done, for sure… and I want to accomplish things… but not push myself sooooo hard that it becomes counter-productive and I’m falling over with exhaustion and crying into my scrambled eggs... So unnecessary.
Gentleness and listening to one’s own internal barometer are KEY to happiness…
And consistent actions are KEY to doing the work…
Balance? Ha! Easier said than done.
“Stop trying to control others and focus instead on being kind to them.” - Leo Babauta, Zenhabits.net
The above quote applies to the self too!
Focus on KINDNESS!
Self-kindness = super important… and nice... especially while working.
