Practice Compassion: Our Wellness Depends On It…
” If someone falls, compassion helps you to say, ” Stand up. You can do it.” Compassion comes from respect, and is the result of knowing that others are strong enough and intelligent enough to make their own choices.” don Miguel Ruiz
Sit down for a while… Put your feet up and sit back for a moment. Who told you to listen to the sirens and their silly calls? Who asked you to take the longer road and pay those extra tolls? The stress is turning you into a mess so stop and please … rest.
When we take on a new project or set new goals, our old tapes and habits battle to pull us back from our goals. Those critical voices yearn for dark places where light dare not go. We take a step and those forces fight back. Believe me, ignore them and just have some fun…
We look around us and try to engage with people and places that are really a/in pain. We fret and we fuss as we struggle for small gains. Instead of fussing and fighting for things we can’t change, let’s share our compassion and soon, real soon, wellness will surely call our name…
On any given day, we do have the choice to embrace our wellness; let’s take a wellness walk this week for the sake of self love. Be compassionate as we enter a new week, and show some love… to ourselves and others. Relax and Breathe… We can do it!
“There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.” Mahatma Gandhi
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
