Week 6 Be Kind Don’t Criticize
“I will greet this day with love in my heart.” ~Og Mandino
My routine has been thrown off from outside influence and life demands from others. This week has been harder for me. I have one speed due to physical handicap, slow & steady, and when you add more on my normal routine I falter and flounder.
I admit I’ve missed some reads this week, but I am hanging in and just picking back up. The unexpected is continuing into this weekend with several unplanned things, so trying to rearrange my schedule and expectations of self. Love myself and have a little compassion on me, because I was thinking maybe I’m not ready for this but that is the old blueprint talking.
I am my worst critic with a tendency to beat myself up when I fall below my own expectation. This week despite setbacks I am telling that negative self to shut the hell up and replacing that with kindness, compassion and love. My “spirit” is gregarious and loving. I need to be as supportive and kind to myself as I am to others. Learning to cope and adapt a turtle to the unexpected is sometimes extremely challenging.
Taking heart from the Turtle:
Turtles have existed since the prehistoric times. They must make it to the sea to live once they are born. First breath of life is a fight for survival. (animated)
Baby turtles fight to live slowly making their way to the ocean (Real Life)
Sea Turtles & Music for Meditation. Symbolically the sea represents the subconscious. Learning about life and limitations from the turtle.
