How Can I be Kind to Myself?

Greetings fellow mindful travelers,

Happy March!  This month I want to shine some light on something that has been a personal struggle as well as person growth practice of mine for some time.

Most of us develop an internal critical voice that says things like “you’re not good enough,” or “you’re a failure,” as a result of difficult life experiences.

This month I want to speak to this issue by sharing a recent podcast interview I did on the Beyond the Couch Podcast.

In the interview I speak to what it looks like to love yourself, why it can be hard to do so, and how mindfulness plays a role in all of this.

Like I said, being kind, compassionate, and loving toward yourself is a practice and one that has been vitally important to me in my life.

No one is perfect; I am still learning to love myself and am on the journey with you.  Everyone once in a while my inner critic will get the best of me.

That’s OK, just remember to come back the practice of self-kindness over and over again.

Remember, it’s a life journey, and all the love that you could ever want is already abundantly within you.

Enjoy the interview 🙂
