Gentle is a fantastic word that I feel embraces the magical side of vulnerability.
Gentle….implies patience, grace and class.
Being gentle with yourself means you are honoring where you are…at this moment…without judgment. Simply allowing yourself to feel your feelings.
When you honor yourself and are gentle with yourself you are giving yourself permission to just be. Allowing yourself to be in that moment and feel your feelings truly opens up your soul to healing and your mind to information that can help you on your Journey.
When you judge yourself you are boxing yourself into a space of shame & disappointment with “should have’s” and personal regrets that do not serve a purpose. The goal of life is to learn the lesson and move on, gracefully. Forgiving yourself along the way.
Know that you are exactly where you need to be, always. Simply be & ask yourself what you need at this very moment…love, space, help, advice? Then honor yourself with whatever it is you need and do not shame yourself for feeling and needing, it is all part of the healing process and critical to your development.
Today, at every moment, be gentle with and honor yourself.
Remember, enjoy today, because tomorrow is not promised.
