Everything is going to be okay…


Todays Daily PromptWrite a letter to the personality trait you like least, convincing it to shape up or ship out. Be as threatening, theatrical, or thoroughly charming as is necessary to get the job done.

It is only recently that I have learnt to start speaking to myself more kindly and not so harshly anymore.  If I were to be writing myself this letter I will not be writing harsh, dramatic or charming letter to myself, but rather, I’d be writing this letter kindly and honestly.

I have often thought that being too soft, accepting and quite vulnerable was one of my greatest flaws, but I have realised that those are in fact my strengths.  So, my opinion is not to be too harsh on yourself, what you may see as a negative in yourself could well be a positive…reflect first and give yourself time before harshly chastising yourself, after all, we should be our own best friends.

I am feeling a bit of fear at the moment, very scared also…a person really close to me is ill.  I am awaiting the outcome of tests.  Somehow in my heart of  hearts I feel that everything is going to be alright.  It is at this time and times like this in my life that I am grateful for the compassionate and gentle part of myself which serves as a comfort to others close to me and a comfort to myself too, even though I am fighting back huge monster tears at the moment.

Treat yourself with kindness, treat others with kindness…wherever you path takes you…

  10. I too use to feel I was too ‘soft’ but being compassionate and ‘there’ for those that are close to us is not a bad trait, it’s a wonderful one… the ‘bad’ comes from those who take advantage of that kind nature! I hope all will be well with whoever it is who is unwell, I am sure that with your kindness and support ‘this too shall pass’ and everything will be fine.

  13. Everything is going to be okay, my dear!
    Love, care and compassion are more effective transforming tools than harshness and brutality.
    We improve when we are sincere with ourselves and when we painstakingly do all that is required of us at every moment.
    It is fine with your friend. Expect full recovery.
    Thanks for still taking out time to share your thoughts.
    Keep up the good work, happy hugger.

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
