“Whatever you are doing, love yourself for doing it. Whatever you are feeling, love yourself for feeling it.”—Thaddeus Golas
As our world is being rearranged, as the old ways are crumbing, it’s wildly important to be exceedingly kind to yourself. To repeat, again and again, the two magic words: “It’s okay.”
If you haven’t taken a shower in 3 days, it’s okay.
If you feel scared, it’s okay.
If you haven’t accomplished a single thing from your to-do list, it’s okay.
If you haven’t taught your kids a single math problem, it’s okay.
No matter what.
No matter what is happening, it’s important to acknowledge that it’s okay.
No matter how you feel, no matter how you think, it’s okay.
The Truth about ourselves lies beneath the train of thoughts plowing through our minds. And it’s still rock solid.
It can’t be changed by our panic, our judgments, our anger, all of which are normal, everyday antics of our minds. And they’re okay. It’s all okay.
Today, as I learn to be gentle with myself, I find there’s no need to do anything. But breathe.
