Chapter 4, Page 10, Book 21

In order to be kind to others, we must first learn how to be kind to ourselves.

Jaclyn Lindsey

April 10th - always be kind

Life isn’t about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.

George Bernard Shaw

If we want to be happier, we need to start by being kinder to ourselves. If we aren’t happy, we can’t make others happy. Every day carve out some time for yourself to do something that brings you joy.  Be kind to yourself by giving yourself some ‘me’ time.

Acknowledge your achievements as well as those of others.  Give yourself some recognition too. Relish your achievements and compliment yourself.  If your inner critic is against you , who can be for you.

Forgive yourself, We all mess up. but we can learn by our mistakes .  If you’re angry at yourself, you need to show yourself kindness and stop blaming yourself and resolve to do better.

Three things in human are life are important. The first is to be kind.  The second is to be kind.  And the third is to be kind.

Henry James

Take good care of yourself and get enough sleep, eat fruits and vegetables and get some form of exercise.  Respect yourself for who you are and don’t let othere dictate your value.  Refuse to campare yourself to others. 

Treat yourself, You don’t have to wait for someone else to see something you really want and give it to you, give it to yourself as a gift.  Always remind yourself of your good qualities. Give yourself a moral booster and come up with a plan to reward yourself.

Remind yourself that you are good enough or smart enough to get what you want.  You deserve to be happy and in the long run you’ll be making others happy too.

Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities.  Accept yourself as you are.  There is only one person in the world that you’ll always have a relationship with and that’s yourself.  Be kind yourself and be happy!

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

I'm loving that Jan Phillips quote! Since retirement, I've been carving out entirely TOO MUCH time for myself ... and you know what? That brings me joy.
