Prompt 8 – When I’m in pain — physical or emotional — the kindest thing I can do for myself is…

When I’m in pain — physical or emotional — the kindest thing I can do for myself is…

Be kind to myself.

Seems simple, but we (I) are our own worst critics.  We think we shouldn’t be slowed down or hindered by physical or emotional disruptions in the force (haha).  But seriously, as my life coach always reminds me… being kind to myself is the best gift I can give to myself.

If a good friend or family member was going through the exact same struggles I am, I would see all the brave and beautiful things about that person and would urge them to be kind to themselves.  So, the challenge to myself is to see the brave and beautiful things about myself during times of struggle… and be kind.  And maybe watch a harry potter marathon.  ;)
