Wishcasting - What do you wish to be gentle with
Jamie asks us today What do you wish to be gentle with? My first thought was I wish to be gentle with myself.
Often when I get sick I get a little annoyed when I let that happen, especially when its something that lasts as long as this virus has. It really does not help in the healing process. I tried to let that go this time, to just take it easy and figure I need this down time. To take advantage of the time to just do what my body needs me to do.
I also put too much pressure on myself, to get this done or that done in a certain amount of time. Or perhaps I put this or that on my list of things to do and when weeks later I realize I haven't done them I beat myself up a little. That really serves no one either. I am a little better at this now but I haven't eliminated the trait. I wish when these thoughts come up to be gentle with myself, to treat myself as I would an other friend.
I think sometimes we treat our friends better than we treat ourselves. We are our own worst critic so often. I choose gentleness from now on.
