|My question for you this Friday is “What have you done for yourself lately?”
Listen to the subtle messages that come your way. Just this morning my mom said she was going to workout and said it was a “mitzvah (Hebrew word for good deed) that she was doing for her body.”
During my yoga class my instructor repeated the quote by Jack Kornfield “If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” This really resonated with me.
So often our inner critic overrides our commitment to our own well-being.
At Compassionate Atlanta we talk about 3-D compassion – compassion for self, compassion for others, compassion for the earth.
So, maybe it’s a restorative yoga class once a week or carving out time for coffee with a friend or saying no to too many obligations.
This coming week I invite you to identify and embrace a mitzvah for yourself. Thereby, you can be full of compassion and be well equipped to be compassionate for others.
