Try a little tenderness

Seems to me that a lot of us are pretty hard on ourselves.

We don't feel we live up to our expectations, life isn't turning out the way we hoped or expected, why can't we do this or that -- or if we can do this or that, why can't we do it faster, higher, lower, wha-evah.

So how about giving ourselves a great big break.

And a little tenderness.

Touch something - oh, so lightly; tenderly.

Your desk, computer, shirt.

Barely making contact with your fingertips, rub it oh, so slightly; tenderly.

And imagine being that gentle with your heart. Your being, your soul.

Take a deep breath. Let it go.

Treat yourself as kindly as you would someone for whom you care deeply.

Feel yourself open to the world, inhale more powerfully, be in closer touch with yourself and the world.

Maybe just for today, consider yourself, your body, soul and mind precious. And watch others treat you the way you project.
