“Never pass up the opportunity to laugh with yourself, to delight in your own presence here, to welcome yourself home.”
I loved what Ash Parsons had to say about ‘self-friendship’. In other words, treating yourself as you would a most beloved friend.
She said, “The more I laugh with myself…care for her, give her time for rest and creativity, listen to her, tell her she’s beautiful, make her cups of tea and buy her Chapstick, the more alive I become. I’m getting my sense of humor back about myself, and the kindness I’m cultivating in *here* is spreading to others out there. It’s changing me and bringing me home to the faith I had as a child. That God is actually crazy about me and will use everything under the sun, even my own self, to show me.”
Be gentle and friendly with yourself today, y’all…and let that spread out to others along the way. 🙂
