We are responsible for our actions and our decisions and ultimately how kind we decide to be to ourselves.
My day had a bumpy start, I was about to board a train when I remembered I had not put a pen in my bag. I did a very bad Mum run to WH Smiths at the station and managed to make the train. Felt quite smug that I had turned things around.
The desperate need for the pen was to make notes on a book on my kindle. Sat back and retrieved the kindle to find it was out of charge. Still not deterred used my iPhone to create the kindle app, but failed to remember my amazon password. I wasted most of the journey with failed attempts and the ultimate lock out message.
When I arrived at Waterloo I decided to walk to my meeting as I needed to be kind to myself, after my rather unproductive train journey. The walk in the sunshine and along the South Bank in London was great for putting me in a lovely mood for my meeting.
When something goes wrong think of a way to be kind to yourself by doing something you will enjoy.
Of course you don’t have to be kind to yourself when something goes wrong, just make it a habit everyday. Write down when you have been kind to yourself as focusing on ourselves does have restorative effect for the rest of life.
