Be Kind to Yourself, Too

Brenda Knight (author of Random Acts of Kindness) and Dawna Markova would agree that your soul remembers the bitter and sweet that you give yourself.

    Make a commitment to refrain from negative self-talk. Be kind to yourself and focus on the traits you like, rather than the ones you don’t. The extremely wise Dawna Markova, the author of a favorite book, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life, says, “Your soul remembers when you put yourself down; it imprints upon you. Never do this. Self-compassion is key to a life well-lived.”
