> I often need a reminder to be more kind to myself. Ok, more than often! I am, according to my husband, more than a little harsh with myself most of the time. I beat myself up a lot, hold myself to extremely high (sometimes unattainable) standards, and am pretty much my Own Worst Enemy. Aren’t we all a little like this? I hope I’m not the only one…but then again, I hope no one else’s own-worst-enemy is as harsh as mine, either. Because of this, I really seek encouraging, supportive things out. Whether they be friends, websites, books, art, or the like. Well, fellow blogger Fifi Flowers posted the best story the other day, and it was just the reminder I needed. I am always amazed at where and when the universe places these little bits of sunshine in my life. I was just reading through a few blogs I follow, and there it was, just what I needed…just when I needed it. I had to share it with you! I couldn’t find a place on her post to comment, so I’ll thank her here for posting this story. Thanks Fifi!
The Two Pots
It’s OK. I can admit… I cried a little when I finished reading it, too. How beautiful; the little cracked pot was making the world beautiful and didn’t even realize it! This made me stop and think how grateful I am for the people in my life that accept me, cracks and all. It reminds me to be that sort of friend to myself. I hope I am making a difference, just like the little flawed pot. Make sure you slow down and notice the world around you today. Tomorrow too, because one day, you will realize the little things in life we try to squeeze into our busy schedules are really the big things!
