What’s the kindest thing I can do for myself right now?
Life can be tough. It can throw us unexpected curve balls that knock us clean off our feet. It can serve us long term challenges that drain our optimism, crush our self-belief and test our faith. Sometimes these difficulties show up externally; health problems, redundancy or loss of a loved one. And sometimes they show up internally: a mean inner critic, a troubled mind or chronic pain. Our world responds to the external challenges more easily than internal ones – mostly because help can be more easily offered to that which is seen, rather than unseen.
