Mini-Ep. 2 - Self-Compassion
The Dalai Lama once said, “If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of developing compassion for others.” Today is the launch of the #onekindsummer campaign on the pod, and we start by focusing on self-compassion. A lot of what I’m referencing today is from Dr. Kristin Neff’s book called, “Self-Compassion – The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself.” Brené Brown called it “a transformative read.” It’s a book every human should read.
I’m on a 4-week break from posting interviews, but in the meantime I want to take a few minutes each week to think about how we can spread kindness this summer and beyond. I think we can all do with a bit more kindness in the world. This isn’t something more for your to-do list, and this isn’t something you need to do it perfectly. It’s just about showing up and being open if we choose to.
So stay tuned if you’re interested. Interviews will resume on Tuesday, July 9th. See the full transcript HERE. This show is a labor of love for me, so I’d be grateful if you would rate or review it. Thank you!
