Advice to Former Self

First I would give her a huge hug. The kind that kind of takes a part of your soul out (the hugger) and gives it to the “huggee”; she really needs that. Then I would tell her: ’stop, slow down, you are loved for who you are not for what you do’. I would probably tell her to repeat that to herself everyday.

Warrior Moment

I was able to practice self compassion on Monday. I was not feeling well and very tired and allowed my body to rest during the work day instead of accomplishing another task.

Definition of Recovery

Beautiful imperfection.
