I’m Fine, Just as I Am.

It’s harder to show compassion if we disconnect from our own wisdom and experience, perhaps rejecting some part of ourselves we think shameful. The key to loving another is the ability to love all of ourselves, being flawed but fully human, whole. 


O god, who makes your rain
To fall and your sun to shine 
on the wicked and good,
teach us to be compassionate.
Guide our efforts to become like you.


When you see the restroom cleaner, the grocery check-out clerk, or the sanitation worker, give them the kind of compliment you’d like to receive. Praise their work or thank them for it.

  1. Loved the action today giving a compliment to a cleaner or sanitation worker. So true, we must acknowledge those who do services for us.
