Be Patient with Yourself

One of my favorite, most profound and thoughtful beautiful bloggers is Fran. Today she posted a great quote for the new year. As we try to make resolutions one of the frequent results of making promises to ourselves is often disappointment, followed by beating ourselves up, followed by lowered self-esteem. Who needs that?

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them - every day begin the task anew. St. Francis de Sales

For a lovely new year's inspirational post go HERE.

Diane - thank you so much for these kind words, words I do not feel worthy of but am grateful for nonetheless.

We all must carry each other along, with great love and compassion. Which means carrying ourselves that way as well... now there's the rub.

Peace to you my beautiful blog friend!
