First of all–and all the time–be kind. Be kind to yourself. Hold yourself dear. It is impossible to be of any value to others if you do not value yourself. Everyone is making his or her way in the best way they know how. When did we become so final in our judgments of people? We have to make big leaps–and those leaps lead to mistakes. We learn from those. We also learn from the mistakes of others. We’re all in this journey together, helping each other, supporting each other. Be kind. Love the journey and those taking it with you.
