We often expect too much of ourselves. With businesses, restaurants, daycare centers, churches and recreation centers beginning to reopen across the country, some may be feeling as if they haven’t made the most of their at-home time. I’ve seen social media posts by folks lamenting that they haven’t checked off most items on their to-do lists. To them and to myself, I say, “Go easy on yourself. You have been staying safe and protecting others. And that’s enough. You are enough.”
When we flow with ourselves rather than battle against ourselves, we live in harmony. And with the world in the state it is, any sense of harmony we can attain is a welcome gift—to us and to others.
