  1. Greeley Pond looks like a lovely spot to be reminded of kindness, of gentleness and yes, of compassion toward our own self. We are so quick to reach a hand to others and so quick to berate our self. This has to stop, really.

    • Greeley Pond is a magical spot…and so is the hike up to it…simply magical!… following along that path is soothing, quiet, harmonious, balanced, lots of magical little rocks, roots, mushrooms, trickles of water…quietly beautiful.
      And yes…so easy with others (usually)…but strangely enough, not with ourselves…
      As I think about it, almost all the ideas in Reflections, this entire blog, are about encouraging this kindness and compassion toward and in ourselves…which will then pass along to others, too… The reason I make suncatchers etc is to help make this shift…to remind myself through “light coming through” and “illuminating” the ideas on the suncatchers…pretty too. : )

      Marie had some helpful and nice thinking about this idea in her comment on the previous post about flexibility

  2. I like to be reminded as often as possible to be kind to myself. It’s so strange, it’s easy to be kind to others while we may harder on ourselves. I however, I have learned to value my good traits, kindness being one of them. 🙂
