Be kind to yourself

Just a quick post to say hello.
I've been pondering the concept of being kinder to yourself. It's something so simple yet something I think we can often forget.
If you don't achieve something that you set out to do, it's easy to get caught into a cycle of negativity and self doubt thinking that you're just not good enough. When in fact, you were just doing the best you could in that moment, perhaps it will be easier next time.
I think very few people set out to sabotage their own lives, if you are doing your best then I think that's perfectly fine, and that you shouldn't compare yourself to what other people have, or are achieving.
So the next time you catch yourself berating yourself, stop and think, that's okay I know I'm doing all that I can. Tomorrow is a new day, you can try again, try to move forward.
Which I think brings us nicely into the "Serenity Prayer," something I have always liked and found helpful.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
