An authentic and genuine life grows like a sturdy tree. And like a tree, it grows slowly. Every time you make a different and better decision, it grows a little. Every time you choose to do the right thing, even when nobody would find out otherwise, it grows a little. Every time you act with compassion, relinquish your right to strike back, take a courageous stand, admit fault or accept responsibility, it grows a little.– Steve Goodier
One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned this year is that it is important to focus on the little things. Small changes. Every day, day after day, you need to see that you’re making a difference, even in the smallest of ways. Sometimes that’s all that you have to hold onto.
I’m taking the rest of this year slowly. Day by day, one step at a time. That’s what I’m doing for my self care. That’s what I’m doing to look after my mental-health, and to just keep going.
