Day 50

“When we see ourselves as we truly are–divinely perfect human beings struggling to live out the gifts of spirituality–we have an opportunity to crack open the door of compassion a bit. When we can compassionately see that we fumble, we make mistakes, or that we are (if only faintly and occasionally!) aware of a goodness within us that we do not always know how to express, we start to be aware of feelings of compassion for ourselves.  Once we are aware of compassion for ourselves, it is only a very short step to begin to feel compassion for others.” – Anne Wilson Schaef
