“Without freedom from the past, there is no freedom at all.” ~Krishnamurti
If we’re not catching what we’re fishing for, it is probably a good idea to cast our nets out further…or fish in a different pond.
This is one of our favorite stories to tell…
I usually pack our breakfasts and lunches. One evening it had gotten particularly hectic and I didn’t have time to get it done. I told Hubby he’d be on his own in the morning.
When he got home the following evening, I asked him what he’d had for breakfast.
“I did really, really well! I had a plain bagel!”
“Yep. It came with a piece of cheese!”
“Yep. And a sausage patty!”
“Oh! And an egg, too!”
“Wow! That was some plain bagel!”
“Yeah. I thought the same thing! What a deal, right? And they threw in a hash brown patty, too!”
The gate to happiness in self-compassion.
It is in the application, not the learning, that we experience growth.
In every mistake made, there is the potential for personal growth.
