When Resolutions Wain: Embracing Mindful Self-Compassion

No matter what intentions or resolutions we set for ourselves, there will be days and even weeks when we don’t live up to our expectations. That’s human. When we learn that those are simply opportunities to begin again, and again, with loving kindness for ourselves, the likelihood of being successful increases. But that isn’t always easy and doesn’t come naturally to many of us. Mindfulness and self-compassion have the potential to teach us how to forgive and love ourselves, embracing our humanness.
