So at this very moment I am really irritated and I am trying to find my compassion button. I have been working my compassion button a lot lately, sometimes with greater success than others. Below are some real life examples of me trying to move past my irritation with people and try to view them and their actions through the loving lens that covers my eyes and mind when I press that compassion button.
Today, I step into the arena!
Thank you for the push, Theodore Roosevelt and Brene Brown!
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better,”
“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by duty and sweat and blood…who at the best know in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly…”
