Ever felt like you owed the world some kindness and compassion? Not all of us are born to be saints and heroes, but what we can do is make sure we give ourselves some kindness and compassion instead.
You might have heard this ancient greek phrase:
…and how Socrates used to lecture about how this was the main focus of his life, to gain knowledge of himself – and that understanding oneself would enable thyself to have an understanding of others as a result.
In Mother Teresa’s quote below, I believe she is not only talking about the sharing of food – but also taking care of ourselves on the spiritual and mental level.
You can do much more good down the road if you first make sure you give yourself some well deserved attention, love, and take time to explore the inner workings of your mind and consciousness.
Meditation is an amazingly good tool for such a task, and helps you grow as a person. It can even lead to greater happiness – which can be both contagious and a gift to those around you!
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.”
– Mother Teresa
Do you take time to feed yourself some love and attention daily? Comment below, and share your thoughts!
