Discipline in Loving-Kindness

WEEK 1: Making Our Kindness Right! 

Day 2, April 5-6, 2015 [Read Psalm 119:9-16]
The energy of today is Discipline in Loving-Kindness, so just for today replace every critical thought with a thought of appreciation. 

~Karen Berg

How necessary are those boundaries, defined with love. This is the essence of ‘tough love’, or parenting, or dog training (which I’m in the midst of). Personally, if I don’t remember to set those boundaries, to exercise restraint, I have a tendency to just give and give and give…and then end up exhausted, or frustrated. Self-care is discernment, well applied.

Blessings to all for careful self-care for this day of counting. Remembering, that, in the grand scheme of things, YOU count.
