May is Mental Health Month. This would be a good month for me to practice giving myself and others grace. Here’s a link to a very nice article about grace. It’s really about giving each other a break from slamming one another and letting go—sort of like what you need to do in juggling. The author of the article on grace suggests a short list of ways to practice grace. They’re just the guidance I welcome for Mental Health Month and any other month for that matter.
The one about compassion and forgiving myself and others is difficult to do. I should do it anyway.
Buttoning my lip before criticizing, complaining, or venting other harsh utterances is a nice way to avoid the slamming mode I see in the news every day.
It’s tough not to expect the worst from others, especially when you read the news. Hey, let’s stop reading the news.
I don’t get much recognition, and that’s actually a good thing. Sometimes the last thing I need is attention.
I can think of many persons who have probably gently and silently helped me over the years.
While it may feel good to get my digs in on people I don’t agree with, it’s not satisfying for very long. People do remember how you made them feel.
Let’s give each other grace. We all need a break.
