Unconditional Gentleness

“Unconditional confidence really means unconditional gentleness,
and yes,
we can train so that we are gentle with ourselves in the face of whatever is happening.”
Pema Chodron
Wow……what a great definition of the process of being confident……we are confident because we are unconditionally gentle with ourselves no matter what.  It is the ‘no matter what’ that challenges us.  We can do it some times and with some things but when the pedal hits the metal…….we can fall right off the gentleness train. So let’s bring this reminder more deeply into our awareness…….no matter what…….we can ask ourselves…..am I being my very own best friend right now?  Andrea
