Widening our Circle of Compassion


Day 4 of Blogging University has seen me step out of my comfort zone to try something different. It won’t surprise many who are in my ‘Twitterverse’ to see that I have enthusiastically grasped the new skill of embedding a tweet in a post!

As a fully paid up member of the ‘life-long learning club’, I am ecstatic to learn at least one new thing everyday. Sometimes I learn big life-changing things which result in paradigm shifts with resultant changes in my way of being. Other times it could simply be a new skill, a new viewpoint or a new approach to an existing challenge. At other times, it’s simply learning that what I do is valued and that I am doing ok. At all times, I am searching for ways to make a positive difference to the lives of others. This mission to make a difference to others, enriches my own life and reminds me of the true meaning of life!

Compassionate living is at the core of my existence. It must be in my DNA and so I actively seek new ways to be compassionate in my life. Of course, I’m only human so it won’t be too much of a surprise when I admit that I don’t always succeed to be compassionate under certain circumstances. However, that’s when the real test of my compassion is displayed. That’s when I must show self-compassion and give myself the time to regroup and come back even more determined to say sorry, admit my failings and do better next time. That’s when I widen my circle of compassion to ensure that it is all-inclusive.

Albert Einstein eloquently states that we must widen our circle of compassion to include all living things and nature in this embedded tweet…👇🏽

Join me as we take up the challenge and widen our own circles of compassion and start a compassion revolution. The world certainly needs it, don’t you think?

Until next time…😉

  2. Your blog really stands by the idea of “circle of compassion” in the way your writing reflects the sweet nature and outlook by which you publish each article out here. The core idea of the blog really captures the beauty we all seek to achieve and impart in the world around us and reading more of it will, I’m sure, make me even more appreciating towards life as I see it now. 🙂
