Self-Compassion

Re-post of one of my favourite posts! It resonated with many readers too. As classic today as it was when first published in Summer 2015. If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.

The Human Touch❤️✍🏾 by Nichole McIntosh

Headspace – the value of thinking time in a fast-paced world.

Where do you start? Which is more important? Do you wait to … Continue reading Headspace – the value of thinking time in a fast-paced world.
