The focus for today is: I choose to be gentle and kind to myself.
What kind of friend are we to ourselves? We judge ourselves, criticize ourselves, put ourselves down, and often times, think we're just not good enough... We can be our own worst enemy.
Would we talk to a child, or to a friend, the way we talk to ourselves? I hope not. We tend to be more accepting and loving towards a child, and to our friends, than we are to ourselves.
Be your own best friend. Give yourself encouragement and a pat on the back for the small successes of life. Be gentle for any failures or foibles -- they are simply part of the learning process. Be your own cheerleader and life coach. Love yourself and be gentle and kind to yourself.
Today's Daily Inspiration was excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:
This is Marie T. Russell, publisher of InnerSelf, wishing you a day of being kind to yourself (today and every day)
Join me again tomorrow for the Daily Inspiration and focus of the day.
Today, we choose to be gentle and kind to ourselves.

Animal Whispers Empowerment Cards: Animal Wisdom to Empower and Inspire
by Madeleine Walker
This divination card deck brings empowerment and inspiration in tune with the rhythms of nature and the planet from the animal kingdom. Personally gleaned and intuited by Madeleine Walker as she traveled far and wide to meet and communicate with both wild species and domestic animals, these missives "whisper" the animals' tidings of love and compassion and dispatch their greatest wish - for humanity to find reempowerment so we can finally integrate into interspecies unification.
Daily usage of different animal cards enables access to profound messages that pinpoint current, troublesome life situations and foster renewed self-belief and release of self-doubt. Reproductions of the 45 lavishly illustrated cards and expanded interpretations contained in the companion booklet further enhance the experience.
