This sign has always been one of my favorites along my drive on Highway 84 twice each day. Its patina, rust, & bullet holes gave it perfect character. This morning I noticed someone knocked the post down & stole the sign, & I was heartbroken. #FS3Photos
This is a #sign .
Be both #ruthless and #compassionate today. To yourself, and to others.
Can you soften, yet stay strong and true? Can you uphold your #boundaries , using #kindness and #empathy , for yourself and the other??
It's a dance, I know.
So this funny thing happens: every once in a while, my @daniellelaporte #truthbomb app starts itself on my phone. And it shows me THIS MESSAGE daily. Ruthless compassion. Every day. Until i get it. Until I embody it. Until I really remember.
And then it stops.
The app stops altogether, or maybe sends a few different messages for a few days. And then it goes back to hibernation for a few months.
And when I forget to be ruthlessly compassionate, it seems to come back.
Isn't that weird?
And sublimely brilliant?
I could uninstall the app, claiming it's buggy.
Or I could choose to notice, and pause, and reflect: where am I being ruthless, or not? Where am I being compassionate, or not? Where could I be more ruthlessly compassionate?
This is a sign. A reminder. Just a little tap on the shoulder. "Pay attention. "
And when I get it, the tap stops.
