Over the last few years, I believe (sincerely hope) I have become more patient, understanding, and kinder to others. I see, upon reflection, I have not extended that courtesy to me.

How about you?  Do you talk to yourself in a language you would never dream of speaking to your spouse, co-worker, pet?  When you set goals, do you set yourself up for failure? Do you just keep raising the bar without even so much as a “Good job, Me,” for clearing the last height?

Two weeks into 2013, some of us are still trying to maintain our New Year’s resolutions. I made only one, which is simply to be better to people – including myself.  You should join me. You would not like it if someone were nasty to your friends, so be nice to theirs.

Now, go say something nice to yourself. I’d suggest you start with something like

Self, you are so nice to read Scorched Eyebrow Studio’s blog posts. She appreciates so much having someone as smart as Self give her that precious time.

I really do appreciate it.

Great resolution from a woman who is already wonderful. I don’t know if I can handle a MORE wonderful YOU. 😉 Self-improvement always pays dividends beyond’s oneself, though, eh?

I love reading your blog. It always brightens my day. My college President, Dr. Ski sent out a post yesterday recommending that we make it a practice to thank at least one person every day. So you get my thank you today. Thank you for blogging, and keeping my mind on the truly important things.

True indeed. We are called to be kind to ourselves though it can be quite hard.
