Be Gentle With Yourself

Buddha Sitting

Be gentle with yourself;

trust the process of your life.

We are all peaceful warriors-in-training.

Perfection is not a prerequisite

for life on earth.

While we live,

we continue to make mistakes

and learn from them.

We were born

not to be ideal,

but to be real –

not to become someone else,

but to become ourselves.

We have all made a mess of things,

but nothing is less important

Than the score at halftime.

By accepting our humanity

we awaken our spirituality.

Acknowledging our failures

may be the greatest triumph of all.

– Dan Millman, Living on Purpose
