Doing good, being kindhearted and compassionate to others is a saintly way of life. But that way of life must be balanced with being good, kindhearted and compassionate with yourself. Stop thinking that saying no once in a while is a selfish act. I am calling you to freedom from all the “shoulds” and “have to’s” that you have allowed into your life. When you can let go of those lies, then and only then will you know what your soul needs for nourishment. I am sending you the grace you will need to discern your truth.
God help us to live slowly: To move simply: To look softly: To allow emptiness: To let the heart create for us. Amen - Prayer by Michael Leunig
