I know that, without my self-compassion, my ex-husband and I, and our kids, wouldn’t be in the good place that we are today.
#3 – Women who are mindful.
Women who are compassionate are people who are mindful. Women who are mindful are living in the minute, paying attention to those around them and willing to take action when necessary.
How can someone whose head is down, focused on their phone, even notice someone who is suffering? How can someone who is always looking ahead to what is next reach out and help someone who needs them in the minute? How can someone who notices, but doesn’t take action, make the difference in life of someone who needs them?
How about you? When was the last time you looked up from your phone and saw someone suffering? What did you do? Did you quickly look back down at your phone, hoping someone else would help, or did you step up and take action to help that person in need?
Keep your head up. And take action when necessary.
