Human Beings.

We're all just human beings. And being a human being, let me tell you, is not easy. I'm trying to be the best daughter, friend, employee, ex-girlfriend, yoga instructor and person that I can be - but there are challenges that I encounter every day. Recently I've been pretty hard on myself, trying to handle things differently than I would in the past. Stop reacting, stop the expectations, and start a whole new way of life. The "yoga" way of life, for lack of a better word. But after a few days of being hard on myself, I finally said "Fuck. You're just a human being!" Give yourself some credit, forgive yourself, take it easy on yourself, give yourself a break - afterall, we are all just human beings. Though some may be quite close, No one is perfect.

"Forgiveness entails the authentic acceptance of our own worthiness as human beings, the understanding that mistakes are opportunities for growth, awareness and the cultivation of compassion, and the realization that the extension of love to ourselves and others is the glue that holds the universe together. not a set of behaviors, but an attitude."Robin Casarjian

  1. Lovely Collage of Human Beings! Yes, we must forgive ourselves everyday... the more I pay attention the more I realize this. There are so many little critiques of ourselves we hang on to and they completely limit our potential. Good thoughts Cailin; thanks for sharing. <3
