The Compassion Challenge

Happy Super Soul Sunday!

In order to embrace February, which historically has never been my favourite month, I decided create a self love soul driven challenge to make the month more enjoyable.  February is heart month in everyway – it’s heart disease awareness month, it’s Valentines, it’s even a “2” month (the number of relationships, also 2018 is a “2” year – so double 2!).  It’s a month to focus on relationships – with the world, with others, and with yourself.

As I started to think about self love and self worth, one word strongly came to mind – COMPASSION.  It’s a beautiful concept that embodies love, kindness, awareness and empathy.  In order to be compassionate, we need to be aware of the environment around us and the people in it.  We need to be present and focused in the present.  It’s being kind without expecting anything in return, including the need for acknowledgement of being kind. To evoke compassion we need to let go of the traumas and people that hurt us, and see them with empathy rather than contempt.  It comes with gratitude, appreciation, and an optimistic excitement that everything is possible and everyone is love.

I’ve create a workbook, “The Compassion Challenge“, for others to use and share in order to evoke and embrace the positive vibes of compassion.  The first week is about release past traumas and embracing your true self (you need to connect with yourself first before you can completely connect with others) and the second week is about restoration (we have to practice compassion for ourselves, which is self care, so we are our best selves when helping others).  Read it, work through it, share it, embrace it.

Sending you all healthy happy compassionate vibes for this month of self love and appreciation!!!!
