Slice of Life 2012 - 6

I had to speak up for myself today, make sure that I shared what I need. How is someone to know my needs if I don't speak up? Yet so often I shy away from doing so. But today I chose to listen to my heart. I prayed for the right words, for the clarity of mind, for the strength (not to cry!) and that kindness and grace would infuse  our conversation. They did. It was good to stand up, to be heard and to know that whatever happens next, I am on a path that is written on my heart.

I am sad to think that compassion, kindness and grace are not as abundant in our lives as they ought to be. So now I pray that I can continue forward with the message from my tea bag and
delight the world with compassion, kindness and grace.
