#TerrificTuesday: Be Gentle With Yourself

“Tell yourself you’re beautiful daily. Be gentle with yourself. Eat carbs without guilt and remember that life is too short to worry about what others think!” – Demi Lovato

I thought to bless you with those inspiring words by the musician. I find them to be significant and illuminating. Because, really, you need to be gentle with yourself. Be gentle with your decisions life. Be gentle with the mistakes you make. Be gentle with your convictions and how you approach others. Be gentle with the short or long arm of luck and grace on your life. Be gentle when you compare yourself with others. Be gentle with your failures. Be gentle even with your success. Time and chance, the Bible says. Will everybody have a moment of greatness? Probably not. But everybody will have moments  of opportunities. Be gentle when you miss yours, still.

Just be gentle. Your spirit thrives better in a state of calm. Your soul lives longer in quietness.

Even in the most unlikely places. Yes, Lagos traffic, especially! Be gentle.

I know. I know. Tough call, abi? Take a deep breath when the danfo driver becomes a nuisance (ugh!). Stay calm. And let no one steal your terrific Tuesday and the message it brings.

Love yourself. Be gentle
