Today as I was walking, my mind was running a million miles through all the issues and problems in my little world. I was trying on various solutions and resolutions. I was setting limits and goals. I was everywhere but on the road walking. I was trying to figure out how to do my best.
“Be nice, be kind” my mom’s voice resonated in my head. I always thought I was supposed to be nice and kind to everyone around me. Today I realized I need to start closer to home. I need to be nice and kind to myself. By this, I don’t mean that I get to be greedy, hateful, and spoiled. What I mean is that I need to accept myself, just as I am. Awareness is dawning.

Pebble - the friendship of my neighbors to each other
Ponder - how can I stay mindful, how can I stay the course
