[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Every moment is an invitation to show more compassion

We all just need to be more loving. Every moment is an invitation to show
more compassion, to be a better version of ourselves. It's simple enough,
of course, but not always easy. Any moment we get it right, though, is a
moment when we help enlighten the world. Iyanla

Went off the beaten path today before my first radio interview. I visited a
shelter, they feed the people on the streets presently without a
home,provide them with medical attention and get this, a place where they
can collect their mail/post! I asked the lady, " A place to collect their mail?" She said let us not
forget they are human only without a place to live. It made me stop and
think, we are all humans, we are all people and a little bit of compassion
goes a long way, who knows? we don't know what everyone's story is.
Changing the way I describe this brings a different perspective. They are
presently without a home, rather than they are homeless. Yea, a total
reminder that we all have a story, we are all on a journey and anything can
happen along the way for the lesson to be learned as all things are lessons
that God will have us learn.

Ok just on a different note altogether... Running is a great way for me to see my new surroundings, I decided to take
a run this morning, I was able to see the place from a different
perspective, the trees, the small pond, the grass, the people. Get the vibe
of the place! and the vibes can't done....

One book reading and book signing event this morning followed by my second
radio interview this afternoon! It's all good!

Peace!
