I heard this mantra from Judith Lasater, during a conversation with Elena Brower. She uses it when she catches herself in a less than ideal moment, thought pattern, habit, etc.
“How human of me…”
Gentle, compassionate, tender bow – to yourself + your humanness – when you need a dose of loving forgiveness, instead of judgement, criticism, etc.
I have been enjoying it in moments after I have : eaten too much chocolate, harshly reacted instead of thoughtful responded, wasted time mindlessly scrolling, noticed my heart closed instead of open…
Grateful for those few words, that remind me – I am human.
