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.
