“I’m talking about the repairs made within yourself…like when you really begin to have patience and kindness toward yourself so that you can begin to live in a way that is sustainable.” ~ Kaisa Ullsvik Miller
I thought this would be a fitting quote today since I spent the morning being overly self-critical, shame on me for that! Wait, was that self-critical? This is one of my favorite quotes, and it was said by an old co-worker in an interview about one of her new poetry books. Sustainability is frequently used in the context of the earth, to use the earth in a way that we do not do damage, and can continue to use and grow from it, so I like the image that comes to my mind when I think of living a sustainable life. To me it is a strong life, that can give to others, but first I must treat myself accordingly so I have that to give.
