I love to drink tea. I also love when the tag at the end of tea bag string has a message. Today’s tea read, the gate to happiness is self-compassion. I immediately thought to myself, “I hold the key.”

Why are we usually hardest on ourselves?

Today, soften your eyes and see yourself through a lense of compassion. Imagine you were giving advice to a friend with compassionate, caring words. Create this same loving dialogue for yourself, and unlock your gate to happiness.

AFFIRM: In a state of compassion, I find happiness.
