Explore Keys to Lasting Happiness
Kindness & Compassion
note from Lexie
Part four is about taking what you have learned and implementing it moving forward. “Happiness is a practice not a promise” – Dr. Jay Kumar, and I believe loving kindness, compassion, empathy and equanimity are key factors to finding peace and happiness within yourself.
My hope for you is that you will reach a place within your own process where you will give yourself the kindness and compassion you need (and deserve) to be whole again and find new meaning in your life.
Love and blessings to you. Lexie
