I Deserve Kindness (Je Mérite De La Gentillesse)

Being kind to yourself is a crucial aspect of self-care.

It involves treating yourself with the same compassion and understanding that you would offer to anyone else.

As well as, taking small steps each day, to build a positive and compassionate relationship with yourself.


This week's affirmation is…

I Deserve Kindness

Je Mérite De La Gentillesse


Treat yourself with understanding and empathy.

Allow yourself breaks when needed.

Learn to say no and set firm boundaries to protect your time and energy.

Acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small. Remember last week? Je Mérite D’être Célébré

Engage in activities that bring you joy.

Forgive yourself for being imperfect. Make your mistakes and learn from them.

This Is Christmas

starring Alfred Enock & Kaya Scodelario

Set in London on the build up to the Christmas period, we follow Adam and Emma on the daily commute from the village of Langton into London where the same passengers are on every single day. When the train breaks down Adam takes a risk to do the unthinkable and talks to the strangers, and even ends up planning a Christmas party for everyone who takes the train!



“Don't be mad at how long it takes you to find yourself, to find your path—be kind to your heart, be kind to yourself, be kind to your process while you journey.

Joel Leon
