Aberdare National Park, Kenya

Today’s Friday Photo comes from Aberdare National Park in Kenya. Like these magnificent lions, I wanted to take a nap the other day but my mother’s voice rang in my ears “Don’t be lazy.” It’s easy to be judgmental of others but we are the harshest of critics of ourselves. Judgment doesn’t mean not questioning motives or preferences or weighing options – why I want to do this or that, for example. It refers to being critical or berating aspects of the self without thoroughly thinking through the context of a thought or action that is being judged. Be kinder to others, and to yourself.
