best I can

Live life with an open heart. Erase judgment from your thoughts, live with compassion, and practice understanding. Keep in mind that everyone is doing the best they possibly can and realize that if they knew better, they'd do better—therefore, be gentle. Now, practice this same gentleness with yourself. Know that you're doing the best you can in every situation and honor yourself with compassion. This simple thought will help you be less critical and more appreciative of all that is.
