The Fine Wine Philosophy of Self-Love
Have you ever been too tough on yourself? Maybe once or twice? Yep, thought so. Spiritual teacher Caroline Myss says she's hard on herself, too. But this weekend, on Super Soul Sunday, she told Oprah: "I'm really good at also owning that I've become a pretty good person. I think of myself now as fine wine."
For perfectionists, that concept—that we can criticize errors and accept that, like a good merlot, we're gotten better as we've aged, and even become pretty darn good—can be hard to swallow. "Good, yes," we say, "but good enough?" Caroline and Oprah's conversation is a great reminder that being where you are right now is very much worth celebrating.
