Strength of Compassion – Martha Beck

by Starla J. King on August 19, 2010

I confess.  I’m a Martha Beck addict. 

Just when I think I’ve quit her, I see something else she’s done and just like that I’m sucked back in.   I suppose it could be worse, though, seeing as how she’s all about “helping people design satisfying and meaningful life experiences.”  

In case you’re not familiar with Martha Beck, (forsooth!), she’s a writer, a life coach, has a gazillion harvard degrees, brilliant sense of humor (like, splutterlaugh humor), etc. etc.  Check out her website at

Ok, anyway, what started this post today was the following video clip about Compassion.   Pretty amazing stuff here:

See what I mean?? 

So the inspiration for today — less push, more compassion = more strength!   Thoughts????

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go add Martha Beck’s blog link to the OutWrite Living website.
