Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.
Lookit that lil face! Sweet baby girl learning how to pounce!
1. Value Compassion
You might worry that if you’re “soft” with yourself, you might become “soft”. After all, you’ve got to motivate yourself, right? Tough love, right? Actually, no! Learning to be compassionate to the self can actually make us stronger and more confident. Your whole life starts with you, and learning to be compassionate to yourself can be the start of a lot of positive change.
- Replace “I’ve got to beat myself up, otherwise I won’t get anything done,” with “Self-compassion is something I should strive towards.”
