I spent this weekend reading as much as I could, and here are some of my favorites. These are thoughtful and sometimes deep ruminations on compassion. Many people were not easy on themselves and wrote extremely personal posts. I applaud everyone who participated. It has been so great to read all the posts. I have selected ones that somehow resonated with me. Enjoy!

I have decided that I will post other favorites occasionally. There are so many good posts. Feel free to add ones you particularly liked in the comments.
You can check out more here.
And, of course, you can expect more compassion posts here on confessions of a broccoli addict and as part of #1000Speak.
I was browsing through this blog today, and I realized that this post from October also qualifies as a compassion post.
