This past week was busy for me.?
Every day after work I had plans to write a blog, read a book or work on my website and it did not get done. ?
Every day last week, life happened, nothing particularly crazy- things just randomly kept popping up. By the time I finished work, working out and preparing dinner it was time to shower and get ready for bed only to wake up and do the same thing the next day.
I was so frustrated, I felt I hadn’t made any progress and had wasted time as it is that intangible resource that once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.
***Side note: I’m still missing this hour of sleep from daylight savings. *** #springforwardwoes ?
Storytime: I was texting with a friend this week, expressing my disdain for my lack of planning and how I hadn’t gotten much accomplished. Graciously, my friend texted me the kindest message, that read, ”It’s okay to have days like that sometimes”.
At that moment, I was reminded that sometimes I need to give myself grace. I’m guilty of feeling like I have failed or like I haven’t done as much as I’ve wanted to in a given week, but I am learning to show myself grace.
Grace to remind me, life happens. Grace to remember I may not complete everything on my to-do list, every meal isn’t going to be healthy and I may not get to the gym as often as I intended.
Grace to know I am flexible enough to realize I’m human.
Grace to know I’m going to mess up and make mistakes, a ton of them; however, I’m not going to wallow in them.
I swiftly get back up and keep pressing forward.
As an outward expression to show myself grace, I took myself on a date this week and went out for dessert too. I had a bomb lemon tart! ?
This week will be better as I continue to pursue my goals and purpose.
How do you show yourself grace?
“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”
Psalms 103:8 KJV
Thank God for Grace!
Yes! I’m grateful for grace!
This really hit home. I was meditating on the word grace last night and just had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. God is so amazing. Keep enjoying that grace sis!!!!
Yes, he never cease to amaze me! ??????
