How many times have we focused solely on the things that we haven’t done “right” rather than the things we have done well? Why are we not quick to give ourselves credit? Credit for learning something new. Credit for jumping back on the proverbial horse after falling off. Credit for having the courage to do something when we were scared out of our minds. Credit for having the courage for facing the day when we feel like we want to stay in the bed forever. Credit for achieving our goals of eating better, going to bed at a decent time, moving more, reading more, writing in our journal, loving our body, loving ourselves, loving others…the list goes on! Celebrate yourselves, Warrior!
Goals, Timelines and Journeys are things that apply and interconnect in our lives. It is not uncommon to have goals with timelines associated with them. In fact, we are often conditioned to have time frames for every thing that we do. While that is fine, we must not allow the timelines to be finite. We must leave room for adjustments. We must allow ourselves to factor in other things in our lives. We must allow ourselves the ability to change as we see fit. We must also adjust to the change that is presented to us as we go along our respective journeys. We must be open, Warrior.
It’s Wisdom Wednesday! This message that I share with you all is something that I have learned and continue to learn. As Warriors, we must be gentle with ourselves. We must be nurturing, loving, patient, kind, and forgiving. This is imperative for our growth as well as healing.
I hope that this resonates with you and fellow Warriors. Thank you for listening!
Today’s wisdom Wednesday came on as the result of so many things that we witness on a daily basis. There are so many things that we are exposed to – directly and indirectly – that greatly impacts our minds and spirits.
With all that is going on in the world, it is important to stay grounded. It is important to stay full of light. It is imperative to protect one’s psyche. It is too easy to have the emotional residue of situations or experiences; be it ours or someone else’s. Our emotional, physical and spiritual being depends on us shielding what can not grow us.
