Giving yourself Grace

These last few months has been a true learning experience to say the least. I would find myself in between feeling like I can take on the world in one day, to feeling like I was defeated because I could not get to everything that I had on my list . I am going to keep is Allllllllll the way real . I was burning both ends at the same time. 

 “Give Yourself Grace “

I started to think about all the things I wanted to do verse the things I made commitment to. During that exercise I learned I have more things that I am committed to that is not lining up with goals I have set for myself . I am extremely passionate of helping others and being there but I had to learn new ways to support them. 

what I am learning is that it is okay to choose your goals and still support the best way YOU CAN. 

You won’t always be a priority to others. And that’s why you have to be a priority to yourself. And be your own support system. Your needs matter. Start meeting them. Don’t wait on others to choose you. Choose yourself TODAY!- Marcandangel

I found myself struggling to find some type of balance . For a while I was still struggling because I would squeeze it in when I should have simply declined if my plate was already full. I am still finding myself with Grace and learning not to be so hard on myself. I am a Avid believer of taking inventory on what is happening in my life. I want to share a few ways I have started to give myself grace .

SAY NO 

sounds so easy right ? This was the hardest practice I had to adopt.  During a therapy session my therapist asked me Which one would come First ? My goals or making people happy. You have to be willing to say no to things that are not helping you get closer to your goals. If your plate is full simply say “Thank you for inviting me , I am sorry I can not make it at this time.” The Grace if giving yourself the time to achieve what you have in mind .

Choose You  

If I told you that everything you will ever need starts with you would you believe me ? When you see Yourself as a priority, this sets the tone to how everyone else is going to treat and perceive you . This also send signals that your value is not to be played with. Choosing you can happen in many forms such as investing in your health, education, business or anything that is important to you .

Take Inventory  

Inorder to understand where you stand you must first understand where you are . When you take inventory this also allows you to be accountable. I do inventory very often because my progress is important to me . Every so often see what is working or not working and adjust accordingly. Most importantly be easy on yourself your Doing a phenomenal job .
