This is me checking in.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


Whoever knew that starting something new would be so difficult?  I know, I know… everyone.  Sometimes, I just like to live in denial about it and think that I will be good at something from the get go or at least it won’t take me long.  I think part of my issue is consistency.  I’m not very good at it.  I’m not consistent with my kids’ bedtime routine, with my bedtime routine, with my writing, with filing all my important documents, with work, with connecting with people.  I want consistency to be something I work on.  It WILL be something I work on.  I will also learn to give myself grace.  I’m not great at that either.  I know I need to be.  I know it’s necessary.  I know that if I don’t show myself grace more that I am going to crush myself under the weight of my own expectations (recovering perfectionist, guys).  So in this season of learning to love myself, I’m also learning self-discipline and grace for myself.  What season of life are you in?  What is your season teaching you?
