Lately my life has been chaotic and that’s putting it nicely. In the middle of this immensely painful season, we (my family as a unit and me by myself) are going through some major changes – some great, some not as great.
I was getting really down on myself because when I had my vision for my blog, I wanted to post 1-2 times a week. Clearly, I haven’t done that and subsequently, I have majorly disappointed myself. When I disappoint myself, I can’t let it go. I’m so hard and down on myself (I know some of you feel me here) because I always expect so much more of myself. But I’m learning, or at least trying to learn, to allow myself the space to make mistakes and fall short and giving myself grace in those moments. No one is harder on me than me. So no one can let me off the hook of disappointment except me. Today, in all things – blogging, parenting, work, life – I’m choosing grace. I’m terrible at it, guys. But I’m choosing to be as intentional as possible to try to breathe in grace and exhale stress and anxiety. Let’s be intentional together.∞
