Thoughts, Tips, Ideas and Tricks to live your best life
Today's article is inspired by two people a coworker, and one of my good friends. At the start of the year I wrote that I would write a new article every week. Its been three months since that article... I've been dating, am an auntie to be, and with my job which poses a serious challenge to dating, its tough to squeeze in taking care of my own life on the less than one day a week, which I have to cram all of that into. Never mind catching up on sleep. I imagine this is what mom's feel like.
I was talking about this with a friend, who like me is also trying to build a new career on the side of her full time job, never mind the social life or peace of mind. And she was saying she just came to peace with it, she's OK that she'll never be a super clean person or be the type that cooks all the time... And that was such a big reminder for me. When I heard and her words and felt that acceptance in my body I felt so much relief. Its OK if my house is a mess even though I'm building an organizing business. Its OK if my mail is piled up and only the bills are dealt with. Its OK, if I'm struggling to find time for all of the important people in my life, since I'm not home half of the month, and trying to build a new relationship. Sometimes life is like that; and when I heard my friend's words I let it be OK, that when I am home, I feel like my life is a mess.
I share this with you, the public, because I want you to also try on the idea of forgiving yourself for whatever you have been trying to be or accomplish but in your eyes have not succeeded yet. This web page and philosophy all began because I had many habits that I didn't like and knew the best way to change them was to make the tiniest change I could and commit to it until I forgot about it. But for right now, I'm practicing forgiveness and I'd like to offer this idea to you. Like Dr. Wayne Dyer (listening to him yesterday) said when talking about Dowisim, there is a time for feeling happy, there is a time for feeling frustrated, there is a time for feeling sad, there is a time for feeling overwhelmed, there is a time for feeling ecstatic or euphoric. In my life momentarily, there is a time for feeling overwhelmed, there is a time for my house being a mess, and there is a time for having to come back to my own philosophy just to find time to squeeze in a workout or meditate, which sometimes is just 5 minutes a day. And its all OK :)
In the moment of hearing and truly accepting my friend's words I was practicing forgiveness to myself and it feels like a weight has lifted off my shoulders. I want this for you too!
So I'd like to thank my coworker, who inspired me to write. Just because I told you about this website, that reignited my excitement about it, when it fell by the wayside because of life. Thank you <3
Love to all,
I'm very passionate about a lot of things, often trying to incorporate all of it into my life!
