Grace is a word I use in almost every session. I have found as high-performing humans we are good at extending grace to others but struggle with showing it to ourselves. Our expectations are high and tolerance for not achieving is low.
The other day I was sitting at my desk, mind racing,thinking of all the things I wanted to get done and focus on and it boiled down to two categories; work and health. I paused and added Grace to the list.
Every day I set goals for both work and health. There are days I don’t get all my To Dos done for my business. Show myself Grace. There are some days I eat more chips and salsa than I should or skip a workout. Show myself Grace. Even on days I feel like I don’t make progress in either. Show myself Grace.
On a good day accomplishing all three is perfection. On a not so good day you can at least accomplish one by showing yourself Grace and coming back stronger in the next moment. Sitting around and beating yourself up and cutting yourself no slack serves no one. To ruminate on what you could or should have done wastes your precious time and holds you back from moving forward.
Show yourself Grace. Give yourself a moment. Move on stronger.
