Let’s get real for a second here. You with me?
The fact of life is that we all make mistakes. Even though I hate to admit it sometimes, I make mistakes. And on a daily basis, at that!
I would just relish in the fact that ‘I am perfect,’ but I’m not, So I’ll have to get over it. We all will. Because nobody’s perfect
So now that I’ve made it a well-known fact that we’re not perfect, why do we all seem to beat ourselves up when we make a mistake?
It makes no sense to me.
I am the world’s worst at this too!
If I blurt out something I ‘shouldn’t have,’ or do something out of character, I am the meanest person to myself. I believe that “I should have known better” and that “I should never do that thing ever again!”
Even if it were something as little as eating a bite of cake when I promised to lose 5 pounds before that one person’s wedding.
(I totally just made that up, but whatever. We’ll go with it. You still with me?)
So the point of my post is this: STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP SO MUCH.
I don’t care what happened.
Just let it go. Be free. Be gentle. And be kind (to yourself, especially!)
Life is not as serious as we make it out to be.
Find your joy.
Find your laughter.
Laugh at yourself, instead of criticize.
Love with your whole heart. Your entire being.
Live a more playful and joy-filled life.
(You’ll be happier and healthier for it too!)
