Being Okay

Being More Open

I know the one thing I do for myself is try! I use to feed into the mind set of SOME DAY and then throw myself a pity party when things did not work in my favor. Hello! NOTHING will be in my favor if I do not even try. Start TODAY!

Accepting My Mistakes and My Failures

On this journey of self I came upon a pretty significant roadblock; failure! A huge part of this whole perfection mind set of mine is not wanting to make mistakes or even fail. There is also that wanting everything to be right too. I need to be okay with that and be more open to learning and growing from those mistakes and failures!

I already do not care for rejection! Then there is wrapping my mind around failure too! I am the type of person that sees failure as the end to something. Instead of the beginning, the possibilities and the opportunities. I see it as a personal attack and a  shake down or even a take down!

I have to remind myself that making mistakes and experiencing failures may lead to good things in my life! I am my worst enemy and criticizer as well as my biggest judger and rejecter. I have to give it my time and my energy. I have to go with it and see where it leads me. I have to not give up when the going gets tough!

Embracing Who I Am

Who Is Challenging Who? Who Is Chasing Who?

I think I do pretty well in picking myself up and dusting myself off! However, I usually do not pick up what put me down and just move on to the next thing. How will I ever know what I can do and what I want if I do not get out there and just do it, go for it and achieve it! I just have to start and take action.

I am learning to lean into that discomfort and not be overwhelmed by the unknowns! I cannot grow as a person if I just choose to live in comfort and ease. I do like stability and security though. I do like setting my level of risk too. I enjoy a bit of a challenge, especially if it motivates and stimulates as well as satisfies and fulfills me! I enjoy working through the process and problem solving.

The GREATEST gift I can give myself is to believe in myself! This includes listening from within, following my heart and trusting my gut. I need to make a commitment to myself in being there for myself in EVERYTHING that I do! This includes being true to who I am, believing in my self worth, trusting that I am enough, and just having faith in myself.
