Comes From Learning,
Developing and Experiencing
I recently read an article that just jumped off the page and right at me! I heard that ding, ding bell going off in my head reading that article. I can be so clueless at times!
There is two sides, right! Mistakes and Failures versus Lessons and Growth. Do You Focus on the Mistakes and Failures? OR Do You Grow from the Lessons Learned? I know I focused in on the stress and fear at times more than the good and the positive!
How do I know what I have the ability to do and what I am capable of if I do not try and make an effort!
I know I set my expectations too high at times! I need to think in terms of possibilities and opportunities. Then be open to it and embrace it! I know I hold myself responsible and accountable to the highest standard. I need to think in terms of love, care, compassion, and kindness to myself and my whole being!
I do not live with regret though because I do try! I just talk smack and beat myself up a bit before moving forward again. I need to learn how to deal with myself and my needs when I make mistakes and experience failures. Talk about testing myself and my limits!
I know there have been times where I make mistakes and experience failures that I hope to NEVER make again! Lesson Learned! I certainly learn how to make better choices and decisions to help myself have better solutions and results for the next time.
I need to respect and love myself and stop being so critical and judgmental! My life will ebb and flow, go up and down and be a bit of trial and error too. I need to listen to myself and my needs and trust my gut intuition!
I want to be challenged, but there is challenge and there is challenges! I need to find the comfort level that works best for me. Then I can ease into those challenges and have the time I need to work those challenges. I may be able to hold of my breaking point a little longer too. I call that true personal growth!
