I definitely want to share that I mess up ALOT and that I tend to forget that I am suppose to make mistakes along the way. Mistakes are highlights that show exactly what I need to work on the most. God has a way of showing me my flaws ASAP and I don't always like it lol but I know He does it so I can be a better person. Forgiving myself and others is the 1st step...perfection is not real. It's just like when you start a new job, you make plenty of mistakes in the beginning but make less as time goes on.
I also have to remind myself that it is not okay to be mean to people who have been mean to me...2 wrongs never make anything right. It's okay to respond with love and peace...it is not always easy and I don't think anything should be "too easy" anyway.
We all have different views and perspectives on what we think is right, but if it costs us to hurt others in anyway then we must adjust our lenses and make changes.
I truly believe that everyone has the ability to change; I also believe that if someone does not want to change then it is okay to send them love and to keep it moving. All this is to say that no matter what chapter of your life you are in right now, keep learning and keep growing. Life is full of new beginnings, there will always be new opportunities and new blessings so keep being your best. The challenges along the way are there to mold your character, so don't give up when things get rocky.
God is my go-to when I am in need of help...pray and ask for help and then take action and responsibility.
Change can be uncomfortable but push through it, you are not alone and your new way of thinking will propel you to new levels. Keep improving and don't beat yourself up if you mess up....we all do and it's okay to own up to it as long as you learn from it and do better.
Lots of love!
