This morning I didn’t like my life.
I didn’t feel like admiring my husband or tending to my business.
This morning, my life wasn’t perfect.
Do you have those days where you get up and you’re in a foul mood? It happens to me every once in a while.
Years ago, this would have totally rattled me. “What’s wrong with me?” I would have asked, “Why am I not in a good mood?” Back then being happy and cheerful was the only measurement I had to making sure I was on the right track.
Nowadays, I am much more relaxed. I learned to go with the flow and, if necessary, with my grumpiness. I found out that life isn’t always perfect, that bad days are temporary and that letting go is the fastest way to recovery.
You don’t have to be a model citizens every day. You will have bad days. Sometimes you may offend someone or say something hurtful. Maybe you pressured a client who you were trying to impress or maybe you didn’t pay attention to your child when it really needed you.
The hardest part is to forgive yourself in those moments. Nobody likes to face their flaws.
But you know what, they are part of your wonderfulness and I think accepting them is what makes you more human.
When you embrace your short-comings you’ll become more authentic and more confident. And, it’ll give others permission to make mistakes as well. Yay 🙂
Not being perfect isn’t something you have to overcome. It’s what makes you real.
As always, thank you for reading.
