my challenge to you today:
Seek to M A G N I F Y the G O O D you see in yourself and others!
Today, I hope you C H O O S E to L O V E others more fully in the way that God first loved you.
Love. Be love. Hope. Be Hope.
Show K I N D N E S S wherever you can and minister to the needs of others.
A C C E P T and let go of that which you cannot control.
B R E A T H E in the beauty and goodness around you.
Fill your heart with loving kindness and forgiveness. Be the C H A N G E you seek.
The way of T R A N S F O R M A T I O N is not to battle the world, but to calm the battles of one’s own heart.
It takes C O U R A G E to look within and discover what life is truly about…
Empathy. Awareness. Perspective. Courage.
May you live today from a place of A B U N D A N C E. Let love flow in you and through you. There is more than enough. You are worth it!!
“We love because God first loved us.” -1 John 4:19
In our society, I often hear the saying “progress, not perfection.” But these words do not resonate for me.
Being a recovering perfectionist, I often see progress as needing to be only forward moving.
To me, “progress” says mistakes are okay as along as they don’t set me back, as long as I remain in forward motion.
However, when I hear the word “resilience,” I think of being brave and getting back up every time I fall.
I think of how it’s okay to take 1 step forward and 3 steps back.
To me, resilience says it doesn’t matter how far or fast I go. The only thing that matters is that I never give up.
“Resilience, not perfection.”
Growth is messy. Action over perfection is messy. Resilience not perfection is messy and imperfect, and that’s okay. It’s actually quite a beautiful thing.
To my reader, where has focusing on perfect progress held you back? Where can you give yourself permission to be imperfect and resilient?
