I’ve been a little lax lately in a few aspects of my life: healthy eating, exercising (though not entirely my fault and I will address this soon), cleaning and keeping up with Fashionably Kate. And I’ve been very harsh on myself for being so lazy. But it hasn’t done me any good. It’s only made me feel worse about myself and it has not inspired me to get back on track.
When I saw this motto, it gave me permission to forgive myself for the past few weeks. I think that we all need to be a bit kinder to ourselves. I’m not saying we give in to every excuse. It is important to eat right, exercise, and keep a clean living area. It’s also important to indulge your favorite past times; writing and creating content is one way I do that.
But it is never good to punish yourself if you don’t feel like you have it in you at the moment. So this Monday I am going to say thank you for this gift of a brand new week, take a deep breath, forgive myself for slacking, smile and start over.
