Here it is...give yourself the grace to FAIL GREATLY! When we fail and mistakes, we always learn from them. We may have to learn a few times, but we always learn, then we never go back to the old way. Every journey has a road we must travel. We need to turn right or left, go straight or back track, we may even have to go around a corner or up or down a hill. Does not matter the road because there is always something there for us to learn and understand about ourselves.
We all have the holidays that are upon us. We are starting to map out the dinners and the parties that we will be attending, along with the treats that will be sent to us as gifts from our friends and neighbors. We are coming into the time of year where we will be celebrating quite a bit. If you fail greatly on this part of the journey, that is okay. You will know what to do for next time. What is important is who we are with when we are celebrating. You may fail, but the people who you are with will see something quite different. They will see a woman who can be in any situation and still have the time of her life. That is what is important. Enjoy yourself while you are still on this journey. Prepare the day before an event and the day after. You will know that what you enjoyed taking into your body at the time will not plant itself on your body. You will learn that you will be able to continue the holiday season looking and feeling confident.
Think about the quote today. Who dares to fail greatly can achieve greatly. What an amazing statement. If you think about it, most people don't achieve greatness right out of the gate...they have their moments of failure that they learn from. This is in all of us. On this journey I have failed many times....however, I am learning what works and doesn't work for me and I am achieving greatly. I am down 46 lbs. and what is most important, I see it and I am proud of my accomplishments. I still have 200 days to release the other 30 lbs. Again, we are achieving greatly.
Give yourself the grace not to do this journey perfectly. Make as many mistakes as you can to keep you moving forward. Have an amazing day my friends. Until we meet again.
