Allow yourself to make mistakes

I’ve always been a goody two shoes. I have always wanted the most perfect journey. Let’s say that the more things I do RIGHT. The better I feel about myself. Its a lot to base your entire worth on.. Isn’t it?

I remember when I thought I made the biggest mistake of my life…

I had set a standard for myself and wanted to achieve it but unfortunately that wasn’t the journey that I was set out to walk.  I beat myself up for months. Condemned myself for a year and a half. I literally could not find it in me to forgive myself. I had always set extremely high standards for myself that when I failed to achieve this. It broke me. It hurt me. It left me questioning my worth and whether any of this is worth it. 

Until this year, I finally learned to forgive myself. I finally learned that I too have a factory default. I don’t have to be perfect. It’s way too much of a stressful life to live. Worst part? It makes you lose focus of things that are actually going right in your life.

So when my mom and I were sitting under a tree last week. She uttered the words, “Mistakes happen but how you learn from it matters. “ 

I knew I needed to share this with you. ♥️

Stay blessed.
