So the year is almost over. We are in the last quarter of the year. That can mean a lot of different things for everyone. For some it may mean that you are just starting the goals you had at the New Year. No judgment! You could very well find that you are going to end the year better than where you started. Kudos to you for not giving up. Storms hit everyone and the one thing is if you are reading this, you’re still here to tell your story. So do not give up.
Regardless of where you are in your journey don’t stop reaching for your goals. There are a lot of things I wanted to accomplish and still striving for, so keep pushing. If I can offer some advice as we go into the winter months is self care. I know if I am not careful the Winter blues comes and attempts to kick my behind. The only things that saves me is self-care, my kids, goals, and blogging. Some people enter the Winter months without anything to hold them. I pray that there is some motivating force that keeps you going strong!
Self Care Tips
Keep yourself first as you serve those around you. There are days when I don’t blog because my cup needs to be reset. I need to get my life together. I am always honest about that. Social media and platforms will have you thinking that only YOUR life is bad when in reality, we are all pushing through, falling, or having to be knocked down at times. Be gentle with yourself. Stop comparing yourself to me or anyone else. I always check my cup and I always am honest about the times when I blew it. I will be blogging more about those moments as well. We need to know that we aren’t alone. The human spirit is constantly being fed this fake picture of perfection and reality is perfection is great to attempt to obtain but I believe in getting better not perfect.
2018 will be all you create. Sometimes it takes taking big girl or big boy steps in order to get what is yours! Do not be afraid that you don’t have enough resources, talent, or stamina to keep it all up. You do-your gift will make room for itself! So as you walk in life even your failures will be lessons to add to your destiny. Finish strong! Finish whole! Finish Balanced!
