Battles We Have With Ourselves Because of Our Mistakes

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

Our biggest battles are the ones we wage with ourselves.

We become frustrated, depressed, sad, and angry because of mistakes we’ve made

or ways in which we feel we’ve said or done the wrong things.

It’s much easier for us to forgive the actions of others or at the very least understand

the reasoning for what was said or done by someone else.

We downplay our accomplishments and wonder why no matter what we do or say it is

never enough.

We MUST celebrate our accomplishments no matter how small WE think they are.

If we don’t acknowledge the steps we take in life we will not see the value of what we do

and neither will anyone else.

Celebrate for yourself.

Acknowledgement is powerful.

We are here a short time and the more we celebrate

the sweeter the journey.

Stand up for yourself always. Wage battle only when necessary.

If you make a mistake get back up, right away, instead of beating yourself up.

Avoid harshly judging yourself as it will only make you feel worse about the situation.

Be kind to yourself and think of practical ways you can do better next time the situation comes up.

If someone was harmed as a result of your mistake ask for their forgiveness.

Don’t waste time worrying about something you can’t change.

Move forward beginning today.
