Happy Day Pivoter!
It’s been a month since my last entry, but I have been doing the work while I was away. I have implemented more breaks throughout my day and I have been more intentional with my self-compassion journey. I tend to lean more into negative self-talk, because I grew up always moving onto the next thing and not celebrating the current accomplishment. That meant a long journey of comparisons and all kind of spirals of negative self-talk. What I did was just “ok” even if it took leaps and bounds for me to make the accomplishment.
How does this relate to you?
I don’t care if it took you 6 years to get a “four” year degree. Or 15 years to get out of a dead-end relationship. Celebrate that you did it! If there is breath in your body-you have time to make something happen. The Bible says:
12 Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
We don’t have unlimited days on this planet-our days are numbered. It does us no good lamenting the “woulda”, “shoulda” , “couldas” of our lives. Yes, learn from the past so we don’t repeat it., but don’t carry guilt and grief with you. Free yourself. God loves you. God loves me. Even if I have made a mistake 17172827273939 times- He is still hear guiding me and calling me higher. The same is true for you.
Today, take time out to bask in God’s love. Say aloud I am God’s Masterpiece (this is my son :Lennon’s favorite morning affirmation). God seeks to lavish His love on me daily. God will bestow the wisdom I need for this day. Use any affirmation that reminds you-that you are dearly loved and sought after. Someone literally died to have a relationship with you.
Pivot with Purpose,
