We tend to get caught up in the day-to-day routines or chaos and neglect ourselves—remember to choose yourself. Self-care is imperative. Be intentional about pouring into yourself, you cannot pour into others if you are empty.
You are doing an amazing job.
Don’t focus on what is not going right. Take a minute to appreciate what is going right and the role that you played in it. You showed up and did what was within your power. Find a mirror, look yourself in the eye and say, “You are amazing and you are doing an amazing job!”
Do what you can and let go of the rest. Stop holding onto the worry, stress, and guilt of things that are beyond your control. What’s done is done, you cannot change it or them. Do what is within your power and leave the rest. Let it go—don’t sabotage your sanity for things that you have no control over.
Words have power, we have the ability to change the trajectory of our lives, and the lives of others, through what we speak. Choose your words wisely. Is something bothering you? Speak life to that situation, person, feeling, etc. Remain silent and avoid speaking negatively if you don’t feel that you can speak life. Make sure that the words that you sow will bring forth good fruit because the words that we speak are like seeds planted in the ground, they bring forth fruit in due season.
Do you feel frustrated about where you are in life? Pause and reflect on where you were a few years ago, a year ago, or even just a month ago. You are not where you used to be. Appreciate how far you have come, you have grown and learned some valuable lessons that will help you walk into your season of better.
Protect your peace.
Peace is so valuable. Be mindful of what you allow to have access to you. Watch what you hear, watch what you say, watch what you see, and watch who you entertain. If it disturbs your peace remove it from your life.
I hope that this has encouraged you. Remember to choose yourself. You are doing an amazing job. Let go of responsibility for things beyond your control. Speak life and reflect on the fruit of your seeds. Always protect your peace. LOVE YOU.
