TODAY I LEARNED: A scorpion can hold its breath for one week.
It’s been over a week since we lost Jinx. So many other things have happened between then and now. Experiencing loss changes the way you look at death. Loss turns what you thought you knew into something you never expected. It can happen at any time and to anyone. I’ve said it before but, we are all going to die. It sounds depressing…I know, yet it’s best not to dwell on something you can’t change. And besides, I know there’s more to life than just death. We will start again. Have faith that there’s something else on the other side. 😊
When it comes to the blogging process, lately I haven’t been as avid as I once was. Life just happens sometimes and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. There are deaths, events, sudden stops, and other things you just don’t foresee coming. I’ve beaten myself up because I haven’t been writing every day, but honestly, I can cut myself some slack. Life can be a bitch and we all know it. We shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves. I read something recently that really made me look at myself in a new light. It mentioned that we need to be gentle with how we talk to ourselves. We should be gentle with our thoughts and how we think about ourselves and honestly, it’s helped me more than anything. It reminded me of something I forget often. Don’t try to be perfect, just be the best you can be.
Bottom line: you don’t have to beat yourself up. You don’t have to go all in and say it’s just one way. There are going to be times when you just don’t get stuff done. It’s as simple as that and it’s good to know that it’s okay if you don’t complete something on time, forget to pick something up, or just don’t finish that blog post. Go easy on yourself and your thoughts. It’s easier said than done and it’s certainly a process, but the only way to be better is to try and keep moving forward. None of us are perfect. And we certainly shouldn’t try to be. We should only do our best. It doesn’t matter how fast you move…what matters is that you are moving. ❤
Blessed Be )O(
