I hope your week is going well so far and you’ve been enjoying the content I’ve been putting up for you guys. I recently did some spring cleaning of my physical space and I feel so much lighter. I hope you’re doing well too.
The first quarter of this year has not necessarily been the smoothest of them all but I’m learning that that’s okay, really okay. In this first quarter of the year, I’ve been reminded by the people closest to me that it is really okay to not be okay. That I can just feel whatever I feel without trying to be okay for everyone else.
Re-learning my gentle has involved a lot of vulnerability where I try to actively put myself first, as hard as that may be. Re- learning my gentle has also meant taming my mind from over analyzing everything. This has definitely been the hard part but I have constant reminders around me for this now so I’m being patient with myself about it.
A number of times this year, this has meant doing things that make me slightly uncomfortable without thinking through reasons why I shouldn’t do those things. These things that make me uncomfortable have always ended up well and made me happier. So even on the days that I let my mind take over and end up avoiding these things that make me uncomfortable, I cut myself some slack because gentle. Relearning my gentle means its okay to cut myself some slack.
I hope you’re doing something that’s good for you, that makes you happy and I hope you’re being gentle with yourself about the process of getting where you want to be. If you aren’t there yet, then that’s okay. I hope this serves as your reminder to do that thing again. Be patient with yourself, wait it out.
“So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you, and He will place you on a firm foundation.” 1 Peter 5:10
