Ever get frustrated with yourself?
Yeah, me either!
Ha just kidding.
But, seriously, I have found that when I get frustrated its due to some sort of expectation I placed on myself. For example, I wanted to get 5 blogs written in one afternoon. I didn’t get any written and I was starting to feel like I was a bit of a “failure” on my to-do list.
Even as I write that I cringe at how awful that sounds and you are probably already getting ready to tell me that “it’s all going to be ok, don’t be so hard on yourself.”
And, if the shoe were on the other foot I would say the same things. But, the point is we should be able to tell ourselves these kind words.
I know that you too have been hard on yourself for not meeting your own expectations.
There are quotes and meme’s and even a past “note 2 inspire” on talking to yourself as if you were your own best friend!
But, it’s not just so that you say nice words to yourself. The thing is my friends is that we are human. We (luckily) are not perfect. We will make mistakes, miss deadlines, change our minds.
Yes, I would love for you to tell yourself you’re awesome all the time. But, it can be even simpler than that. You can just recognize you’re human!
You are a human and that’s amazing!
You will meet and miss deadlines. You will rock and you will not rock as much all the time.
And, instead of getting upset at yourself or trying to pump yourself up try to just remember that you are a human being. You’re not a robot or a superhuman.
This week, if you don’t do something you expected to do instead of wasting time beating yourself up pinch yourself to feel you are human and make adjustments to the plan!
You got this!
