And when you don’t have it to give, give what you can.
I am so driven sometimes I have to remember to park the car. I work too much, I go too hard, and I’m annoyed when my body just says NO. And honestly, it has said NO more times than I’d like to admit in the last 6 months. I chose this photo b/c this was taken the week in August when I was on medical leave. I hadn’t left the house in days after having panic attacks from excruciating pain, going from doctor to doctor and finally being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. A disorder that is so misunderstood.
And YES, IT IS SO REAL. In this picture, I could barely lift my arms, a task that I used to take for granted. Now, some days, I can barely do my hair. That’s why this challenge is so delayed. I couldn’t type. But just like the day in this picture, I showed up anyway. My mom says, when you feel bad, just put on red lipstick and go. So today, there’s no lipstick, but I am showing up to give you, although delayed, today’s challenge: GIVE YOURSELF GRACE.
So on DAY 1️⃣5️⃣ of our 3️⃣0️⃣ day challenge, you will:
Show yourself some grace. Some days you can and some you can’t and that is ok. Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about so show grace to others too.
Revisit your INTENTION and AFFIRMATION before you begin today’s challenge!
