How are you?
I have been reading Rachel Hollis’s book Girl wash your face and it is really speaking to me at the moment. I haven’t finished it yet, but any chance that I have, I will read a few pages.
I love the way that each chapter is about a lie that we believe. The lies of I’m not good enough and I should be further along by now.
The lie I should be further along by now really resonated with me. You see I have just celebrated a big something _0 birthday and at first, I was in denial of being this age.
I didn’t really want to celebrate it and I was wondering why. Then I read the chapter of -I should be further along by now and realised I didn’t want to be this age. The reason was I thought that I would have achieved a lot more before reaching this age.
But that is a lie.
Sure, there is a time and season for everything in our
lives. I believe this.
Why is it that we gravitate to what is not happening in our lives instead of celebrating all that we have achieved?
Why is it that we focus on the negative?
I have a lot to be grateful for and especially reaching this age the _0.
Why are we not celebrating every day?
A friend of mine and mentor challenged me one year to say yes. To say yes to things that normally I would go oh no I couldn’t possible to that. It was a really great year with lots of opportunity and adventures.
I feel that November and December will be the months of saying yes.
This will be my challenge.
I will not let entertain the lie of -I should be further along by now anymore.
I will not let the lie influence my life.
What are you going to say yes to in November?
Will share more soon.
