I’m sure that I looked rediculous running down that familiar road. It was a short and sweet run but it meant something huge to this girl. I could do it. It didn’t matter that I ate a terrible lunch, hadn’t exercised in days or that I was sick thinking about actually running. Because I did it.
I’m a big jerk to myself. Seriously, I have a long reel of negative thoughts replaying in my mind throughout the day and its been on repeat for months..no years. My insecurity stems from a place in my heart that I continue to water with daily reminders that I’m no good, and never will be. I spend way too much time focusing on past mistakes (The older I get the longer the list) and mulling over what I should have said or done. Its an awful way to live when we were meant for freedom!
However, lately i’ve been living different. I have been speaking kind things to myself and asking God to help me love myself (not in a selfish way but in a good, thankful for who I am kind of way).
We can be judgemental of ourselves and often our critical spirits lead to dragging hearts. Not fun!
What are you giving yourself a hard time about today?
Isn’t it about time you asked God to help you learn grace? Thinking of you today!
