Deal.

Life has a crazy way of forcing you to stand still sometimes. See I used to run nonstop- not talking cardio.

If you don’t consciously decide to deal with life as it comes- it will eventually catch up with you.

I recently listened to a speaker say forgiveness comes as a 2 step- one is forgiving what’s been done (the facts) and second is forgiving the effects of the facts- how it has affected you and others around you.

I’ve never done either of these things very well- when it comes to myself and others. I used to just choke it down- mouth everything’s okay even when it wasn’t and went about my life. What I didn’t realize at the time- took me most of my adult life too actually- is that if you don’t deal with the good, the great, the icky and the awful- literally all of it as it comes- eventually it will spew into the other areas of your life.

Today I take deeper breaths, I pray & thank God almost every morning before my day starts & I live a little differently than I used to.

Self awareness isn’t just the way you’re treating others it’s being consciously aware of how you’re treating yourself. It’s being a healthier you not just with the physical but the mental too.
