Morning everyone how are you?
So typically after having posted last Wednesday about my new blogging routines I suffered from computer issues and missed Friday’s post! But I’m not going to feel guilty about it.
Because this year I have decided to remove the word guilt and all it’s residing bitter feelings from my life.
I spoke to a very close friend recently. The type of friend who gets what I am saying because they’ve been there too. And I told him all about the new attitude I’m trying to adopt, the changes I want to make and all the dark and twisty things that had been inside my head towards the end of last year. And he listened and he understood, and he knew there was no miracle cure and he said “I think you just need to stop being so hard on yourself.”
No miracle cure but those words could not have been truer.
We all have things about ourselves we’d like to change but we shouldn’t feel guilty about them. Our worst bits and bad habits are just a big a part of us as the good bits are. They are the bits that push us further that make us human. If we all woke up perfect tomorrow what would we do with ourselves???
Recently I’ve been indulging in a few guilt free pleasures. One too many soya lattes, another slice of vegan chocolate cake, spending money that should probably be put to one side on going to see friends, and in doing so I’ve lived far more happily than I would have done if I’d played it perfect.
And this week I intend to do the same. Because Guilt is a big feeling, don’t waste it on the little things.
Live life & don’t be so hard on yourself x
