In a society where women are always expected to have it together, we tend to be the hardest on ourselves. This is where grace comes in. Grace for ourselves and grace for others. Rather than letting the weight of the world rest on your shoulders, remind yourself to operate in grace. Here’s how.
Say No To Perfectionism
Perfectionism is a grace killer. Your family loves you regardless if you accidentally drop the eggs on the kitchen floor or if you leave the dishes in the sink until the morning. Stop feeling like you “failed” and let grace intervene.
In The Workplace
Is your to-do list a mile long? Are you trying to finish your work while also trying to find time to help your co-worker finish her to-do list? Slow down. Sit down and make realistic deadlines for yourself. Prioritize and allow yourself to be okay if some of the things on your list get moved to another day.
Show Grace To Others
Lastly, don’t forget to extend grace to other people. It’s very easy to get so caught up in our own lives that we forget that people might be going through a tough time too. By extending grace to others, you will start to see a shift in your attitude,
Challenge yourself today to be open to grace. It’s amazing how freeing it is when you find the balance between challenging yourself to grow while still allowing grace to operate in your daily life.
