Today I had two separate conversations with two separate women from totally different friend circles. We spent a lot of time talking about our lives, as women do. Griping about our small problems and being thankful for all the other amazingness around us.
Both women left me with the same message: don’t be so hard on yourself.
Forgive the fact that you skipped that last hill on your run. For leaving the dishes dirty in the sink. For laying in bed at 9pm instead of going out for a night with friends. For that extra scoop of ice cream.
I hold myself to some pretty strict standards, but maybe it’s ok if I don’t meet them every time. Maybe no one besides myself even notices the difference!
I’ve been trying this for a couple of months now. It works. So just relax your standards a bit … I promise you won’t miss them.
Big hug and a kiss- Ash
