Mistakes I've been making // Personal + Encouragement

I've been noticing that I have been making the same mistakes over and over again. 

Although I think it is important to count your successes, I also think it is equally as important to know your flaws. For me its........

Being too hard on myself

Putting too much on my plate

Comparing myself to others

Okay....I'll be honest...I have way more than just these. 

.....but I'm working hard each day to work to correct these mistakes that I keep making. I guess by now you could probably call them a habit.

I have to constantly remind myself that I can only do the best that I can.  Sometimes I feel there's an elementary school teacher inside my own head "just do your best." 

But in reality that's all that we can do.... our best.

Failure is a normal thing in life and it's okay. It doesn't mean that we have actually failed, it's just means that we have found another way that doesn't work. 

Just do your best, don't be too hard on yourself, cut yourself some slack, and for goodness sake...stop comparing yourself to others!! ........ (yes, I'm telling myself this, but I'm also talking to all those smiling and nodding their head,n because you do the same thing.)

We aren't perfect but there is no one else like us, so let's start doing ourselves a favor and own being us....successes & mistakes!
