Give Yourself Grace

Standard

For only the second or third time since I started this blog several years back, I’ve missed a Friday post.  Under normal circumstances, I’d be upset about that.  But right now, I think it is so incredibly important for us all to give ourselves grace.

I mean grace in this sense from the Oxford English Dictionary: “To favour (a person) with permission to do something; to permit, allow.”

And what we are all permitting and allowing ourselves, is the room to make mistakes, to fail, to not meet our own expectations, and to get things wrong sometimes.

We should also give ourselves grace to feel whatever we may be feeling, but that’s a separate conversation.

So for today, I’m going to give myself grace, and I’m going to work on a post for next week, and that’s fine.

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and healthy in this unsettling and very strange world we are living in right now.
