Today it’s crazy windy but stunning. I want to offer you a moment of encouragment as you go about this weekend. As I walked along this morning, the waves crashing as a storm was brewing, Mother Nature having her way and the craziness that can mean. I want to draw your attention to the beauty and power that it can produce. More the beauty, the real beauty of it. And respecting the power of the waves and how they can seem like they just roll in and out. The waves can catch you off guard and pull you in, often like emotions, often like hurt feelings and unkind words. The point is you can step back, you can look at things from a distance, not step into it or put yourself in its path, on purpose anyway. Storms, crashing waves, high winds, water spray, and the rocks are all beautiful….. at a distance. Finding the calm, knowing when to move out of the way, seeing the beauty, now that is the real power.

I’m new at this setting up a blog thing, well sort of. I understand the writing part, and I’m slowly getting the technical part (slowly, very slowly). And I’m honest about this, the tech side is not my strong side. I love to write, that’s my favorite part.
So small confession, I get frustrated easily with tech things that I can’t figure out. Does anyone else out there understand that feeling??? Anyone at all?
I posted this picture on Instagram earlier today, and my daughter brought up a good point, it looks like I broke my tablet, I assure you I did not, it is simply face down while I have a time out. After reading her comment, I burst out laughing because it really did appear like I broke it.
Now in the past I would have fussed and huffed and puffed and lost my mind.. (shhhhh I didn’t say how long in the past)……. hmmmm ok carrying on..
I can be real, and honestly I can still loose my mind and put myself in a time out. But here’s the encouragment part (ready??) We are human! We get frustrated and how we deal with it, we can grow and change and mature. We don’t have to do what we have always done. And you don’t have to feel guilt and hold it against yourself. Pick yourself up! Forgive yourself and take a deep breathe, take a walk and if need be try again later. If you lost your mind around other people, own it. Say you blew it, Say you’re sorry and do better next time, don’t hide it, don’t shrug it off. Own it, but don’t let it hold you down. We get so wrapped up in not making mistakes, or trying to bluff our way to those around us into hoping theythink we don’t make mistakes, that it makes it harder to say “I messed up”.
Is it easy to admit you messed up? Do you say your sorry or do you hope you can drop it and it never be talked about again? Leave me comment below and tell me your story.
