Whether you look at the stats, or sit at home wondering where your prince charming is, or continuously hear your teenager’s door slam. Sometimes you just can’t get it right.
Sometimes the key to not sucking is to admit defeat.
Do not admit defeat and then drown yourself in Kit-Kat bars, Fruli Strawberry Beer and fashion magazines. You know, if that’s your sort of thing.
Admit almost defeat. And by almost, I mean hang on and be tenacious with one hand, and ask for help with the other.
Yes, it’s a fine balance my dear ones.
Admit you’ve reached your limit, and then let someone else’s experience, imagination and fresh perspective inspire you.
It’s very difficult to do. I know that, because I’ve recently just had to do that. And it sucked. Hard.
I am very much a type ‘A’ person, a get out and get it done kinda gal. I have a quiet competitive nature, and when I don’t excel at something, it eats me up inside.
Recently I had to make a very difficult decision. Part of making the decision that I did, involved knowing that I needed help to achieve what I wanted, and what I know that I can.
So, I shall enjoy my white wine spritzers when I come home and close the door on my work day. I will meditate, nurture my body with healthy food, and my mind with positive affirmations.
Hopefully a month from now, having eaten my pride, I will not suck….as much, and I’ll be closer to accepting that I’m far from perfect.
Pour a glass of your best therapist, and listen to a little Frankie Miller…you’re not alone in your ‘sucking at some things’…we all suck sometimes. But you’re going to be ok kid…
