Do you ever wonder why we, as women, have a hard time taking a compliment? For most of us, it’s hard to take credit for a job well done. We feel the need to recognize everyone else that helped. We deflect or just flat out reject the praise or compliment. 🤷♀️
What have you done this week that was hard? Maybe in the last month? Did you allow yourself a pat on the back? For pushing through? For having the boundaries you needed? For doing what felt impossible?
Rest in that for a moment, Sister. 💪
Yes, thank God for the strength and ability. Absolutely thank anyone that helped you. But, take a minute and recognize the hard things you’ve done.
In fact, today’s challenge is to write down three things that have been hard for you to do recently, but you did them. 🗒🖊 (Yes, write it down. There's a connection that happens in our brain when we write things down.)
I have the words “You Can” as my phone screen saver. Most of the time I don’t pay any attention to it, but there are days when it draws my attention. I take a moment to reflect and remember I’ve done hard things. I exhale thinking, “Yes, Lord. I can.”
Just saying that to myself internally musters up strength. Try it.
Go ahead. Sit for a few minutes and write down three hard things you’ve accomplished recently and remind yourself that you can. You can. 🎉
P.S. Have you messaged us about your need for Beautiful Blessings? Have you nominated someone you love? 🎁 Can you help provide a blessing? If so, please let us know.
P.S.S. We'll be posting daily over in our BBx3 Facebook Community If you're not already part of this amazing group of women, come join us!🌻
