When you slip

2015-04-12 13.42.57I set a goal a few week ago to write a blog post every day for 30 days straight. It quickly turned into every week-day for 30 days. And I was plugging along until yesterday, when I missed a post.

How do you handle slip ups?

At first I was disappointed with myself and started to get upset that I ruined everything, but then before the voices in my head got a strong foothold, I took a deep breath.

Isn’t it amazing how healing breathing can be?.

And in that breath what I realized was that slip ups and misses and stumbles are all part of the process. We can’t win every single moment of every single day. We can’t be perfect. Believe me, I’ve tried.

Some days I’m going to eat cookies instead of dinner.
Some day I might drink more wine than I should’ve.
Some days I am going to skip my workout… or work… or writing a blog post.

And that’s okay.

It’s not how you handle success so much as how you handle failure.

And missing one day out of all-the-days is not the end of the world.
