sometimes it takes work

April 20, 2019

Sometimes it’s easy to live out our values and be the people we want to be.   And sometimes that takes a bit of work.  It takes work in those moments and situations where we know on a logical, rational, and cognitive level what we want our thoughts, feelings and actions to be, but that’s just what they are.

I’m not here to tell you what your values should be, I’m just here to empathize with you and say that I understand that there are times when being the people we want to be doesn’t come easy.  For me it’s can be a challenge to not slip into “someone owe’s me mode of thinking”, to not be jealous of what others have, to not be frustrated or hurt by others unintentional actions.

And this desire to live out my values seems especially hard when it’s not coming naturally and I need to keep doing the hard work over and over again about the same situation.

It’s only been a few weeks since I wrote about “grace” and my desire to show and feel grace.  And once again, at the same moment that I need to be reminded to show grace to others, I also need to be reminded to show grace to myself for not getting it “right” the first time.   Sometimes it all takes some work.
