I've always been extremely hard on myself ...throughout my entire life. I'm not sure what inspired this way of being, but it has consistently propelled me to be a high achiever. With the very recent shift in our global paradigm, I've had more time than ever to dissect myself, my actions, my journey and thought patterns. I deduced that there's been an ongoing illusion that I have the complete power to change any situation and mold life into the vision I see as best. This mindset has often plagued me in the past, when an outcome didn't meet my expectations. I would consequentially take myself to court as the judge and the jury, over every life decision that could have yielded a better outcome.
The current circumstances we all find ourselves to be facing is completely out of our control. This leads me to realize that perhaps we can't out run or out shine our destiny. I realize more than ever that the same renewed grace that God gives us daily, we have to give ourselves! I can't beat myself up for yesterday's mindset or shortcomings. At any given moment, we are all doing the best that we can. Even if that includes being in pajamas all day and baking cookies, instead of launching a new webinar. I'm not holding myself accountable for an impossible standard of productivity in this current season.
Life is not easy and this present reality should be managed with care. Positive mental health practices include knowing when to relax, relate & release. There's a meme I've seen circulated that essentially says if you don't come out of this pandemic with more money and success you've wasted a good opportunity. HOW SWAY? We are not on vacation, we are dealing with a Global Pandemic.
It doesn't matter if "Lashanda made $10K on Instagram today"....that will not pressure me into moving beyond my own capacity. I'm committed to God first, myself second and to serve others third. I feel confident that as long as I manage myself and health - that God will provide provision. I urge you the reader, to adapt a similar mentality and not let social media guilt you into neglecting your sanity for the sake of perceived success.
2 Corinthians 9:8 ...And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
