Well that didn't go as planned. But what can you learn from the situation? How can you make the most of it? How can you even use it to your advantage? There is probably a way if you look for it - and open yourself up to the possibilities.
I am practicing self compassion when I make mistakes. But I find it to be an interesting push and pull. I want to get continually better at things and push myself, and yet to also be okay with mistakes. It feels somewhat contradictory. However, no matter who we are and what we are doing, if [...]
I used to get paralyzed in the most basic of decisions. Like what to eat at a restaurant. I might decide and then second guess myself, and potentially not enjoy the meal as much because of it. But I am playing with getting more in touch with what I really want, and then trusting the [...]
Are you taking responsibility for your role in all of life? Not more, but certainly not less. It will probably feel amazingly empowering if this is new to you.

How comfortable are you writing out what you appreciate about yourself? What about trying and seeing what [...]
The airline offered $250 in travel credit to take a later flight. Then $500. Then $750. Then $1500. Things change when you need or want something. Alternatives matter. Are you ready to up the ante for something important in your own life?
