Extending Grace To Ourselves 1



Kin Women AUG 2018 Blog Images (1)

I choose to rise out of that storm and see that in moments of desperation, fear, and helplessness, each of us can be a rainbow of hope, doing what we can to extend ourselves in kindness and grace to one another.

Oprah Winfrey

If there was a tape recording right now internally as you drive in the car or are standing by the sink listening to the radio, what would it be?

How are you speaking to yourself?

It is easy to be our own worst critic.

I heard someone once say,

“If we spoke to our friends, the way we speak to ourselves, we would have no friends left.”

Making mistakes and failing is a very normal part of being human. However, we get stuck often not in the failure but how we rise from the storm.

I love this quote from Oprah;

I choose to rise out of that storm and see that in moments of desperation, fear, and helplessness, each of us can be a rainbow of hope, doing what we can to extend ourselves in kindness and grace to one another.

Oprah Winfrey

The way we extend grace to ourselves in the midst of challenging seasons can be the greatest gift we give to every person in our community.

Grace begins in the way we speak to ourselves.

Grace is found in the sheer tenacity of forgiving ourselves and beginning again.

Grace is found when we say sorry and see the possibility to be fallible every day.
