You never know (and I haven’t figured out how to change it) how a group of pictures is going to arrange itself. Then I noticed that one of the pictures I was using (scrounged from Facebook) had a name on it. I replaced it.1
It is Wednesday of Spring break. I have been to the dentist, added another layer to my debt snowball, and bought a new pair of hiking shoes. I have hung up a load of laundry, done my workout and enjoyed my breakfast.
So where does grace come into all of this? It comes in the form of the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It comes in my workout from Pahla B Fitness, which is designed to help with moodiness. It had a lot to do with grace.
I have not done some things that I had planned to do. I have done other things, but not those things. I am not thrilled with my scale numbers and I had anticipated being somewhere else. I have not been consistent with the tasks that will help me reach my goal. I give myself grace.
Grace looks at that and moves on, recognizing that today is a different day and different things can happen. Grace says, “You can have various outcomes that do not mirror the past. You can make changes to your future.”
So today, I embrace grace and go forward.
If you are struggling with anything, if life feels a tad funky, GRACE has something to offer.
We live in challenging times.
