Himalaya: Listen. Learn. Grow.
Konvos with Kiya
“We are so forgiving of others but do not offer that same grace to ourselves when fall short.”- Zakiya
“It’s not what happens-it is how you choose to react to what happens.” -Zakiya
As we all transition into various stages of life we often face opposition. These trials and tests present us with an option to revert back to unhealthy ways of confronting uncomfortable situations. Let’s face it just because you’re growing doesn’t mean that the old you isn’t lurking within. It is important to be intentional about your growth and the delicate phase of life that you’re in.
Recognizing your triggers and simply saying to yourself, “Let me think of strategies that will help me avoid situations, people, places and things that will offset me and disrupt my path.” However, what do you do when you lose your cool? When you let go of what you’ve been working so hard to grasp a hold of? How do you push forward and encourage yourself through your mistakes? Because WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES!
It’s important that you forgive yourself! The same forgiveness we offer to others so freely we often do not give ourselves. How many times have you spoke negatively to yourself about the things you have done? Or the way you handled a situation. It’s time we turn those negative thought patterns and words to words of encouragement and self-healing.
Here are a few points from tonight’s Konvo with Kiya:
Know that during your growth process you may FALL, STUMBLE, or REVERT to old ways. DON’T GIVE UP!
Grace is simply forgiving yourself and offering yourself another chance to do it right the next time!
Write one positive thing about yourself every morning and every night!
