An unfinished grocery list was the material item that broke my heart to pieces in the final days of my Papas life. Sounds silly right? It was that moment that reality struck, those groceries weren’t getting bought. They wouldn’t be tucked in the fridge to make a sandwich for lunch later that week. My Papa was going to die and there was nothing I could do to stop it. I still want to feel angry that he didn’t let us know he was sick, he kept it a secret from us until his final days and there was so much I wanted to say. But that’s selfish of me, he did things the way he wanted them to be done and that was that. That was him. He didn’t want us to change our lives or treat him any differently, he loved us, unconditionally, and watching life play out exactly how it had been before he was sick was enough for him. He never held back, always said what needed to be said, you never had to question how he felt about a damn thing because trust me he’d let you know. Today is his birthday and I just miss him so much. I needed this memory today.. I feel like he is reminding me that with everything being all over the place with my health, work, life.. these are the mundane moments in life I will want to soak up when there’s nothing left. Need to focus on the love and support surrounding me and having more than I need to get by. I love you Papa you will always be a motivator in my life and I can still hear your voice in my head clear as day saying, “I’m so proud of you.” He never left without saying that. ❤️ #life#sappy#real
oh girl, we're going straight to it today! 👉🏼 TIP #10 : FUCK UP, FORGIVE YOURSELF, MOVE FORWARD ASAP
Yes, this is a business tip.
It’s going to happen. You’re going to mess up. Expect that.
But there’s nothing to gain - nothing - in stewing over your misses, beating your self up, and going into paralysis.
I missed publishing these tips yesterday. I haven’t pre-written them. As part of practicing consistency and showing up every day for the month of December (rather than relying on automation), I have been writing these out daily.
So I just want to remind you, you brilliant human, doing your best, and then fucking up - and you will - move on with the learning taken as soon as humanly possible.
And if you're struggling with that, JOURNAL YOUR REGRETS AND SELF BEAT UP so you can process it asap and get back on the path (as it happens I have created a free journal mini course which you can sign up to in the link in my BIO!) Annie x
