We’ve all got lists. To-do lists. Goal lists. Grocery lists. And the list that may never make it to a sheet of paper, but runs through your head daily. It’s a compilation of all the ways you fall short.
Instead of that self-destructive mash of reasons why you should have called your friend, shouldn’t have picked your kid up late and how you’ll never find the right person, did you ever create a courage list?
Sometimes in your desire to achieve you compare yourself to people’s best days. You forget that you’re juggling parenthood and chronic illness or survived a traumatic childhood. You forget you’ve done some amazing things.
While you’re planning your week spend a few minutes jotting down all the things you’ve done that’s courageous. It might just be the boost you need to tackle that next big thing.
