Good Morning Troops! I hope you had a fantastic 3-day weekend! I personally went camping which ended up being a whole lot of fun sprinkled with a dash of weird.
I had so much fun connecting with new & old friends, enjoying the perfect weather, cooking on the fire, relaxing and exploring new areas. We giggled, laughed, ate and played games. It honestly was a perfect weekend, except for the dash of weird.
Now I am sure many of you can relate to the difficulty that blending personalities can be. You never know who is going to get along with who, what special corks people might have and so on. Well, this creates the perfect storm of awkwardness and thus the weird was born into my weekend. 😬😬
So how do you handle this? How do you handle a weekend where you still don’t know anyone’s honest opinions, whether or not anyone was offended or upset, or if you need to deploy damage control or not.
Honestly I wish I had some magic words of my own for you this morning but instead I will borrow from someone’s genius; “You can’t make people be or do what you want. All you can do is be unapologetic about what you want and let others show up however they can.” 🤔
It was Gabrielle Bernstein who famously said these words and they have been echoing in my head all morning.
No matter how much I desire for people to like me, or get along with me or each other, I cannot control an ounce of this. All I can do is be unapologetic about me and let them show up the best they can.
I often say, we are all doing our best and sometimes our best stucks but it’s our best. I choose to love myself and others through where they are (doesn’t mean I have to be around them) but I can LOVE them nevertheless. 💖 And if they choose to show up differently then we can meet on a different playing ground and start again.
There is so much truth in this quote. This is why I decided to dedicate this week’s video to honor her wisdom and sharing my top 3 Gabby quotes with you today. 💖💖💖💖
I hope you find relief within one of these quotes as I did this morning and be sure to share with a friend who can use some love today!
I wish you all the best in all that you do today and this week,
XOXO – Bonnie Kelly
