I will admit I have always been a “beat yourself up” kind of gal. MS and recovery have taught me a lot. I am able to admit my weaknesses, ask for help and then even try some of the suggestions I’m given. Notice I didn’t say DO them but I said try. My goal is to be a better version of myself every day.
Let’s start by writing down what you are strongest at right now. What do you feel you do really really well. That’s the pillar you build upon. Next, write out what you feel you do decent. Not great but you can get by with the skills you have. These are items you’ll build up over time. But lastly, write out what you feel like you just aren’t good at, or not comfortable doing at all!
The last list is the one you have to go and face head on. These are the topics you should be searching for online, and watching videos to help give you the tools to succeed in your business or in life. It can be hard to admit these to ourselves but it can be the most freeing exercises, as it’s you giving yourself the direction you need.
Some of my weaknesses I am thankful for today are being an introvert (shocker, right?), controlling my graze eating, taking everything personally when someone says something, and the dreaded comparison game. The two things I am working on right now is controlling my graze eating and playing the comparison game. Eating on the Wahl’s Diet which is designed for those with MS has helped but I still have the urge to “pick” once in a while. The comparison game or being self-critical is a tough one to overcome. Some days are better than others but I am learning to let go and let God on the days when I want to beat myself up for something I have no control over. I am also learning asking for help allows us to meet some really great people and get to know others better.
What weaknesses are your thankful for? Have a blessed day!
