Somewhere within the gray

We are all constantly in a state of tug of war, pulling and pushing at life, a constant contradiction, never simply black and white instead somewhere in the gray.

You want to lose weight but dang that cake was good, you want to fulfill your vows til death do you part but yet you want to feel like you’re a team and be loved, you want to save money but really need new jeans, you want to have a bunch of friends but need your alone time, you want to go on hikes but would love nothing more than to just lay in the bed all day, you want to own your own business but find stability in beings told what to do.

The secret to being content in the contradiction of life is GRACE. Knowing you are only human and although you have goals you want to reach it’s ok to be somewhere in the gray. It’s ok to not give it all you’ve got all the time, it’s ok to have bad days or relapse on your fasting, it’s ok to overspend every once in a while, it’s ok to question relationships or draw boundaries. It’s ok to not be ok sometimes. Simply acknowledging flaws and wanting to change is still a step and a step is progress. Don’t beat yourself up the moment you fall short of your own expectations, give yourself a little leeway, a little slack on the line. Get rid of the all or nothing mindset. You can in fact have your cake and eat it too.
