Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning πŸ“Έ by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I thinkπŸ‘½) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
