How do you express your love? Is it the same way you receive love? How do your kids experience your love?

I know sometimes it can feel futile, putting all this work into taking care of and loving our children. It can leave us wondering whether they’ll remember any of it and if it will make a difference. I believe it will make a BIG difference! You’re embedding this into their being. They may not realize it until they’re older, but at some point you’ll see the fruit of your hard work!

GRATITUDE. WHAT FOR? Take a deep breath with me now. Are you able to view this past year through the lens of gratitude?

Yes, there were no doubt highs and lows. No, it wasn’t all unicorns and fairy dust. Still - are there gifts you can experience gratitude for?

Clichéd as it may be, gratitude is a practice, habit and emotion that contributes to our mental wellness. If you summoned the spirit of sadness, complaints, entitlement, depression, worry... you could potentially finish the year with those being your driving feelings.

Equally, you have the power to summon a sense of gratitude into your body, heart and brain - which would leave you feeling much lighter, happier and more positively focused (which, in turn, contributes to your physical and mental health, your immune system, your productivity and so on).

Permission to be grateful. For what? Write that list down in your Finish Strong Guide or in the comments below.

THE UNIVERSE DOESN’T ALWAYS SEEM TO MARCH TO OUR RHYTHM.

Do you sometimes look out at the world and feel helpless, powerless, angry or upset at how things are unfolding? What can you do to allow things to be, imperfect as they might seem?

What perspective would help you to make friends with the universe right now? What type of attitude would you need to adopt to step into a more trusting and surrendered space? Into a more creative and empowered energy? Into the feeling that things are as they are meant to be? What would help with that?

The Universe is as it is. What does that sentence bring up for you right now? Can you forgive and surrender to it? 

Process your thoughts in your Finish Strong Guide or in the comments below.

OTHERS ARE HUMAN AND THEY MESS UP TOO...

Sometimes they mess up big time. That can truly suck.

The problem with holding onto those hurts is that it ends up weighing us down. Forgiveness is for you too, not just for them. Because resentment is like a parasite inside us - it eats us up from the inside out - leaving our relationships hollow. Other people will no doubt have disappointed you in myriad ways... are you ready to let that go?

Are you ready to move on and move past? What would need to happen? What do you need to reframe? What boundary might you need to set or conversation might you need to have?

#FinishStrongWithTPJ and do it for you.

You deserve to move through life resentment free. Therefore... are you ready to forgive? Let us know in the comments below, or grab your Finish Strong Guide (link in bio) and write through your thoughts.

FORGIVENESS IS FOR YOU...

My guess is you have your stories on how you’ve failed this year... failed yourself, failed others. Maybe you’re being a little hard on yourself? Is this how you would speak to a good friend? Is this how you would want your child to talk to themselves?

What would it take for you to look yourself in the mirror and forgive your human flaws? Let go a little bit of any lingering (or crippling) perfectionism? What would it take to see your mistakes as learning opportunities and your failures as just an attempt that didn’t go according to plan? What mantra would help you let go of that right now?

To #FinishStrongWithTPJ we need to be kind to ourselves, believe in ourselves and let go of all our messy middle mess ups...

If you're ready to Finish Strong, grab your guide (link in bio) or answer in the comments below.

Finish this sentence: I need to forgive myself for...
