After I wrote Monday's post about choosing a word for the last 3 months of 2018 I chose the word GRACE.
To me, this means that I will be present with people, forgiving and most of all - kind.
I chose GRACE because I was treated with dis-grace a few weeks ago and it was so hurtful!
We were out with friends and I started to tell a story that was very emotional to me. I started to set the stage, reliving the emotions of the experience when my girlfriend cut me off and said "are you really going to tell that story again? We've all heard it you know."
I was c-r-u-s-h-e-d.
I was so caught up in reliving the traumatic experience that I did not realize that the people around the table had already heard my story. That was weeks ago and I still feel sad, embarrassed and betrayed when I think about it.
Since I believe in 'being the change you want to see in the world' I will do my very best to never treat anyone like I was treated. I will be kind and full of grace.
Please be nice today to everyone. We are all just doing the best we can.
xoxo Lady Katherine
