CELEBRATING ACCEPTING MY OWN PERSONAL WEAKNESS

MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

I have always been the type of person who rarely accepted my own personal weaknesses.  My favorite Mother’s Day card was a depiction of me as Super Woman.  No matter what challenges have presented themselves to me, I have looked them in the eye and said to myself I will not be defeated.  I have charted my own course toward overcoming troubles and heartaches

brave woman

and with the help and support of my loving and supportive husband and my very loving and patient friends I have usually found land.

This week I found out that in the case of one particular problem that I landed on a phantom island instead of docking on safe and secure land.  I can’t say that I have completely accepted the fact of my humanity that led me to believe in the reality of the phantom but I’m working on it.  And this is where the celebration comes in – because I have accepted the reality of the situation even if it still puzzles me.  And I am working on accepting that I may have to take my cape off once in a while.  But, I’m still not giving up steering my own course.

And here is hoping you will always steer your own course,

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. I don’t know if this particular situation touches people or things, but I do know that sometimes we cannot solve all the situations that come to us. Good for you for realizing that and accepting it. Time to move onto the important stuff, right?

    Celebrating being human and accepting weaknesses together with you. Who wouldn’t want to be a super woman all the time, accepting that we can’t is an important step in growth. I hope that whatever the puzzling situation it will have a positive solution.

    I have trouble with the super woman issue. It’s hard to accept that I can’t always live up to my own ideals for myself. I love that you are able to see your challenge as a learning moment and ultimately as a celebration.

    Oooh…this really hit home Bernadette. I think it’s only since I’ve married my wonderful husband, who is quite humble, that I’ve been able to accept my weaknesses. I had always looked at them as being bad, whereas with Rob’s help, he’s made me see they are just different characteristics!!

    This is your strength, your ‘acceptance power’. Not everyone has that.
