Important Things # 21 ~ Don’t beat yourself up

I am laying on my bed right now – it’s 11:54pm. Why didn’t I fall asleep when I attempted to a bit ago? Well, because I am replaying things in my head that I could have done differently… and things I should have done and didn’t get done… and things I probably shouldn’t have done but did anyways. Lol.

Except; I did whatever I already did just that way and cannot go back…. and didn’t do that thing and do not own a time traveling device…. and yes I did do that other thing. So, what am I going to do about it? NOTHING! haha (Okay, besides write about it here and then fall asleep after.) 🙂

So maybe I spoke too much and should learn how not to all the time. So maybe I got overly excited about something that isn’t even mine yet and went overboard about it. So maybe I spoke too bluntly in order to protect my own heart and may have hurt another’s. So maybe I over-committed and now have to figure out how to get it all done. So maybe I took some selfish time to myself and didn’t do something I intended to. So maybe I completely allowed myself to be vulnerable.

Tomorrow I can practice pausing before I talk – again. Tomorrow I can laugh at myself, and just roll my own eyes at how much like a teenager I still can be. Tomorrow I can make an honest apology for a potential offense I may have made. Tomorrow I can bust my ass to get things done that I promised I would do… and rest later. Tomorrow I can smile and be thankful that I had enough spare time to take a selfish moment, then just get it done. Tomorrow I can take a deep breath and realize that I have come a long way if I have actually allowed myself to be vulnerable again…. and to quote a good friend’s advice, “If you can’t risk it, you can’t win it.”

What is my point to my now 12:10am rambling? (Oh I hope I’m making sense as I type away at the keyboard of my iPhone just trying to not have too many typos or not use text lingo in my blog! Haha) My point is: Do not beat yourself up. What’s done is done… I there’s a fire to fix, damage control to be done, just do it quickly. Bad news only gets worse with time. Like old food in your refrigerator. Lol. You’ll never regret doing the right thing.

Now, I am done thinking about today. And I’m sleepy. 🙂

Until tomorrow,
Sonya… She Idealist

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
Sonya Mae aka SheIdealist
