Every Monday in March I'm going to try something new and I'd love your opinion in the comments below. If you like the idea I might continue them on a regular (although not every Monday) schedule. I'm devoting Monday's to meditation, reflection and devotion to submission. I hope to select topics that will get you thinking differently about some part of your life or submission and then just maybe grow a little bit further. Today's topic is about struggling.

It can come upon us suddenly. That realization that you've backslid in your journey.

Or maybe it has happened bit by bit for days, weeks or months. You feel less in touch with your submission than you want to be.

This isn't the time to beat yourself up over where you are now. This isn't the time to try to figure out when you slipped. Take a deep breath and accept that you are here now and can get back on track.

The first step to getting back on track is accepting that you stumbled. You can not be perfect 100% of the time. You probably can't even be perfect 5% of the time. The goal is to be your best as much as possible and to continue growing and learning the rest of the time. This includes times you are backpedaling.

You can learn from those moments you've lost your submission more than the times you are in focus. Take 10 minutes today to think about the last time you made a mistake or that you lost your submissive focus. What did you learn about that moment? Did you learn that you are not your failures? Because you aren't. You are not  a sum of all the mistakes and loss in concentration or focus. You are more. You are a being full of potential that ebbs and flows through submission.

Your submission is dynamic. It moves like the waves. Let your mental focus flow through you and start rebuilding your positive energy.

You've slipped but now you are ready to climb back up. You can do this!
