What Does Grace Mean to You?
Before you can give yourself grace, you first must have grace. On Saturday we talked with Amanda from Mandibelle16, Bikurgurl and Dajena, about grace from without. On Sunday, Carol from WritersDream9 showed you how to harness that external grace and turn it inwards. Rosema from A Reading Writer showed us how to strip away the layers to find our vulnerable core–the seat of our grace. Yesterday, Kewan and Bikurgurl illustrated the dangers of labels and how we need to choose the ones we accept. Annie from What the Woman Wrote, Carol and Rosema also dropped in with their view of labels.
Now it’s time to hear from some new voices who see grace in a whole new light. Welcome Lucile de Godoy and The Lonely Author to our on going conversation and series. They’ve dropped by to talk about peace which is one of the fruits of grace.
For Lucile, the question of what grace meant to her took her to place we haven’t yet visited. I’ll let her explain.
“The question brought me to last Hatha yoga class when the instructor talked about feeling light, in peace, having patience with ourselves throughout our daily journeys. My conclusion was that in order to do that we need to leave the ego and speak from the heart, relieving ourselves from fulfilling external expectations.”
Lucile’s take on grace resonates with The Lonely Author who commented on grace saying:
“My thoughts are along the lines of finding peace and beauty within oneself. Accepting our imperfections. Loving who we are and accepting others for who they are.
Talk of grace has been buzzing around not only the blogosphere but on Twitter as well where @anniescribes a poetic definition for grace, which dovetails with Lucile and The Lonely Author’s views. Annie takes it one step further and explains how grace through peace leads to giving oneself space to be and room for growth.
