Did you know that season 15 will be the final season for "Criminal Minds?" I'm not exactly happy about it. I'm not ready to see them go. There are a few memorable episodes throughout the show's run that were very well written and creepy. The list below just names a few.

1. Season 1, Episode 7 "The Fox"

3. Season 2, Episode 12 "Profiler, Profiled"

When Morgan travels to Chicago to celebrate his mother's birthday, he quickly becomes the main suspect in a series of murders. The rest of the BAU are determined to clear his name, all the while digging very deep into Morgan's unshared past.

Reid is held hostage by an extremely religious man with multiple personality disorder. The BAU walk on eggshells trying to rescue their friend alive. However, they have no idea where Reid is being held captive.

5. Season 3, Episode 3 "Scared To Death"

A delusional spree killer, nicknamed "The Road Warrior," targets blonde women and shoots them while they drive on the freeway. The culprit becomes hard to capture, as his victims are at random and he is described as looking "normal."

9. Season 4, Episode 21 "A Shade of Gray"

While the BAU investigates a series of child abductions and murders in New Jersey, they notice that the latest case doesn't match the pattern of the previous abductions. This causes the crew to suspect the victim's family of being involved with the crime.

10. Season 5, Episode 13 "Risky Business"

Several teenagers commit suicide within a two-week period, which raises suspicion with the BAU. After some searching, they come across an online "choking game," which is treated as a contest amongst surrounding schools. Another teenager is thought to be responsible for the game's creation, but is he really the culprit?

11. Season 6, Episode 5 "Safe Haven"

A thirteen-year-old spree killer is on the loose, targeting families in Nebraska and Iowa. While he's on the hunt for his next family, the BAU must stop him before he kills again.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
