I’m going to be completely upfront with every single person, spirit, soul, demon, alien, entity, whatever that is reading this. I challenged myself to write for thirty days. Is that excessive? No. Have I completed it? No. Am I going to continue? Yes!!! Do I feel like it today? …no.
Even though I have a million ideas, thousands of experiences, and dozens of blog ideas… there are days that the words just don’ t flow like they should. I am still thinking about writing more about my babies and jobs in banking, tutoring, retail, and food and wine and travel and… At this moment, when I am writing less than two hours from my daily deadline—none of these things want to create a complete thought in my mind.
Do you ever wake in the night? Are you filled with incomplete thoughts? They could be images that just meld from one to another. Sometimes they are unstated or incomplete conversations. Mine are even songs that play on repeat(and “I Wanna Be Like You” was not on my recent playlist…where do these come from???).
The more important question: when you make a promise to yourself: what makes you follow through? Do you rely on not letting yourself down? Do you bribe yourself? Are you one of those that just follows through and never thinks about it? (Bless you because most of us can’t!)
Somedays, I am simply tired and have no answers. I want so desperately to be a great example of a “have it all”mom, but every once in a while luxuries like sleep are distracting. There are examples of moguls that have done whatever it takes to create empires, but how can we (have it all moms) to do that?
You are allowed to take time to think.
You are allowed to take time to regroup.
You are allowed to take time to plan.
You are allowed to take time to progress.
You are allowed to take time for yourself.
This life is not easy. There are no perfect directions to follow. You have one absolute. You must keep going. There are people that depend on you.
Keep going, dears! We are here for you. You are making a difference. It is worth it!!
