I’ve been a bad blogger lately. It has been a while since my last post and it’s not like I haven’t sat down and tried…but I couldn’t say what I needed to. My words have been stuck. I’m not even sure what I’ve been feeling lately. The weirdest mix of emotions. There comes those times and days in your life when you realize that you’ve got to just accept that not everyone will care. I’ve had to accept that no matter how nice I can be or how much I give it’ll never be enough for some people. That’s ok. I have to take responsibility for my actions and my feelings. I can’t make people care and my fear of rejection/loss is crippling me.
I truly have so much to be thankful for that I can’t let these little set backs break me. I’ve been through too much to fall now. I know I’ve talked about the author Shauna Niequist before but her books give me a refreshing take so many times. Perfection is not my goal. I’ll never be perfect and I’m thankful for that. She’s taught me that when things are bitter and not going well say thank you and grow because you can always learn. When things are good say thank you and celebrate. So here’s to more celebrations and more growing!
The rest of the year is going to be my time to work on me. To be a better me and a less stressed me. A happy me.
