Like many of you who subscribe to this blog, I too juggle a lot. These past two months I have not posted on this site . . . not because of lack of desire, but more so because of poor planning. There I said it! Perfectly Imperfect Inc. is very near and dear to my heart! So much so, that I am back in school full time to get a dual Masters both in Divinity and Marriage & Family Therapy, so that I can continue (with God’s help) building this organization. I sell Premier Designs jewelry, in which I earn 50% commission on all that I sell, to help support efforts for Perfectly Imperfect Inc. and overhead for working out of the home. Yep . . . two businesses! Perfectly Imperfect Inc. also has a wonderful women’s group called VIRTUE that meets monthly. Then of course there is this blog . . . the blog that birthed out this organization and the vision to see a world where women exude gentleness, grace, and confidence from a place of wholeness and love impacting generations to come.
This is my baby, my dream, the very essence of why I stepped out on faith to pursue this full time . . . and yet there are times where poor planning happens. The thing that gets missed the most is this blog. So, here we are 2 months later with a new post. I could totally beat myself up, but instead I’m giving myself grace. Yes, I need to plan better. Yes, I need to write posts as they come to me, and lock myself down to do so. Yes, I need to plan in my schedule days to write, and pre-schedule posts. Today . . . I choose grace for me instead of allowing myself to be a punching bag with blows of “could’ves, should’ves, and would’ves”.
What is something that you too have put off? Is there something that you have neglected due to poor planning? Maybe you too have been working hard, but things have kept you from doing tending to whatever it is you neglected. You keep thinking about it, and it hurts you because you just can’t seem to get to it. Now that you realize what that “thing” is that you have been neglecting, it’s time to get back to it. Don’t waste the time beating yourself up over the fact that you haven’t given it the amount of attention you used to give it (whatever your “it” is). Give yourself grace and get to work. Intentionally do whatever it takes to get back to where you were. If what you neglected is something that is very important to you, then be persistent. Life has a way of presenting many challenges and obstacles that can throw us off, but get back up. Even if 2 months go by . . . get back to it. Remember, your work, your efforts, your dedication is not in vain . . . keep moving forward. Be gracious to you!
