It’s always my goal to write a blog post a day.
This is how I started out writing the blog.
But as the blog grew into more than just the blog — the Facebook group, The Empowerment Experience, E-School — I’ve struggled to be consistent.
Throw in a pandemic, homeschooling two of the kids, getting divorced, and moving, all in the last fourteen months, and, well, you get what you’ve been getting.
Random, sporadic blog posts.
And that’s not what I want.
This isn’t the first time this has happened.
I’ve fallen off course several times over the past couple years.
We’ve all been in this situation.
And this is the point where many of us start beating ourselves up.
I’m a failure.
I’m such a loser.
I’m such an asshole.
I’m never going to figure this out.
I’m always going to fuck things up.
Why even bother?
Here’s the thing.
I might have failed to string a nice, long chain of consecutive blog posts together, but that doesn’t make me a failure.
I just didn’t figure out the right system yet.
I still have kinks to work out.
I have lots of room for improvement for how I manage not my time, but myself.
So I’m back at it!
It’s Day 1.
And all it means is that I know another way that doesn’t work, and I’m one day closer to finding the way that does.
If you are struggling with something, if you have taken a detour (either intentionally or unintentionally) it’s not a measure of you.
You aren’t a failure.
You just failed to find a way to do whatever it is you want to do.
It’s the failures that help you find a way to be successful.
You just gotta keep showing up.
I showed up today.
And I’m committing to showing up tomorrow.
How about you?
