I meandered through January. Some people bust into the new year with a bang! That person was not me.
I avoided things that needed to be done.
I got overwhelmed when I thought of the things I want to work on.
I wasted time on Pinterest.
Then I decided to tie up some loose ends — the biggest being the Project Life Album I started in January last year.
I kept taking pictures consistently. But eventually I stopped getting them printed and essentially stopped the writing too.
Sometimes I’m so hard on myself. I’m not enough this or that. My house isn’t clean enough. My closets aren’t organized enough. I eat M&M’s as if I will never have another one again. I’m not a very patient middle of the night parent. I see all of these failures.
I want to stop thinking that way. I will never have a perfect closet. Abigail will always have a floof hair or two sticking on her velcro toys. I will be annoyed when Abigail wakes up in the middle of the night. And darn it, I will buy those stupid Valentine’s m&m’s and eat too many.
It’s easy for me to see the good in the people I love. Thinking about them and admiring their strengths.
I’m just about finished now and I’m so proud of it.
