Welp, I’ve already screwed up my “write everyday till my birthday” goal. I am pretty sure I knew that wasn’t going to work out, but I had the best intentions.
Part of the journey this year is allowing myself grace and forgiveness. I am VERY much an all-or-nothing person, and in the past, if I could not complete something successfully (in the way I had planned), I would drop it immediately.
…then I would stew about it for a while.
…then I would claim myself as a loser that can’t ever finish anything.
…then, maybe, possibly, I would eat a bag of Cheetos while perusing the internet for inspiration for my next big achievement.
…maybe. Don’t judge.
But today is a new day! I can choose to behave differently! Free will and all that jazz! So I’m just going to keep writing after missing some days. And I’m going to allow myself an extra rest day today, because, darnit, yesterday was stressful and it’s okay to rest.
I’m not going to feel guilty about anything today. I’m just going to keep going.
