Hello friends! I wasn’t planning on posting this today, but I feel like I need to do this for my own peace of mind. When it comes to people besides myself I have learned to have low expectations. I have perfected the art of using what’s handed me and making the most of it. When it comes to myself I have the highest expectations. It’s truly outrageous!! I will be the first to admit that I am not the most consistent person. I think we have all seen this first-hand. I often set myself up for failure without even realizing it! Let’s take Blogmas for example. I knew that doing this challenge during December was going to be difficult. December is one of my busiest months. This December I had my first college finals week, a huge Christmas concert that had three days worth of rehearsals, and I am going out of the country in a couple of weeks.
Given the circumstances, I decided to pre-plan some blog posts. Those helped a lot, but I didn’t do enough of them. I have to remind myself that I’m doing the best I can, but my mind like’s to turn on me. It’s pretty great (not really). I knew that I had finals this month and that I was leaving the country BUT I CONVINCED MYSELF THAT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA! I still don’t know if this was a good idea, but I’m still gonna try to finish this out strong!
Another thing that I wanted to do is be more consistent. That was a big goal for me to try to accomplish at the being of 2019. I think I have done fairly well this year. I posted more this year than last, and that’s a feat in and of itself. I feel like learning how to be consistent is a life long goal of mine. I just have to remind myself that I should give myself grace when I fail and that I don’t have to have such high expectations for myself.
That’s pretty much all for today! I hope you guys enjoyed my mini therapy session. I will, hopefully, see you guys tomorrow. BYE!!!!
