You know how I often talk about an issue and then admit I am dealing with the same thing but do my best? YEs…well here’s the perfect example.
Most of my regular readers know that I do my best to post twice a week, Tuesday and Friday. This week however I blew it, totally didn’t happen for Friday.
Why? Well I could give you a ton of ‘reasons’ (last day with my Korean kids and it was crazy busy, I haven’t been feeling great due to a summer cold, and so on) but in fact these are just excuses. There was nothing holding me back from sitting down earlier and getting my post ready in advance as I’ve done before when I KNOW my life is getting a bit crazy. I could have switched on my computer instead of plunking my butt down in front of the tv to watch something I can’t even remember right now! I was just a tired and distracted and allowed that to be what I chose to be important.
Could-a, would-a, should-a.
Fact is these are all just excuses for me procrastinating because I was a bit tired and the thought of typing was not attractive at all. I slid back into my old habit of I’ll do it tomorrow…bright and early! I know better than that. I NEVER get to it bright and early because I am just not a bright and early kinda girl lol.
So, my post today is not to berate myself but to share that even the coach has days like that. We all slip up, goof up and mess up. So, back to it today. I’m going to try hard to get a few post in the que to save this from happening again. I am going to shake off the inclination to berate myself and just push forward. I am going to say oops. Then carry on with some compassion for myself and learn something from the goof up.
After all, falling down does not a failure make…staying down does.
