It's one of those words that gets tossed around a lot. People use it to describe everything from politics to their pant size, thinking about things that should change. You know what I've realized? Change takes motivation, change takes willpower, long story short, change is ridiculously hard sometimes.
If you read my post on Thursday, you probably know that I don't like the word "resolutions". That word screams commitment, which is great! If you're really committed to doing the things you set. However, for me, that word holds a lot more responsibility than I'm willing to take. See if I don't complete a resolution, a commitment, I feel bad about it. If I set goals and I map out how I'm going to accomplish them, even if I only make it half way to my goal I still feel really good about how much I have accomplished. That's just the inner Jessica talking, but it's truly how I feel.
This is just me rambling at you, but I feel like it needs to be said. Once again I found myself feeling bad about not knowing what to post today. Never mind the fact that I didn't sleep well, and feel horribly unmotivated, something had to go up! But you know what is great about goals? They are progressive. Maybe I felt bad this morning, but it is teaching me that next time that happens I can address it. Maybe I'll start up a list of back up post topics. Maybe when inspiration hits I'll go and write out some posts to have on hand for days like this. The possibilities are endless, and I feel confident about the goals that I've set.
I guess what I'm saying is that we LOVE our blogs. I know we do. We just can't be afraid sometimes to take a step back and reweigh our priorities. It's only human, we are only human, I'm okay with this.
Big hugs ya'll!
