Little ones, big ones…in between ones…
Why did Dr. Seuss write a book on doubts…and all the places they hide in our lives?
I have not written a blog in awhile…I had this full intention to do 2 per week. A week passed, then two, and now it is October and I am finally just going to embrace my inner Nike Swoosh…and “just do it”.
Life gets busy, but the busier my life gets, the more thoughts I actually have to share. So lets peel away a layer and see what the root cause of this procrastination is…
Doubts that what I have to share matters. Doubts that I am relatable. Doubts that it will be good enough. Doubts because September was hard and I wanted some awesome miracle to write about, and all I could come up with were mediocre ones.
Wait…did I just say mediocre miracle?
So I am “checking myself, before I wreck myself” and Calling myself out. What is the root of doubt?
The “P” word. PERFECTIONISM…
Wait..I already dealt with that before…really…AGAIN?
Yes…Perfectionism is like that ugly sequel to that stupid horror film you watched as a kid that recreates itself with the same silly plot, and the same predictable outcome, and in the middle a lot of pain, death, and fear…
Ok…maybe that was too intense.
Seriously though. Perfectionism is rooted in that lie that we can not be enough.
And that Sister Friend is a LIE from the PIT of you know where…so today I am calling it out…stepping back into the arena and “Daring Greatly” (fabulous book by the way…highly recommend it!)
I am a “blessed mess” and I am here to tell you that when you are a “blessed mess”…your mess is daily transformed into a “message” for others. We have to change the way we think…about ourselves!!! This is where Coffee and Grace come it BIG time. To spend time connecting to the Life source, the TRUTH source!!
Your light is NOT to be kept under a bushel basket!
Your are the Salt of the earth…or for my NOLA peeps…You offer a little Tony’s to spice up life.
So todays post is to tell you…
I am back to share with your my perfectly imperfect messy but blessed and beautiful life and all the lessons in the midst of all I do..
In hope to offer you hope, share a little truth, and lead you to embrace the beautiful life you have been given.
