Human & Brave

Hey!  I don’t even know how to start this post.  I wanted to jump aboard the blogging train.  I wanted to stay consistent and blog well right out of the gate.  Obviously, that hasn’t happened.

I also started running and I stopped.   Well, not completely, but not consistently either.  And, I would mentally beat myself up about those inconsistencies- how I am being a bad example, and if anyone is ever going to read my blog, I have to stay consistent and keep to the course and plan and execute and do.

But, yall.  I’m human.

And I’m learning I can’t do it all.

There are seasons of life and I’ve chosen good things and wonderful things for this season – my family and home school and cooking and saving money and cleaning out all the junk.  And sometimes, at the end of the day (which is the only time I can blog), I just cannot pour out any more.  I just need my bed.

So, that is why it has been very quiet here.  In the past I would want to say, I’m done – just cut the blog off.  But, I’m not doing that this time.  I am going to aim to blog 4 times a month – one time a week.  New goal.  And then, if that is still too much, I will re-visit that goal and revise it down.

I just wanted to let you know that I’m human.  And I’m learning to be brave, not perfect.  How do you want to be brave?


And here is a picture of Maverick – well, just because I wanted you to see part of his daily wardrobe.  :-)

Happy Thursday, Loves!

  1. Life IS busy with all of those things :) And I can totally relate to only wanting my bed at the end of the day!
    We just added our fifth to the mix. But can you believe your boys and my twins are nearly FIVE!!!!
    Children are such a blessing! They are what is important.
    So, don’t be discouraged! Once per week is good! But I totally understand why you might not have it in you at night. There is so much I would like to do but never get to it :(
    I just keep checking back every so often. You are an encouragement to me. I even cleaned out my closet! And I finally put the coconut oil in my shower (for a moisturizer) that I’ve been meaning to do for months! So, see? You are helping others! You are helping me and I love reading your blog!

    • AWww!! You are too sweet! I cannot believe our kids are almost 5!!! I’m so glad to ‘re-connect’ with you! Thank you so much for the encouragement!!!

  2. I love this and I love you. Keep being brave! Posting once a week is better than not at all! “Progress not perfection” and “Done is better than perfect” are my favorite Lara mantras. :) You are doing beautifully.
