I find myself not motivated today….I dropped my kids off at school in my pj’s pretty funny considering I walk them to school (well they ARE really cute sweats if I do say so myself) in fact I’m still in them. I’m doing that thing I coach everyone not to do….talking down to myself for not being motivated!
It’s the beginning of the week and I prefer to just prop my feet on the fisher price table in the middle of my cluttered living room and eat ice cream out of the carton; no work, no returning emails, no writing, no phone calls, no cleaning, no laundry etc. Yep, it’s that kind of day. I can’t really pinpoint why I got up on the wrong side of the bed, I just know I did and though I’ve said my prayers about it, I’ve got a feeling it’s not going to change, not today anyway and here is why because some days we all need a day…. A day to just be blah no matter what is going right or wrong for you it’s ok to just have one of those days.
Why am I writing this and putting it right out there for all to read because it’s ok to admit I don’t have it all together ALL the time even though I brand myself as the speaker and coach who helps you reach your life balance…. because it’s authentic to admit I’m having a blah day and it’s ok for you to admit it too when you are having a bad one! We don’t always have to be “on”. It’s ok to give yourself grace to have a blah day even when you have so many blessings! Just be real and be you that’s why I’m writing these words. Find a friend or someone who cares about you and vent away (even if you don’t really know what you are venting about) and have a better day tomorrow!
Because in the words of Scarlett O’Hara “Tomorrow is another day”
So here’s to all your possibilities (sometimes for another day!)
