I knew the day would probably come, and it did. I was unable to get a post up yesterday. Instead of beating myself up about it, I decided to give myself grace. Living the Full Life doesn’t mean that you are living perfectly, you need to be able to give yourself grace when needed.
What I have learned through these 21 days so far is that there are nuggets of time that I have not previously used wisely, that I now know I can use to write. Albeit I might not be able to get a full post up, but I can use those nuggets to get some writing done. I don’t need to have a full two hours to be able to do something in my writing. I have also learned that for me, a homeschooling mom of 4, it is not really realistic for me to have time every single day to write, and that is OK. Going forward, I will continue to do my best, and I hope I can finish this month strong, but I also know, writing every day is not a realistic expectation.
