The Beautiful Ugly Truth
Happy New Year. It's a great time of year to say your personal truths out loud. Both the beautiful and the ugly ones. Own it, accept it, and grow from it.
My truth is that I am a brand new person. I was reborn after my divorce. I'm deeply flawed and motherhood still scares the hell outta me. I fear no matter how much in a day I accomplish that I haven't done enough, I fear I have not made enough progress in my journey. I always wonder if I have spent enough time with my children, really connecting with them and understanding the deepest part of their hearts. Give yourself more mom credit this year.
My truth is that I have to complete projects more than I start new ones. The old saying goes- those who are faithful in least are faithful in most. Even the smallest projects are a representation of the huge life projects. Did you finish cleaning out the closet like you said you would? If you can't seem to complete organizing one walk-in closet, how are you going to stay focused enough to launch your small business, or that podcast, and stay on a financial plan without fail for a year to get on track to buy your first home? Finish this year.
My truth is that I'm so optimistic about my entire life, but that doesn't mean I'm not scared about the process. Trust the process.
My ugly truth is that at 34, I have way less figured out than I hoped for when I was 20 looking ahead with optimism. I count every penny and worry about money, but I also worry about not being thankful enough for the life I'm blessed to have. I'm thankful to be where I am.
My beautiful truth is that I have never felt more beautiful and powerful in my life. I'm embracing failures and my fears and using them to push me to the life I know is waiting for me. May you do the same this new year.
Happy New Year bishhhhhh, make it count because you're amazing!
