I don’t have anything groundbreaking to share today other than that it shaped up to be a very good day. There was nothing special about it. I didn’t get quite enough sleep last night, something which has become an increasingly frequent predicament. I didn’t knock it out of the park at work and I didn’t force myself to exercise when I got home. My dirty dishes are still in the sink and my To Do list looks about the same as it did yesterday.
I failed today, not in the epic rock bottom, nothing left to lose, start from scratch, rebuild from the ground up kind of way. Today was as average as it gets. It could easily be deemed a grand disappointment or a passable effort depending on who you ask. I accomplished a few things and procrastinated some others. On a scale from one to ten, today would have landed on the grey tick mark between five and six.
Yet, despite all of this bland averageness, I’m happy. Things are far from perfect but, at this moment, I feel like I’m exactly who I’m supposed to be, flaws and all. I know it’s common to look in the mirror and not like the person looking back. You are your own worst critic after all. But does it ever go the other direction? Do you ever look at your reflection and catch a glimpse of the person you’ve always wanted to be?
We are constantly imagining ways that life could be better or that we could be better. It’s dangerously easy to daydream of successful, well-adjusted, perfect versions of our future selves and become discouraged. However, if you take a moment to really look, you might find that lovely daydream is neither as idyllic nor as fanciful as it seems.

I love this post! I am so happy you’re happy. I love how you are such a young age and so good in your own skin. There are so many women, much older than you, who are striving to reach this place in their own lives! Keep doing what you are doing and inspiring all of us in the wonderful way you are.

Thanks Ingie! I’m glad you liked it. I still have my fair share of bad days but it helps to take a step back sometimes and put things in perspective. Love you too!
This is such a wonderful post. It was such a refreshing need. I love how you know that things aren’t perfect yet they are going as they are supposed to. Some days, I feel like this and I can relate and on others not so much. This post just has good vibes to it. Thank you for sharing. Much love.
