A chance to start again.
I'm back! Did you miss me?
Yesterday, I took a "me-day" as I needed to deal with some surprise twists that life threw at me.
Yesterday was a challenge and I had to prioritize.
So I gave myself permission to take a break.
It allowed me to push through the muck, gather perspective and re-center myself.
Begin at the beginning.
Take at a look at this picture.
Doesn't this fellow look like he is planning something amazing?
I appreciated the ponderous gaze and thought he might fit with the topic for the day (or make you laugh, both are good!).
Today's topic is success.
growing as a team.
Here's to a new week filled with beautiful potential!
I'll be honest with you, it's a low spoons day today.
Even with portioning out my spoons carefully this weekend, unexpected events used a large amount of resources.
And today I am being kind to my being and gently gathering spoons when able.
For those days when you're too tired to eat the frog.
This week, we have been talking about tasks.
Specifically, we have focused on how to start a task and how to make it more manageable.
Today, we are going to focus on what to do when you "can't even"...
cooking the frog
Yesterday we talked about three ways to get through the slump.
I heard from one lovely reader that they would likely not eat a live frog, even if it was presented. I thought this was wonderful because it challenged me to read the quote again. I had not thought of the task in that way.
It DOES say eat a live frog.
3 ways to beat the slump
That good ol' slumpy day of the week.
I'm feeling a bit slumpy myself, so let's make something of it!
What is slumpy?
Slumpy is a feeling. A little like an, "I don't want to do anything except maybe throw a temper tantrum" feeling.
Except you don't throw a temper tantrum because you have to "adult".
Fine. I'll be an adult. Ugh.
... And lack thereof.
Hello Lovelies! Here we are again.
Yesterday was new and exciting and I pushed myself to the edge of my comfort zone. But you know what? There was no vulnerability hangover today! Huzzah!
What's a vulnerability hangover? you ask.
putting the "star" back in starting!
If I could share one piece of information with you, it would be that I think you are awesome.
If there was a way I could press that into your awareness and your heart so you could feel truly loved, I would.
So here I am, sitting at my computer and wishing a little bit of grace into your heart.
The grace to grow.
The freedom to know that you are doing your best, and that's enough.
That even if some days "your best" feels so small and tiny and insufficient, that it is still enough - probably even more so than the days it feels easy.
I see you. I am proud of you. I am you.
My intention in starting this blog is to share the scattered pieces of my heart to help you become okay with yours.
I might bounce around topics, and jump around from point to point, but hey, it's my journey, and I am discovering what works best for me.
If I wait until I have a formed plan and a beautiful detailed perfect map, I won't start. There is always something to improve.
Always something that feels unworthy or unfinished.
But you know what? I am not finished.
I am worthy. I want to take you on a journey of creation as we create ourselves into our best continuing selves.
Because I am always becoming.
I am allowed to not know what the finished product is going to look like.
What I DO know is that it is awesome regardless.
You are awesome regardless too.
So, forgive this scattered journey - and join me in creation.
Join me in owning awesomeness and challenging the concept of perfect. Redefine perfect and make it work with you and for you!

I wish you a beautiful week filled with starting. Huzzah!
You are loved.
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
