Oops – I Missed Posting Yesterday

As you may or may not have noticed, I did not post here on this, as I had promised to do for 30 days in a row.  But the truth is, I totally forgot.  My stepson arrived last night for a 2 week visit, the house was full of family, and even though it was an early night, it never once crossed my mind.  This morning though, I suddenly remembered that I had a mental plan to write a post, and then came home and just like that poof – all thoughts just vanished into thin air.

But you see I’m right back here, admitting to my humaness, and getting right back in the saddle so to speak.  I would have loved not to have missed my first blog post on the 3rd day, but it happened, and I know the perfectionist in me says, I have failed and I need to start over or just abandon the idea.  I’m not doing any of those things.

Honestly, when I realized I had missed the blog post, I was going to try to write a post this morning and another one tonight, as a way to stay on track, but it didn’t happen.  I had other plans for today, and while my blog posts are important, it wasn’t so important that it needed to disrupt my other work.  What that really means is, this is the only blog post for today.

I also had prepared a list of topics to make sure that I had something to say for 30 days, and when I read over what I planned for yesterday, I found I was having trouble warming to my topic.  I had no idea why I choose that topic, so maybe I was having an SEO moment and found a commonly searched term, but it wasn’t me, so maybe I didn’t just forget, maybe I forgot on purpose.

What I really want you take from this confession is that you don’t have to be perfect, but you do need to keep moving.

I’ll be back with a new post tomorrow and I hope you finish what you start.
