This week I’m thankful for… giving myself a break.

I had quite a few intentions and deadlines fall short in November and I’m actively allowing myself to not feel bad about them.

You know how I wanted to thank people every day in November?* I did it for two days. The two days before we got Franklin, on November 3rd. Since then, I’ve been lucky if my hair is washed and I make it to a meeting on time.

I also planned to launch a few new exciting things next Tuesday. But based on the load of work I have on my plate right now, it’s getting delayed.

Oh, and I also still have my Thanksgiving decor up. At this point I’m debating if I’ll do any holiday decor at all.

And you know what? That’s okay.

Have a great weekend and thank you for reading!

 

* Did anyone complete the challenge? If so, how did it go?!

 

  • I know exactly how you feel. I just got a puppy and suddenly I am so far behind on all deadlines. And I could seriously use a shower..

    Good for you for taking a break!

  • Ahh, I know how you feel! Even though I KNOW it’s good for accountability, I sometimes debate about telling people when I plan my goals and big announcements, for this very reason–so I don’t have one more reason to feel bad when life gets in the way and things fall behind! We just need to let things fall how they will sometimes.

  • I did the 30 days of thanks challenge and it was really great! I got a little behind, but I am glad I did what I could. I posted about it on my twitter each day. Some things were a little silly, but I had a very long list on Thanksgiving when people asked. 😉

    It’s ok that you didn’t get a chance to do it. That’s what life is about. We can try to make it organized and go according to plan, but it doesn’t work that way. It’s messy! And it’s up to you to make it the best kind of cozy mess, full of love. Just remember to make sure to tell the people in your life that you are grateful next time you talk to them. I’m sure your big Thanksgiving had plenty of gratefulness to it and everyone left feeling your love for them!

    Have a happy weekend with Franklin and Mr. Lively kisses!
