Welcome to Failing Imperfectly

Failure is a fear so many of us live with each day. We see failure as an absolutely horrible occurrence. We have been engrained with this belief from the time we were little.

No matter how hard we try, there is no true perfection that we can live. At least not according to the standard definition of perfect.

Failure keeps us moving onto better ways. Imperfection keeps life interesting.

Life. The Imperfect Way.

Tranquility Within

Last time I talked about choices and how we have the choice to take responsibility and control for our lives. I also mentioned a tidbit about the choices I made as a teenager. Today I want to expand on that. This is going to be one of my most vulnerable posts to date and I do want to warn you that if you have struggled with any of the things I’m going to talk about today, this post might be a trigger. So what will I talk about? Sex, drugs, alcohol, and looking for love outside of myself. While some of these things might be a trigger for some of you, I am sharing in hopes that I remind you that you are not the only one and that there are others of us who have been there or are currently there.

Choices

We all have choices that we make every single day. Some choices are easy to make while others take a lot of consideration. Some determine the direction of our lives and others have minimal impact. But that’s the thing. Every choice we make has some kind of impact on our life. Your decision to read this post will have some impact on your life. You have the choice of whether it will be a beneficial impact or not.

Self-Rejection

Now that we’ve talked about growing your own way, making the most of yourself, and learning and growing little by little, I want to talk about self-rejection. 

Self-rejection, not to be confused with self-reflection, is something we do, sometimes without even noticing it. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I started to learn what self-rejection is without actually having a term for it. Even once I started to learn, I didn’t apply it to my whole life. I only focused on it for my career. I didn’t even have the capacity to understand that it was something that I did in most of my life.

Little by Little

We’ve been talking about going your own way and making the most of yourself, so today I wanted to talk about what it takes to do both. The truth is that no matter how much pressure we put on ourselves or how many times we say “today is the day” or how many new weeks, months, or years we plan to do something new, nothing happens or changes all at once. No matter what we do, that thing, that effort, that goal, they are always, absolutely always, achieved little by little.

Make the Most of You

From an early age we learn from the societal expectations that we need to be like this famous person or that family member that does everything right and looks the right way. We are told we need to act right and do the responsible thing. We are pressured to do this or that because that is what the family believes in. 

Even if we aren’t told who we need to be like, we are told who we shouldn’t be like. This was more of the case in my life, at least externally. I consistently heard how this family member or that was stuck up or self-centered or whatever. I also heard how entitled my parents were to have everyone else do something for them.

Go Your Own Way

I was recently browsing a Facebook group for a couple of different inspirational influencers that I follow and I was shocked at the hate that people were laying down for other people. It’s as though these people expected the influencer that they follow to stay in the lane that brought them to the influencer. My gut reaction was that I wanted to defend the influencer and tell them how rude they are being. Then I realized a couple of different things.

Hello, my Imperfect Warriors!

Welcome to January!! 

Even though things are still not back to the normal we once knew, doesn’t it feel good to start a new year? Remember, you don’t need a new year, but there is definitely an awesome feeling to one.

2021

There is no disputing it, 2020 has been one hell of a year. It has been a year that nobody expected or could have planned for in any way possible. And since the year took a drastic turn so early, many people were already wishing for 2021 as early as April. The easiest answer was to get into a new year. Or was it?

Infertility 5 Years In

It’s been a while since I have talked about infertility and I had something that triggered me, so I thought I would talk it out with you. If you are on the infertility journey, this conversation may be a trigger for you.

It’s Your Reaction

I’ve heard it so many times in the personal development world and I shrugged it off. I didn’t think I could reset my attitude or mood in the moment by adjusting my reaction. Until I did it. Now I’m a believer.
