Quote of the Day – 2/27/16

“Nobody’s perfect. We’re all just one step up from the beasts and one step down from the angels.” -Jeannette Walls

You probably noticed that I missed a day. Most of you probably expected it to happen sooner or later. I can hear the bitter grumbles in the back of my mind now.

“Liar. Fraud. You said you were turning over a new leaf. You told me you were committing to writing, at least, one post a day every day, if not two. You let us all down, and you’re a failure. Whoever told you that you have no follow through was right. You will never be a successful writer. You don’t have any real commitment. No wonder you’ve been working on one book for ten years, and you’re still not finished. You know you’re a fraud and a failure. Stop wasting everyone’s time and just give up.”

Okay, so y’all might not be saying those things, but those are the voices I hear in my head after missing a day of writing. I should have posted yesterday, but I got called to substitute teach at the last minute. It was unexpected and the school system I work for has blocked WordPress. I could not access my content editor.

I also had to study for and take a skeletal anatomy unit test. It was challenging and exhausting, but I put in the effort and made 100%. I had an imperfect day and I did my best to work around it. I didn’t get around to my writing for the day and that’s ok. You will occasionally find things that trump your calling, like working toward contributing more to your marriage.

I am human. I make mistakes. I drop the ball. Sometimes my commitment to my writing slips a little. All of these things are ok and they will happen because I’m human. As long as I pick myself up, recommit to my calling, and keep moving forward, slipping for one day isn’t going to destroy the grand scheme of things.
