So first, I must admit that I didn’t post anything yesterday. It hit about 2am on Sunday morning that I did do a blog post. First I thought about quickly writing something and back-dating it. Then something truly oblivious but completely true hit me…I’m not perfect.
Yes, this news shocked me at first. What? I’m not perfect. I don’t understand how this can be. I mean, I’m Michelle. I have to be perfect…right?? Nope, I don’t have to be anything other than me!
Ok. Of course, I know that I’m not perfect, but sometimes I put so much pressure on myself to be everything for everyone that I forget that basic fact: I’m not perfect.
While my intention is always to do my best, sometimes I will (and have) fallen short. I want to be the best friend, daughter, godmother, etc to all those that I love. Yet, I have, in the past and probably in the future, made mistakes. I will say the wrong thing, do the wrong thing, and just generally screw up. All I can do is try very hard to make those moments as few as possible and apologize when I do mess up.
I say all this to let myself off the hook about missing the blog post. It wasn’t great news that I missed it, but it isn’t the end of world that I did. Learning to be kinder to myself is part of this journey that I am. As Pink sings in her song, F*&k Perfect, “make the voices in your head like you instead.” If anyone should like you, it’s the voices inside your own head, right??
