It's been forever, friends.
"Better done than perfect", she said.
Better done, than perfect. Alright, it seems easy.
I can do this...
Guys, the spirit of where this ALL started was way more than just the Instagram account. What it's become. The followers, the conversations, the friends, perfecting that feed over time... that's all great. That's all more than I ever thought this would be, actually. It's all actually, genuinely, super fucking fun. I love this little community I've created over what really is 'just an app on a phone'.
But what started all of this was my desire to sit down and write. To sit down and to just write, through fun and humour, about what it's been like to become a mom. I love to write. It's the only thing I can truly do to slow down and just 'be' (I bet you a million bucks my husband just rolled his eyes reading the corniness in that last one... hi Sean I love you).
Over the last 6 months, it's been really hard to find the energy to just sit and write. I write, and wait for it to be 'perfect' before posting. The reality of life right now is that it's never going to be perfect, so, I haven't posted in a while. I have so many half-done blog posts because I just couldn't get into that vibe. I was too tired (rightfully so, I was pregnant in a pandemic with two toddlers at home and full time job), and writing never made it on the priority list.
I've been listening to podcasts, hoping it might reignite my passion for writing again, hoping it would give me direction. (hi Sean glad you're still here)
And then she said it. I was listening to Jenna Kutcher's 'Goal Digger Podcast', and she said it.
"Better done than perfect".
So, let's get back to what this was all initially about, shall we? Writing, as a way for me to do something I love. Something that was truly just 'for me', but that over time has become a lot about all of you, too. And I'm happy to have you all here.
So you'll just have to get ready for really random blog posts about things that I want to write about and share about. It won't be perfect. But I'll be writing, and I'll be sharing as I go.
