I have been neglectful of my blogging responsibilities. The dictionary defines neglect as giving little attention or respect to; to leave it undone on unattended to.
Well, that sounds harsh and by nature, that definitely is not my style. Anyone who knows me would verify that.
Fact of the matter is, after years of perfectionist behaviors and trying to be all to everybody I’ve realized, once again that is beyond the realm of possibilities for my existence. If you know me, I’m certain you are applauding and cheering!
I have freed myself from the bonds of expectations…now is that a fleeting momentary grant? Or will the desire seep into my true core of being?
Only time will reveal the truth.
I’m trying to ‘do it all’ at this very moment; be the perfect teacher, be the perfect mother and wife, be the perfect steward, be the perfect writer and blogger, sell my book, blah, blah, blah. It was only through a blog friend; Maggie at Just between You and Me! did I realize I needed to follow the advice I gave her; give yourself permission to be human.
Definitely my Ah-HAH moment!
So am I truly neglectful?
NO, just a normal woman trying not to disappoint!
