Like I was saying the other day, no one can prepare you for the things you believe you are capable of and the things you actually are capable of. This goes both ways; just like you are far more capable of doing certain things that you might think you can’t, there are some other things that you feel capable of that you just aren’t.
This is what we like to call a reality check.
For me, September and October have been the months of reality checks. For some reason, these two months I’ve gotten some wild hairs up my butt or SOMETHING that have “inspired” (???) me to try a bunch of new things.
But not just try them — dive head first into them.
- Blog everyday for 31 days
- Work out everyday for 30 days
- Reread the entire Harry Potter series (I’m on book 6 since starting 5 weeks ago)
- Meal plan every week
- Come up with and maintain weekly chores schedule
- Continue doing other life things as usual
Let me just be honest and say that this blog post is not like the one in which I find out I’m capable of way more than I think I am. Oh, on the contrary. REALITY CHECK: I am stretched T H I N.
But it’s all good, though! Because sleep is great. And sometimes I do that sleep thing.
