IT’S NOT ALL OR NOTHING

I’ve gotten lost lately. Lost in cyberspace. Lost in the world of “business-y moms.” Lost in the world of “better blogging webinars” and better pinterest/instagram/facebook/twitter use. Better websites. Better strategy.

Better better better. More more more. 

Fighting

It threatens to drown me with all its goodness. It overwhelms me and makes me want to throw up my hands and say “enough! I quit! I quit writing and I quit mompreneuring and if I can’t do it all, I can’t do anything.”

C’mon now. How silly for me to quit just because I can’t do it all. Of course I can’t do it all! I’m a human bean! (Yes, I said bean.)

Those thoughts you’re believing that say you’re not good enough or smart enough or doing enough are lies! I’m tempted to buy into them too.

But lies can just slink right back into their yucky little houses. Because we know the truth.

Doing something is wonderfully better than doing nothing.  

Sometimes I need that little reminder. What you are doing today, whether it’s baby steps or giant leaps toward your goals…is enough. It’s fabulous. It’s moving you in the right direction.

Did you have a bad day yesterday? Did you make a bad decision? It’s okay! Today is a new day. This breath is a new breath. His mercies are new every morning.

“The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
   His mercies begin afresh each morning.”

-Lamentations 3:22-23

  1. Everything does get overwhelming, but you are so right – one step at a time. And that step is better than no step. I love reading your words and am so happy every time I see a new post. Keep on keeping on.

    One thing I’ve learned is to add one thing at a time. Don’t try to do it all at once. I stuck with a regular posting schedule for a while – then I added something else – then something else. Makes it much more manageable and helps me stick with it once it’s become a habit.

    1. You are so encouraging Kim! Thank you so much. Yes, one thing at a time (sorta hard when I’m launching a book because there are 1300 things I should be doing. But one is better than none 😉
