Sometimes in this supposedly pretty packaged world, it can feel like you’re a hot mess. Or at least just not as “together” as that other girl over there. But just so you know it’s not just to you… most all of us feel just the same. Ok, maybe I shouldn’t take anyone down with me… 😉 I at least feel this way all the time.
I saw a similar meme on Instagram by Jill, and her response summed it up: “…. this is the perfect reminder that life is just messy. It just is. And sometimes so is my outfit and hair and house and inbox and calendar. I try to keep it all together – but sometimes my messy shows itself. And I had a light bulb moment that that is okay too.”
She nailed it. Even in my Type A world, my life is messy. There’s an abundance of all the things that need to get done and what only feels like fleeting hours. But, it is what it is, and it will all get done… or it won’t. And, I refuse to put up a facade that it’s all sunshine and roses and crossed-out, to-do lists because as much as I love crossing things off my to-do list (so much so that I might even write tasks as I’m completing them!), there’s always more to do.
So, all the things might be a little messy. That’s life. I’m embracing it.
