Plans


You know that saying, "Fail to plan = Plan to fail"?  Well, what's the saying for when you actually make a plan, and then the Universe laughs in your face? Is it "Shit Happens"? Or maybe something like, "You can plan all you want, but that doesn't mean it's going to go the way you planned it".  Or something like that.  Well, I planned to blog twice a week.  Nothing super crazy or involved, just two posts a week.  About anything.  I managed to get one post up last week, even though it was a super crazy week with tons to do for the treasurer job AND a sick kid.  I didn't feel too bad about it.  I knew I'd get back on the horse this week.  And then I got sick.  And that sickness kind of extended through to today.  I'm finally feeling human again.  But it's already Wednesday and I've only blogged once.

Is blogging about being sick exciting? No.  Is it worthy of blogging about?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  All I know is it's part of my story.  And as Tiffany (my awesome, glittertastic life coach) said, my story matters.  It's just as valid as anyone else's story.

My inclination is always to blog about exciting things.  Or fun times.  But that's not the whole story. The non-fun, non-exciting times aren't any less valid than the fun times.  I love reading about the gritty, "real" stuff that my favorite bloggers post.  It humanizes them.  Makes them more relatable.  Makes me think that if they have crappy days and STILL manage to create amazing things, maybe me and my crappy days can, too.  So the fact that I had a fever, and couldn't get out of bed for a few days, and my husband was a single parent all weekend long may not be thrilling.  But it's real life.  Just like yours.  We aren't really all that different from each other.  But we'll never know that unless we all share the good, the bad AND the mundane.
