Sometimes I fail

Well, yesterday was a big fat fail for our game day.  It just was completely impossible to fit it into the day, with basketball, worship practice, you know life.  And that is ok.

Actually, I fail at lots of things, and sometimes I feel like admitting them makes me real!!

Right?

Because the people in life that look like they have it all together; never fail, perfect hair, perfect make-up, perfect husband, perfect kids.  Well, they just don’t exist, and they are lying to the world.  If we would all take a little time to share our failures once in a while life sure would be easier for us all!

I have failed at about 500 diets

Friendships

PTO president

Biology 100 (yes, I took it 3 times until I passed with a C)

Being a good wife

Being a good mom

This Blog (I mean, obviously I don’t have many followers!)

Consistency in my devotion time

Running programs

Saving Money

Budgeting

Being a good sister

Being a good daughter

But, admitting this failures doesn’t mean I think I am bad.  NOT AT ALL.  I actually think that I’m ok!  Sure, I don’t have it altogether, but I am definitely trying! I am definitely not ok with failing at all of these things forever!  I love that I don’t have to just settle with being a freaking failure at life.  I can improve.  ALL OF THESE THINGS are things that I can get better at.

So, my point is, let’s all be a little vulnerable.  Let’s let our failures fly, be willing to admit we need help!  We can’t do it all alone.  Because all alone, well, it really sucks.

  1. Now for tomorrow, I want you to list the things you are successful at. Not all of these are failures either. You are a terrific daughter!! No one is perfect at everything. Perhaps you try to hard to be perfect rather than accepting that we all fail at times. I love you so much and you are a great mom!
