Why It’s OK to NOT Have it All Figured Out….

I think this post is highly needed for everyone in the world.

It seems we all have our moments, no matter what walk of life we are, where we feel like we should have it “figured out.”

Well guess what?

We shouldn’t.

Why do I say that?

Is it just to make us all feel better?

No.

I say this because if we had it all “figured out” then how would we grow?

Afterall, it’s important as human beings to constantly be improving and growing in all aspects of life right?!

So then why do we beat ourself up when we don’t cook like Martha Stewart or lift weights like John Cena?

Of course there are people that have areas in their life where they thrive. I mean Martha Stewart probably does have one of the greatest gardens out there, but can she change the oil in her car too?

Maybe she can, I don’t know. But what I do know is that Martha Stewart has areas in her life where it’s not all “figured out.” And guess what? That’s great!

The overall point here is to remind you to embrace the areas your working through.

As a stay at home mom of three little kids there’s areas I’d love to have it all figured out. I’d love to have the cleanest home, better family scripture study, workout better…. and the list goes on.

However, at the end of the day, if I can continue to improve myself each day, that’s all that matters.

And we may have days where we don’t do great… because we are human.

So am I giving you an excuse to stop trying and to stop setting goals? No way!

I’m giving you some mercy.

Even more, I’m telling you that you don’t have to get mad at yourself all the time for not being where you THINK you should be in life.

Give yourself a break.

We tend to give everyone else a break but ourselves.

So keep chugging along, doing your best.

And just remember, NOBODY has it all “figured-out.”

Until next time,

xoxo,
