inspire me Monday: second chances


There’s no point in wasting time feeling sorry for yourself because you made a mistake, did the wrong thing, or disappointed someone. I’ve had to learn this lesson the hard way, as this attitude runs in my family. We’re human—we make mistakes! We fail sometimes. We disappoint others and ourselves. But every second is a second chance…we should stop worrying about what we did and worry about what we can do.

Sunday Resolutions Update

For those of you who are still interested in my resolutions updates (and by “for those of you” I mean “for me so I’ll get my butt in gear”), I’ll say up front I’ve not been doing well on most of my goals. There is a lot going on in my life right now…all the things that come with the end of the “fiscal year” at work, a huge project at work that I’m spearheading, and now house stuff.

Yes, indeed, Jonathan and I are looking to buy our first home. We’re pretty far along in the process…pending a home inspection and a loan approval (and closing, of course), we should be getting a house next month.

I’m very excited about it, but I do tend to slack on my resolutions when I have so much going on. I don’t think I’m going to be able to give 100% to my resolutions in the coming weeks. I have to give myself a break while I’m so busy. But I do think I can do better. And I will, starting today!

For those of you who are interested, here’s a picture of the house. Hopefully Jonathan and I will get out soon to take pictures of our own, but this picture on the listing is the best I can do for now.


Thanks for keeping me accountable. I hope you’re all doing well with your goals!
