24 hours in a day.
23 posts written so far in May.
"...it MAY BE that..."
this last post being the 24th is symbolic, significant, or a combination of both.
If 24 hours complete a day, it's only fitting the 24th complete #TheMaybeClock.
I wish I could tell you I planned it that way. I wanted to write every day. I told myself I would. And I went 24 for 31. Along the way I found the need to take a day off a week. I chose Sunday to be that day. I have learned the value of rest if I truly want to be at my best.
So I guess I'm 28 for 31.
My consistency grade on this writing project would be an A-.
But here's the thing...
If I gave myself a grade based on how bad I beat myself up for missing the three days it would be far worse.
And that might be the biggest takeaway for me in this project.
We need to find joy in the process, not seek perfection as the only sign of progress.
What area of life are you tired of saying "MAYBE" to?
Is it something you need to pick up? Set aside? Go all-in on? Walk away from?
Whatever your story is, and wherever your journey takes you, I'll be praying that you find the courage and encouragement that you need to make the most of the 24 hours you are given each day.
Notice I said MAKE THE MOST OF.
You aren't going to be perfect.
No one is.
So as the last few moments tick away on the #TheMaybeClock, and a new project starts for me, I'll look forward to sharing from my heart the best way I know how.
And when I run out of steam on any given day I will leverage the lessons that I learned about my journey in writing #TheMaybeClock this month...
"...it MAY BE that..."
I need to stop and rest once in a while to be a better writer.
I need to be ok when perfect isn't the outcome.
Can you relate to those?
Rest + My Best = Progress.
I like that as the last thought from #TheMaybeClock.
Short, sweet, and easy to remember.
But...before we leave, I can't wait to tell you about our next series!
If you've ever felt set aside, forgotten about, or wondered if you were ever going to get the opportunity to live out what your heart has been beating out of your chest about...you know what it feels like to live life on "The Back Burner".
I've been there.
Still am in some aspects.
And when I see the company I'm in, I know that #TheBackBurnerLife wasn't meant to be a permanent destination, but rather one of the most important and epic parts of our journey through life.
More on that tomorrow.
