It’s About Effort

It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.  – Jillian Michaels

It’s funny, or maybe it’s ironic that today it’s all about effort, when today, I actually thought about throwing in the towel. Yep, I am giving serious thought to being done with all the positive thoughts, the website, the twitter – all of it.  Why? Because it’s hard work, and I don’t feel like it’s doing it's about effortmuch of anything for anybody, except for stressing me out for posting so late at night!

But guess what?  Life isn’t always easy. In fact it’s hard work at times.  It’s hard work most of the time. Life is about work and it’s about effort. What it’s not about, or what it shouldn’t be about is validation from others. Nor should it be about what’s easiest.  It’s great when things are easy, but what’s more important is not giving up when it gets hard.

That being said, sometimes there are choices to be made, and if it’s about effort, it’s also about deciding how to prioritize and focus your effort.  You’re only human, and so am I and sometimes of effort may have to be directed elsewhere, and that’s where I am right now.  It’s all about effort, and trying your best, and I’m going to do my best to focus on what I have to get done, and direct my effort where it is needed.  And I’m reminding myself that I’m not perfect and I’m not super mom/super teacher/super blogger.  Until I get myself unburied from the roadblock that life dumped on me (not in front of me) I’ll to my best to post every day, and on the days I’m super late, or don’t post at all, I’m going to forgive myself.
