#Igot5onit99 | Day.81

As the days dwindle down on my 99-day challenge, I find myself much more mindful of what I am doing, where I stand on the path towards my goals, and firm in my steadfast journey into my becoming.  Yet and still.. I cannot say with absolute certainty what that will look like.

AND I am okay with that…

Okay with just pushing myself towards certain goals and trying not to assert a false sense of control over what that is supposed to mean & look like.  If I have learned anything in these 31 years of mine, it’s that planning is crucial to serve as a compass, but nature’s winds have the final say in which shores you find yourself at bay.

There are always so many more things I would have liked to do by the end of the day, weekend, or even month – but I am learning to be thankful for what I did and who I shared the time with, rather than obsessing about it not “going as planned.”

I sit her freshly finished with my workout about to jump in the shower at 11 p.m. & braid my hair afterwards.  Would I like to get things done sooner? Absolutely?  Would I forego the time I spent cleaning the kitchen or reading to my little girl? Absolutely not! So, I am okay with where I stand and know that I am blessed beyond measure.
