I really, really love blogging..

Really! I do!

But I have this vision of what I want my blog to be...inspiring, funny, honest, encouraging, beautiful, thought-provoking...I could go on.

And I've realized that's been true in lots of places in my life.

My point is, my need for perfection has kept me away from here, it's kept me from opening up to friends, it's even kept me from praying... because I feel if I don't have all the time I want to devote to something, why bother?

But the truth is, I don't have all the time I want. For anything. I have exactly the amount of time I have.

So, I'm making a new commitment to you, this blog, my family, God...

I'm going to take the time I do have and use it. Use it all up.

And when my endeavors don't turn out perfectly, at least I will know I didn't waste time worrying about it.

Today I'm living as an imperfect Christian, wife, mother, friend, blogger...but I'm okay with that. In fact, I'm rejoicing.

I'm striving to do better, be better everyday.

I know I can with the Lord's help.

Thank you for all your support!

I understand ~from one perfectionist to another. I love the friends I have made blogging and not once has someone pointed out my mistakes~I always find them myself. There are no such thing as perfect people! Have a great evening!

Leigh, I feel the same way many times. I freeze up when I can't get done what needs to happen, feel life is raging out of control, feel squeezed on all ends by time...then suddenly I realize my focus is not where it needs to be! Do what I can with today, right now, because in 2 seconds, it will be gone. Thanks for sharing! I will pray for you too...Misty

Hi Leigh, I love your new found commitment. We so often set our goals so high that they are unattainalbe. We are so hard on ourselves. You lead by example, and this is an example I will try to emulate. :)
