Perfection Isn’t Real

30 Day Blogging Challenge #15.

Here was my day yesterday:

7:30 wakeup

7:40 begin 8 mile run 

8:50 struggle to finish 8 mile run without throwing up

9:00 decide the fact that my stomach has hurt 24/7 for the past two weeks  and ^ happening meant it was time to go to Urgent Care

9:20 get a completely flat tire on the way there, I’m talking 100 to 0 in 5 seconds

9:30 call my parents bawling my eyes out because everything was going wrong

9:40 get my shit together enough to leave my car and take a taxi to and from Urgent Care

11:30 return from Urgent Care where they put me on an antibiotic because they were unsure what was up

11:40 call AAA to fix my tire

1:00 AAA puts a donut on my tire, I tip him $20 because that is the only bill  I had on me, and I make animg_0015 appointment at Goodyear for 3pm to get a real tire

1:oo-2:45 I attempt to make up some of the work I was missing in classes that day

3:00-5:20 sit at Goodyear, still with stomach pain, until my car is fixed

6:00-7:00 bike at the gym until enough stress was released

8:00-an hour ago sleep 12 hours and pretend like yesterday didn’t happen

 

I didn’t post this for sympathy, or anything like that at all.  I posted this because I am human, everyone is human, and being human means not everything will be glitter and rainbows all of the time.  Not everything will be perfect, and that is OK.  I posted this because I get too many emails and DM’s asking how I keep my sh!t together so well, how I keep my mindset on right all of the time, how I live so “perfectly” and as much as I love hearing from each and everyone of you (srsly keep it up), just because I run a blog and an IG, that does not make me any different from you! I have hiccups in the road, exhibit 100000^ and of course I have days where I am just not feelin it.  We all do. There is a quote

“There is a crack in everything, that is how the light gets in.”

and that quote is the truth.  Sure, maybe I don’t post my struggles on here as often as I post the better moments, but the tougher times are the ones that teach me lessons, the ones that make me stronger, the ones that ground me and push me to remember what I am here for.  Times like yesterday are the ones that challenge me, the ones that change me, the ones that help me become me. 

The bad days are there for a reason–we just have to accept them, let them build us, and move on.

As perfect as you can try to be, and take it from a type a perfectionist… perfection. isn’t. real. YOU are real.

See you tomorrow– You Make You!

    MY DARLING, WHAT. Holy smokes this is no fun at all, I’m so sorry all this crap happened to you. You are as resilient as anything. The bad days are undercover the best days (like days, months, years later when they’re over). ♥︎ ♥︎ ♥︎ Keep on keeping on, girl.
