Late To The Party by Kimberly Sabatini

It's almost 9pm on my date to post and I'm just trying to get my act together. I thought about skipping this post. I thought about how I really need to get my act together because everyone else seems to be able to juggle ALL THE BALLS and clearly I'm not up to snuff.



And then I reminded myself of a few things...

I did do things today and they were important--they just weren't this thing.

Everyone's perfect life on social media is probably just as messed up and unorganized as mine. And if it's not they probably have other issues.

If I'd written this blog post earlier, I can guarantee it wouldn't have been THIS post. I would have been blabbering at you about something else. And today, maybe you needed to hear this as much as I did...

It's never too late to start something new...try being kind to yourself. Even if you're late to the party, I still think it's worth it. <3

What are you the hardest on yourself about?

  1. TOTALLY agree that it's never too late. (But I always seem to beat myself up about not getting enough done during the day...no matter how much I accomplished!)

    1. You're preaching to the choir! I'm right there with you. But I'm working on it. We should all work on it <3

  2. Agreed, it's never too late! Glad to see you made it, and don't beat yourself up about it, sounds like you had a lot going on.

    1. I'm always amazing at how much more forgiving and tolerant I am with other people vs myself.

  3. That I decided not to buy that Gutenberg Bible at a lawn sale . I used to obsess about tons of shouldas, then one day I realized the day I die, I'll have added something to that list, but everything on it will become someone else's shoulda. Life has been smoother ever since. Enjoy your day.

    1. A fine philosophy, Berek! I give myself 24 hours for beating myself up, then shelve the angst and move on.

    2. That's a great way of thinking about it. I just read the Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*** and it talks a lot about this. I guess it was soaking into my subconscious--in a good way.

    3. I totally have to read that. I'm right there with you! ;-)

  4. I'm hardest about the worth of my own writing. We talk a lot about the doubt monster but the truth is, I've had ONE successful book out of the bunch. It's getting harder for me to keep remebering why I wanted to write in the first place.

    Because I had something to say. Because no one ever truly listened to what I said. I want to change hearts and open minds. I don't think I am. or can... and that leads frequently to 'why bother?'

  5. I am late to the party for commenting on your post! I haven't had a chance to read any of these this month, so I'm catching up all at once. I'm not juggling all the balls--I don't even know where the balls are. I'm hard on myself about my whole life. How do I know since, as a writer and a mother my work is mostly unseen, that I'm "contributing" enough to the world? I don't. And I beat myself up about it all the time.
