I Confess

Posted November 6, 2015 by Briana in Personal / 2 Comments

I have a confession to make to all of you.
Lately, I’ve let some things fall through the cracks, and I want to apologize. I’ve taken on a little water and am now doing everything I can to bail myself out before the boat capsizes.

I hope it’s not too late.

I Confess

In the past year, I’ve experienced a lot of change. From moving to another state to leaving my job and moving back to the same state I came from and finishing a novel, these past twelve months have been full of challenges, surprises, and personal growth. I couldn’t have made it this far without your support. Really, it means the world to me.

In the past year, I’ve also made promises I couldn’t keep. Regretfully, I offered to read and review books, write guest blog posts, film weekly blogs, continue my blog posting schedule, and so much more. I was unable to deliver on most of these promises, and for that, I am sorry.

A lot of you will think I’m being too hard on myself, but I truly feel guilty. If I have offered or promised anything to you in the past year and have yet to follow through with it, please forgive me. I’m still getting settled into my life, but I still feel terrible. I feel like I’ve let you all down. I’m confessing because I feel awful and I want you all to hold me accountable from here on out. If you want something from me and haven’t heard back, shoot me an email and give me a little nudge. I would really hate for anyone to feel ignored or neglected!

At the end of the year, in my annual review post, I’m going to share some ideas I have for staying organized and following through in the coming year. Right now, I’m saying I’m sorry and asking, once again, for your forgiveness and mercy.

I love each and every one of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I think it’s impossible to not let things fall through the cracks. I always promise people (and myself) that I’ll do certain things, but I take on too much and then like you I feel guilty when I don’t get everything done. I think you just have to accept that you can’t do everything that you want. I think it’s all time management, which I’m not exactly the best at…but I’m working on it.

    • You’re right, Ely–time management is essential to productivity and organization. Since writing this post, I’ve started jotting down everything in a little spiral notebook, and I’m already seeing results. I’m also trying to take a few minutes at the end of the day and beginning of each morning to go over what I want to accomplish. I highly recommend it!
