Yes, I know, this is not the most exciting picture in the world, and this will not be the most exciting post.

Truthfully, there are a lot of things that just aren’t working in my life right now.

I stay up all night struggling to write my posts, falling into bed at sunrise, too exhausted to accomplish anything the rest of the day. I eat junk food and mainline coffee, making me feel simultaneously sluggish and jittery. I get hung up on what I’m going to post for the day, whether anyone will like it, whether it will say what I want it to say, be what I need it to be, to the point that it’s not nearly as fun as it should be.

Right now, for tonight at least, I need eight hours of sleep. I need to wake up in the morning and feel like tackling this out of control spiral that has become my life. And part of that involves letting go of my own perfectionism and posting a “good enough” photo tonight.

I’m sorry, because you guys deserve better. But maybe, just maybe, I deserve better too. And in the end, if I do this right, perhaps we will all come out ahead.
