In my head, I am a wonderful person. I have all these grand ideas on what type of person I’d like to be. This imaginative idea of myself is always cheerful, is put-together, exercises, and never leaves things on her to-do list left undone.
I attempt to live up to these standards but nine out of ten times I fail. I don’t go to sleep early enough at night. I don’t eat healthy enough. Some mornings I don’t even have enough time to brush my hair before walking out the door.
This ideal Liz also stays up-to-date with this blog. She regularly posts new articles. When she thinks of something new to write about, she immediately gets to her laptop and starts typing away. She doesn’t have dozens of unfinished drafts.
Unfortunately, you guys are stuck with the real Liz and I am sorry about that. The real Liz has the best intentions. She just falls short. I always say I want to write in here at least once a week but life seems to get in the way. If I’m not too busy to post, then I’m too tired to post.
I am going to try my hardest to keep up with this blog from now on. There is so much I want to write about. I just need to find the time to write.
I realize now that I will fail. There will be weeks and even months where I push off writing here. Just know that this blog is not the only thing real life Liz puts off and doesn’t follow through with. There’s a long list of things. In my head, I’m a great person. In reality, not so much.
In an ideal world, I’d be the type of person who…
Goes shopping on Sunday and prepares food for the week. Who never lets food go to waste and winds up buying lunch the whole week.
Wakes up early enough every morning to leave the house with my hair done and makeup on.
Keeps up-to-date with current events and always knows about the latest news or scandal.
Makes time to fit at least 30 minutes of exercise in my routine daily.
Doesn’t eat brownies and ice cream for dinner.
Is able to always have time for work, family, friends, my bf, and myself.
Actually donates their time to a worthwhile cause and not just think about it.
Doesn’t just pin a million recipes but actually cooks them.
Always has a tidy apartment. Clothes are always put away, dishes are never left in the sink.
Doesn’t just talk/think about all the things they want to do or the type of person they want to be. I would just do.
I really gotta start working harder to live up to the standards of fictional Liz.
