Back to School


I remember getting report cards in school and feeling so, so proud every time I got an A. I kept craving those high-achieving marks throughout my whole education. 

From kindergarten to college, that’s who I was. But it didn’t stop in the classroom. 

I wanted to get an A in my career. In my relationships. In my family. In my financials. At my job, as a mom, as a mentor and friend…It drove me nuts how BAD I wanted to be perfect at EVERYTHING! 

I was spinning my wheels, trying to get that gold star and feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. 

Then *lightbulb*. I finally figured it out. 

There are no gold stars in adulthood. There is no “A”. There is no arriving. 

I’m a work-in-progress. We all are. 

Because perfect isn’t possible. There’s no way to get 100% in this little quiz we call life! 

So now I’ve learned to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. 

I’m creating my own rubric. And I’m choosing to give myself an “A+”.
