It’s another day of being Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and Day 4 of my NaNoWriMo –– National Novel Writer’s Month journey. It’s also my first day working my 9-5 and trying to meet my daily writing goals. Project: Hold on Her Heart, Book 2 in the Lee’s Legacy Series. Goal: 50, 000 words in 30 days, which is about 1,700 a day. Today, after my busiest work day, Dance Fusion and then writing for about 2 hours, I got 679. I’ll take them! Because they were carefully crafted words that enhance the story based on inspiration from this creative process coupled with feedback from my writing group. Besides, it’s my novel, so I can write how I want to! That’s the lesson I’m learning on giving myself grace. It’s also how I’m minimizing this particular D –– personal or professional challenges or barriers women face –– in the form of a deadline.
I pray you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic today and give yourself what I’m sure is some much needed grace as well. Whether it’s around your writing or other goals. I’m over 5,000 words further along in my novel than I was on Friday. That’s forward progress. Even if I didn’t make today’s. It’s not like I’ve been slacking all day. Besides, a girl’s gotta eat, sleep, shower and take care of her family, right? Some time with the Lord helps, too…I can close my laptop tonight knowing I made the most of this particular gift of a day. And as long as we get to the final destination, –– a great D –– every step, no matter how big or small, is a right step on the journey toward maximizing beauty and our best lives.
Around what goals can you give yourself some grace to meet them the way God has uniquely equipped you?
Be savvy & chic,
~Pink Collar Coach
