Time Really Does Fly

I haven't done a post in a while so I just thought I'd check back up with all you guys. It's been a crazy few months. I can't believe that so much has happened, I have a new niece and my nephew is turning two years old today! They're the sweetest kids alive and I love them to pieces!

I'm so fortunate to have such a wonderful family, I couldn't imagine life without them all.
I was just thinking that a few years ago, I would have hardly thought that at the age of 14, my sisters would been married off, some in other states. And I'd be an aunt to two chubby popcorn jelly beans.
Time really does fly! I thought as a child that adults were crazy when they said that. To an impatient kid addicted to skittles and starburst, time almost felt like it was at a stand still.

I've been trying to get into writing again which is way harder than I thought it would be. I can't tell you how many times I rewritten the same simple paragraph in the beginning of my story. I seem to have this crazy expectation of what my own writing should look like, but, the truth is I can't write like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, so I guess I'm just going to have to come to terms with that. . .

People always say to strive for the best, which is great advice to an extent. Because, sadly not all of us can be the best at everything we would love to be great at. As sad as that is that is, it's a reality. We can try to do the best of our ability, I usually find that the best of my ability is not the absolute best and I strive for a unreachable goal.
 My new catchphrase is, 'Well. . . Good enough.' Because, usually it is good enough and there's no need to stress out over it.

I don't have much more to say so, until later!
