A reminder that while a break in the chain can be disheartening, it can’t erase the positive impact of every link that came before. $25 giclee print available in the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

Have you ever promised yourself you’d stick with a commitment only to slip up once and then convince yourself the WHOLE commitment was ruined? Like a 30-day challenge where you miss one day or two days and then suddenly it’s like the 15 days you put in before that were totally worthless?

I know I’m guilty of this in the past, namely with any kind of workout or fitness routine. If I fall off the wagon, I run as far away from the wagon as possible and chalk it up to a failed attempt at consistency.

But the truth is, it’s NOT too late to pick it back up. Whether it’s a workout routine you abandoned two months ago or a blog you haven’t updated since 2015 or that unfinished project that’s been collecting dust because you lost momentum… the work you’ve already put in counts for something.

If I’ve learned anything about consistency it’s that while a break in the chain can be disheartening, it can’t erase the positive impact of every link that came before AND, more importantly, every link that will come after.

So, whatever it is, pick it back up, dust it off, and start again. The past is the past but it’s a new day and a new chance to commit.
