fake it til you make it: august’s ultimate coffee date

“Fake it til you make it” is a phrase that has come up a lot for me in the last few weeks. I’ve got a lot of feelings to share this August, for sure. I’m ready, coffee in hand, to join in the Ultimate Coffee Date with Coco and Deborah ! Join them in their linkup!

Over coffee, I would tell you…

That I have been waking up every day with lots of feelings of inadequacy. I hate when this happens and the only way to get over it is to get up, get moving and… well, fake it til I make it. Some days are way harder than others but I am grateful for family and friends who are understanding and patient with me when I need it. I am also super thankful for coffee.

Over coffee, I would tell you…

That we are running a 5K together as a family next week. It’s been a while since the three of us have done a race together and I can’t wait. I don’t know if we will stick together (one of us has been in training, while the other two…. not so much), but it will be a fun night anyway.

The medal is absolutely on point and I can’t wait to add it to the collection!

Over coffee, I would tell you…

That I had the best time with Meghan and friends this past weekend. It was a lot of new people all at once, which can be hard for me, but I was able to get through my initial nerves and fall into a comfort zone.

I don’t always let myself go wild and just indulge, but this time I did. From staying in bed late, to lounging in the sun almost all day, to drinking gram-worthy frozen drinks, it was just lovely. I only ran one time, and even that was just a quick 4 miler to say I did. Sometimes, it’s nice to let go.

Over coffee I would tell you…

That little man is earning his next advancement and five merit badges at his first BSA Court of Honor this weekend. The transition from Cub Scouts to BSA has been an amazing one for him. He has really found a home in this Troop and he is so enthusiastic about continuing all the way to Eagle Scout. It’s really awesome to see him passionate about this and we are so supportive of this journey.

On that note, he wouldn’t go to his meeting until he ironed his own shirt this past week. As someone who hates ironing, it was super impressive to see him pull out the iron and board on his own and ask me to help him.

Over coffee I would tell you…

We have one more week of summer! The plan is to fill it with as much fun as possible before the first day! It’s going to be such a great year and while we are sorry to see summer come to an end, we are looking forward to the next steps.

As I’ve said, I’m not sure I’m cut out for this middle school things but I’m faking it as best I can so that little man feels confident going forward.

And there you have it!

What would you share over coffee?

Do you ever feel like you “fake it til you make it”?

    Fake it til you make it? All the time.

    Glad you had a fun weekend. Sometimes you just need weekends like that.

    Can’t believe your summer is almost over. It feels like it just begun.

    Enjoy your last week. However you are probably looking forward to cooler temps.

    Oh, gosh, you have no reason to feel inadequate! Chase that self-doubt away! That medal is amazing. I’m sure you’ll have fun. So does school start in 2 weeks? Most won’t start until after Labor Day here.

      Thank you. I know this response is late but yes. We started back to school today. I think because of the heat, we get out in late-mid-May and go back early August. It’s pretty crazy that so many people are still enjoying the summer, but we’ve been home since Memorial Day.

    Yup, been there done that! Sometimes I just fall into a funk and it can last a day or a few weeks. But like you said, you just keeping moving forward and fake it till you make it!

  4. Hard to believe it’s August. It’s weird to not be doing all the back to school stuff anymore. It goes fast once middle school enters the scene…
