It’s human nature to feel the need “to-do”. Most of us are compelled towards something that drives us, challenges us, or entertains us. We like to have goals and along with these goals are preferences and opinions of how we want life to be, or wish it would be.
The trouble begins when our expectations interrupt or interfere with enjoying life. Expectations, reasonable or not, can distract us from seeing what’s wonderful in our life because we’ve raised the bar so high, perhaps too high, that any alternate version or less than what we have in mind, simply won’t do.
Let me say, this kind of mindset just isn’t fair!
Yes, have goals. Big goals of excellence and expertise and innovation. Yes, set performance standards that require our best effort, diligent practice and unwavering commitment. Yes, have big dreams of how our effort and dedication will create positive and meaningful changes to our life.
But please, let’s not forget to applaud the million little steps we’ve taken and will continue to take in our pursuit of personal or professional excellence. On the road to getting what we want, that’s where we get what we need to live our best life. One full of good memories, good feelings, good relations. One where we are stimulated, challenged and enjoying meaningful activities. Most importantly, a life filled with joy and love.
Don’t beat yourself up for what you couldn’t do, or didn’t do. Just do the best you can now, now, and now.Akiroq Brost
Let’s show ourselves the respect we deserve during our transformation, because in the end it’s not exclusively where we end up that defines our life journey, it’s the million little steps in between that illustrates our true life story.
Keep it Simple,
