It has been a long week of book edits, client work, and preparing for the holidays. Today’s writing is short and sweet.
Things I told myself this week:
Recognize when you’ve done the best you can. It might not be YOUR best, but it’s truly what you could give in that moment. Honor that, celebrate it. Don’t push yourself to the brink of a precipice. A life out of balance on the edge of a precipice is a precarious place to be.
There is a fine line between pushing yourself to be the best you can be and burnout. There is a fine line between best and burnout. You must be sensitive to this line.
Be gentle with yourself. Just because you want to do better doesn’t mean you COULD have done better. Honor the effort you gave, the brain you used, the body that carried you. And leave the past there.
Know the difference between THE best and YOUR best.
