Not Everything Needs To Be Done
Today’s Small Stuff reading hit home. (Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff . . . It’s All Small Stuff by Richard Carlson Ph.D)
“I may not be perfect, but I am okay just the way I am.”
To me, it means realizing that not every idea, or to do item is meant to be done. Wants and needs change over time. That great idea that has been haunting me for weeks, months, or even years, might have been only briefly important and that moment came and went.
Let go. Not just of to do items, but ideas and expectations that served their purpose. They motivated and moved me at the time, but that time has come and gone.
There are always too many things I want to do or try, but the reality is not all of them are gonna make it in the twenty-four hours I have been given. Still there is no harm in putting them on my list of to do or to try. Just not all of them are priority or will I get to.
And that is OK. Today, as I am, is ok.
Accepting your self as you are is tough sometimes. I didn’t realize that a lot of people go through that struggle, but it sure is nice knowing you aren’t the only one.
