Are you juggling life to the best of your ability and still feel like you aren't doing enough? SAME.
Maybe you are working full time, a stay at home mom/ dad, in school, trying to work out and be active, pondering healthy meals to make at home, being a parent, being a dream spouse, keep the house clean, and the yard kept up, and still feel like you are coming up short?
It is totally unrealistic to believe that we can do it ALL. Would it be nice? Absolutely! But not practical. We hold ourselves to this standard of getting all of this stuff done, and when we don't get it done, we are disappointed with ourselves. heather recently did a Mental Health Monday post of our instagram about this recently. Creating this massive to do list, continually adding things to it, and continually feeling let down... We have GOT to change our way of thinking about this.
As I was chatting on the phone to one of my girlfriends the other day, I was sharing my overwhelm with her about how there just isn't enough hours in the day to get everything done that I wish I could get done. She gently reminded me, "in different seasons of life you will have different levels of capacity to get things done. In this season of your life, you are doing all that you can, and IT IS ENOUGH."
As I sat there, and knew this was very true... I couldn't argue with her. I just had to sit there and let her be right.... I had to accept that I am doing mt best, and it is enough.
I just want you to know that as long as you are putting your best foot forward, and doing your best, then it IS ENOUGH. You do not owe any explanations to yourself or anyone else. You are allowed to celebrate the small wins as much as you do the big wins. You will differ in different seasons, on different days of your life depending on how you feel, what you are going through, and what life throws at you that day..... it is okay to be exactly where you are at and still not beat yourself up about what you did or didn't do that day.
You are loved, and you are doing enough.
