Let's Do OK Today
Thursday, November 26, 2020
I made a new
from a comment on my previous blog 'Does it have to be my "best"?' (Although when I reread that comment just now, I see I didn't remember it exactly right--but that's OK!)
I just sent her a goodie with this message, that I thought might be helpful for anyone else who is exhausted by chasing perfection or struggles with disappointment when they don't manage to do their "best":
Your phrase "Let's do okay" has made it into my morning journaling more than once! I've taken to adding 'today' at the end: "Let's do okay today!" My inner parts can get really excited, because we know we can achieve that, rather than the elusive "best." This morning, one part laughed "We might even do Really Good today." I just find it energizing to know I won't fail. I wanted to send a special Thank You & wish you a joyous Thanksgiving Day.
And while I'm thankful to this Sparker in particular, I'm also grateful for this site and for teammates around the country and around the world who are committed to making positive changes. Happy Holidays to us all! Blessed Be, Amanda
