Do your best

Thursday, July 07, 2011

My day started out good. I woke did my exercise and ate a healthy breakfast....I packed my healthy lunch..and have a healthy dinner planned, along with my snacks for the day.....I still feel like I should or could do more......
then thought if your doing your best, how can you do more, time for me to lighten up on myself again....I tend to want to be perfect, want everything around me to be perfect...I 'm not sure why I am this way but...if I am honest with myself , I am looking for my perfect life....and have to deal with disappointment I know I will feel when I can't have a perfect day ....
how dare I complain when people have real problems and not ones the do to them selves....
So I am going to go to work, help those who need my help and thank God for all my blessings.. thank God for my spark friends and my family..

ONLY 23 more days till vacation....yahooooo

so trying to do my best and be happy with that

    Perfection is good for some things and not so good for others. I suppose the key is learning when to use it and when to compromise, and most of us don't get there. Like you said, all we can do most of the time is do our best.

    Glad you finally got some rain, too! We were clobbered yesterday and I hope it doesn't make the E.coli counts at the swim beaches rise -- the weather hasn't been very cooperative this year and I need the open-water swim practice!

    I think the search for perfection is part of what drives us? The search itself can be interesting and it beats just "sitting" and wondering what to do next. If we're constantly on our own case urging ourselves forward, that gets to be a task/motivation all of its own and we don't have to wonder how to just "be".

    I know this getting older stuff is really throwing me for a loop, it's not like I can change my life plan by changing jobs or going back to school, etc., been there, done all that and now have to figure out what to do without all those reference points.

    Good for you! I'm trying to do the same, I have not gotten as much excersize as I usually do. But I'm tired. So I have to let my body speak to me and I have to listen. I won't be perfect today, probably not tomorrow either (or the day after that, or the day after that), but for today, I did my best.
    And so did you!

    I don't think you can ever make things perfect, but doing your best is good Kitt.
