When I woke up this morning, I was aggravated with myself. Again. Never a fun way to start one’s day. But I’ve been doing it to myself for the last couple of weeks.
Why was I so aggravated? I have a time that I want to wake up each morning to do some writing before the rest of the day invades my time. But my family’s schedule has changed this summer, so my day ends later than it normally does and I can’t change that. So I end up in bed later and sleeping later. Not the way I normally like it.
But then I came across this quote and it made me pause. What was wrong with me? Why am I so hard on myself? I’m still productive, just not when I think I “should” be. And isn’t the point to be productive? This new schedule isn’t permanent anyway, just for a little while.
I think sometimes we can be our own worse enemies and it can stifle the very thing we are looking to achieve. I need to remind myself to be thankful I’m able to take any time to be productive on something I love. Because I find when I’m not thankful, I end up stressed and being counterproductive.
You are enough! Be thankful, be happy, be blessed.
Make it a great day!
