Happy Monday! I hope you have a wonderful day as you jump into the start of a new week! Today’s Monday Mantra is, I am doing the best I can. That is all that I can expect of myself.
We place a lot of pressure on ourselves to do more and to be more, holding high expectations in all modes of our life to be the very best- whether as a parent, employee, business owner, sibling, or friend. And while it is all well and good to strive to be the best version of yourself, your expectations can sometimes be set too high and in some cases amount to impossible standards. As human beings we are not perfect, and you shouldn’t expect yourself to be. In those moments that you feel you have fallen short, compassionately remind yourself you are doing the very best that you can. You won’t be perfect, but that’s ok! You are doing your best and that is all you can ever expect of yourself. And I promise, you are doing much better than you think!
