SHE’s always right. Right?
Before I get into that contentious statement, let me ask you this:
Do you set yourself 10 things to do in a day, manage to complete 5 of them and then spend your evening beating yourself up for the 5 you didn’t manage to do?
Well here’s a thought…
Maybe 5 tasks were all that was humanly possible in one day anyway. Do you sometimes set yourself superhuman to-do lists?
Now, I know that you ARE a superhero and that you are fully capable of doing amazing things every day. The big ‘but’ is that if you’re a superhero every single day your mind, body, brain or soul is going to go pop at some point. For your own well-being you need to have smaller plans.
Dream big, plan small
I’m not talking about downgrading your biggest goals and dreams. Having big dreams, so big they even scare you a little, can be fabulous and we can talk about those another day. This is about your day to day behaviour and how to stop procrastinating (because you’re overwhelmed by your list) how to stop feeling useless (because you can’t complete an unrealistic list) and how you can feel more resourceful, satisfied and resilient by having kinder, more humane expectations of yourself.
SHE’s always right?
So, that brings me to the contentious title of this article. SHE is always right. And the point at which I have to confess I’ve mislead you a little.
What I’m actually suggesting is that
is a healthier, happier and more content way to live your life.
And surely, ‘SHE’ is the right way to go about life?
My blog software is currently telling me this article isn’t long enough yet. However, I think you’ve got the message and I’m keen to let you crack on with your realistic, humane and kind to-do list. Or put the kettle on and celebrate what you’re already achieved.
Whatever you do today there’s at least one thing you could do to improve it…
That’s to celebrate what you DO achieve rather than focusing on what you don’t get done. You are doing the best you can, give yourself some credit.
With much love from me and well done to you,
