Moving Forward

There are some days where things just do not go as planned. Then there are those days that seem to last for weeks. Sometimes I am afraid that I have fallen so far behind that I will never catch up. It seems an insurmountable task to catch up everything that has been left to the wayside while life came crashing through.

I am finally starting to actually learn to just accept things for how they are. How does this help? Well, if I can accept that I really am that far behind, then I can move on to starting again. Did you catch that? Most of the time we run around trying to catch up and feel overwhelmed and stressed. Things don't seem to move fast enough. It seems that something else is always waiting to crumble. We stress over things not being good enough, not being fast enough...

Next time, try forgiving yourself. You did the best that you knew how to do at that time. Let it go. Take a deep breath.

Then you can pick up the pieces and start moving forward again. 
And that is good enough.
