Note: This article is a bit of a departure from my usual topics but, in my opinion, is just as important. This little detour is meant to be a pause in a time when busyness is at an all-time high. I hope you can take a moment to read this little reminder, as each of us can use it every once in a while.
How often do you think about how you could be better? How you should get more done, stretch more of your money, make a way out of no way? You say, “If I just had more time, things would be different; I’d be able to be my best.” You would be more organized, cook more, workout, spend time with friends, read that book, right? The shoulda, coulda, woulda’s can fill the rest of your days if you let them. There’s really only one thing you need to know to be the best you: At this very moment, you’re OK.
Being OK doesn’t mean you’re not achieving, growing, or that you’re being mediocre. It simply means that in this moment, in the space and skin you’re in, everything is alright. You made it. You’ve done your best up until now and as you move forward you can take pleasure of knowing you’ll be OK then as well. See, staying in the space of “OK-ness” actually empowers you. It allows you to let go of the past and the future, to recognize that what’s happening to, with, and through you is preparing you for the greatness to come. Powerful, isn’t it?
I believe, at our core, we are each doing our best with each moment we have. And as each new moment comes, we have the ability to choose to take on the challenge of learning, growing and implementing changes we discover. But right now, as a I type this article, I know in my heart that I am OK. I wish the same for you. OK? OK.
