Last night I was reminded once again that life is full of potholes. One moment you are going along smoothly, enjoying the scenery, thinking you just might have finally figured this life thing out (yeah, right!)….and then….BAM….down you go. Moments of doubt consume you, and you start re-thinking every aspect of your life. Anyone with me on this?
I tossed and turned all night long. This morning I am still feeling the effects of it. This morning my head is full of doubt. This morning I am mad at myself. This morning my heart hurts for someone I love more than my own life. This morning I will need to remember the above words: “Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the best you can”.
After all, that is all we can do. The best we can. We are flawed humans. We are imperfect, and no matter how much we try to do the best we can, sometimes we will fail. A lot of times we will fail. Sometimes we will hurt others in the process unknowingly. BUT, we are all just doing the best we can.
So, if you woke up this morning after tossing and turning, and your heart is heavy….know I am right there with you my friend. Take a deep breath. Don’t beat yourself up. This is just life reminding you and I both (once again!!), to slow down and gain some perspective.
I am thinking of you. Thanks for thinking of me too.
