When you’ve done all that you can do.

When you’ve done all that you can do, and you still feel like you have so much further to go. When you feel like all that you have to give still isn’t nearly enough. When it seems that you will not be able to keep up everything that needs to be kept up for one minute longer. Stop and breathe. Look, really look at what you are expecting of yourself. You cannot always do it all. You cannot hold everything together perfectly and you cannot be perfectly composed every single day. It’s unrealistic. It’s ok to have “off” days. Bad days will pass just like they always do. There will be a brand new sparking day waiting for you tomorrow. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself.
Today it’s time for self-compassion.

  1. Thanks for the support! I guess you can say I’m in that “ZONE” right now! Only, it’s not me putting too many expectations on myself, it’s other’s (situations that came up I must deal with) that are putting me in that “ZONE”, with a time-frame to meet to make things even more complicated! Hmmmmmmm ….. God did say there will be “Trials & Tribulations”….. I guess my number came up ….AGAIN! I always thank Him for those “Trials & Tribulations” too, because I know there is a lesson in there somewhere He wants me to learn! It’s my job to figure that out, and LEARN from it! Blessings!

  2. I’m 70 years old & have a beautiful 23 year old granddaughter who has a 9 mo. old daughter & a wonderful hard working husband. She works full time, is taking classes to further her education (& also a pay raise that is needed) & works in the nursery at church for both services. We have an open/close relationship that I thank God for. She called last week – she is sick – possibly a stomach ulcer. I know what she’s going though – I did the same thing & am still paying for it. My advise to her was what I want to share with all – you can’t continue to be of any service to anyone if you’re flat on your back & in the hospital. We all have choices to make. Just be sure your priorities are in order. No one can make you do anything. We make the choice. God bless & take care. Your family needs YOU. ❤️
