Doing everything is not "doing everything"
We live in a society that favors “doing it all." Let's be real here, you don't have to do every single thing that comes your way in order to be happy or to feel accepted. We weren't created to have the never-ending stamina and energy to be go go 24-7. We get tired!! As humans we need time to rest and recharge. So that means we are going to have to say no to certain things. A no to something can be a yes to something bigger and better! Truly, less is more.
“In my mind “doing everything” is you doing everything you need in order to feel your best and brightest. That means you are going to have to say no to certain things in order to say yes to bigger and better things."
By me, Rachel!
Your goal should not be to do everything that comes you way but to live life to it's fullest! This means being mindful and aware of what you should and shouldn't do. It is a journey we will be on for the rest of our lives, learning what we need and what we don't need. Leaning what makes you feel the best and what doesn't. Along the journey you will do things you wish you didn't do and that's ok! You learn and grow from it!
So enjoy today! Be kind to yourself if you don't accomplish everything on your to-do list. Shift your mindset from being self-critical to self-accepting and choose to move forward with love in every way. That is the best we can do!
