Ever since I lost my mom and grandmother so suddenly last year I’ve lost my way. Some days I’d feel anchored, alive, and full of purpose…..Other days I felt lost, adrift, no sense of urgency. I’ve fought my demons and have had my family and friends support. I can finally say that today I’m no longer taking anti-depressents OR anxiety medicine. I’m still medicated for bi-polar and always will be, but I’m happy again.
I was trying to give 100% to everything and was falling short everywhere. I wasn’t present fully with my family, my word suffered, as did friendships. So over the summer I’ve given myself 100% daily. That doesn’t mean I’m all over the place trying to make everyone happy. I’m more focused. If I work then I work all day. If I’m with the kids then they get my full attention. Brian gets a full day of my love and affection. I’m getting more “life” done. So I challenge you. Strive for Progress and NOT Perfection. Do a little better everyday and you will be happier with your life in the long run.
