I had finished breakfast, did all the laundry, vacuumed the house, organized clothes, changed my sons bed sheets, changed all the pillow covers, cleaned the restroom counters, organized my cosmetics and finally I was in the shower to both clean it and shower immediately after cleaning it (btw does anyone else do this?). As I scrubbed I thought of how I still needed to work out and prepare dinner and try to squeeze in a nap before work.
There wouldn’t be time for all three or I would have to rush thru all three. I hate rushing it stresses me out. Then all of a sudden I was gentle with myself and realized I had already worked out all morning. I was both relieved and happy. I also felt much more accomplishment about my cleaning sesh. Now all there was to do was dinner and a nice nap….leisurely.
Of-course I’m not saying I’ve quit formally exercising, all I am saying is that some days good enough is good enough. Some days doing my chores is my workout and it relieves me of an added perceived failure or unnecessary stress. As the famous Enlightenment Writer Voltaire coined “The perfect is the enemy of the good.” I for sure don’t want any enemies. I especially don’t want to be my own enemy, I want to be one of my bestest friends evah!
All the love,
