day 11 – don’t sweat

Nov 2nd, 2012 jessica Blog

It doesn’t have to be done all at once.  It will never all be finished.  There will be more.  And that is a wonderful thing.  It means I am still alive.  The end will be the end, and until then the book is still being written.  And I am the author.

I was the kid that read the last chapter of the book first.  Set the expectation of having it all figured out ahead of time.  I don’t have it figured out.  I won’t have it figured out. And that is a wonderful thing.  It means I am still learning.

I have a tendency to set up all or nothing situations.  If I can’t do everything I can’t do anything.  I can’t do everything.  But I can do anything.  And that is a wonderful thing.  It means my life is full of possibility.

It is easier to notice what isn’t working than what is.  More is working than what isn’t.  And that is a wonderful thing.  It means I have a lot to be grateful for.

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

That is all for now.
