Some days there was so much to do she wished she could clone herself. Then she realized she was just one woman, doing the best she could. And, jeepers, that would have to be good enough. – Queenisms™
We’ve all felt this way. If only there were more of us, we could get it all done. But there aren’t more of us. And so, we have to decide to accept that what we can do just has to be good enough. That phrase, “Good Enough” has always felt like “not good enough” to us. It’s been used to indicate that someone (usually us speaking to ourselves) just couldn’t cut it and if we’d only worked harder we would have been not just good enough but superior. We’d like to propose that this deep fear that we’re not good enough may just be the root of the majority of our feeling of unease in the world. What if we all just decided, today, that we are good enough and whatever we’re able to accomplish in a day is just right? What would it feel like to go to bed satisfied and wake up refreshed and interested in the day rather than filled with shame about everything we didn’t accomplish? We don’t know. But we’d sure like to try. So we’re committing to you to make that goal a priority this week. How about you?
