I didn’t even hesitate to make the second cup of coffee this morning, not that I’ve touched it yet. Let me rectify that.
It was sunny and now it’s gray and today I am tired, as evidenced by the coffee. So the only thing that’s going to get me from 11 to 12 is another cup of half-caff, which I do understand adds up to a whole-caff, but otherwise I will continue to zombie today. And that’s my little nugget of wisdom for you.
Do what you have to do.
It doesn’t have to be perfect, or best, or even the better option today. Take convenience over ideal. Take quick over quality. It’s OK.
It’s really OK.
We’ve been through a lot and many of you are still going through it, frozen in places that aren’t supposed to be frozen. And even if you’re not, even if it’s only your empathy in overload, give yourself a break and do what you have to do to get through today.
It’s OK if your progress is in inches rather than miles. Sentences rather than pages.
My one little caveat is if you are a person with dependency issues, do what you need to do to get through the desire to return to those issues to get through the day. This is not permission for self-harm.
This is permission for self-care.
And have a great Wednesday.
