I am doing the best that I can

I often feel that I am just not living up to what I should be living up to. I feel like I “should” be doing this, or I “should” be doing that. Maybe the issue is that I really don’t know what it is that I am supposed to be living up to. Or maybe the real issue is that I “should” just delete “should” from my vocabulary!

Life is confusing and difficult enough without trying to reach some invisible bar that I will never feel that I have attained because I can’t even see it! I am setting my own bar from now on – other people do not get to decide my standards or my actions. My new motto is this: I am doing the best that I can, and it will have to be enough, because it is all I can do.

I am setting my own expectations and standards – starting now.
