Personal Best

Day 163


I always do my best and my best is always good enough.


Giving our best effort to everything we do shows respect and appreciation for the opportunities we are given.  It can also stretch us to give a bit more than we want to when we’re not wholly enthusiastic about what we’re doing.  But doing and giving our best effort does not mean perfection.  It means we do the best we can with what we have to give from and with.  Sometimes our best is tragically awful and guess what?  It’s good enough because it was the best we could do.  There can be any number of reasons why our best seems to fall short.  Maybe we’re lacking tools, experience, support, or confidence.   Maybe we’re not feeling well, or having other issues weighing heavy,  but if we’re giving it our best, we can feel good about our effort.  It doesn’t matter if your best is not good enough for someone else, just so-so, or a shining example of incorrectness, as long as you know you gave it your best on that day, at that time, and under those circumstances.  And in that is found peace of mind.
