Our intent today is inspired by the many times we’ve ended the day feeling dissatisfied, unproductive and not enough. What do you do when you feel like you don’t measure up? Our intent is to instead accept what we CAN do. Maybe it was one huge task, a bunch of small tasks or that you just got out of bed today. Accept the progress you’ve made. Celebrate the ways you showed up today and the strength you gained since the day before. Today is the building block for tomorrow!
Are you struggling with where you are in this moment?
Here are some resources to help:
- This encouragement from Walt Whitman.
“Whoever is not in his coffin and the dark grave, let him know he has enough.” ― Walt Whitman
When you start to feel overwhelmed, remember that right now you are alive and breathing. Right now you have a now and sometimes that has to be enough. It means there is potential for a different tomorrow. Breathe and breathe again.
- This meditation on self-acceptance and love from Deepak Chopra.
“I love myself just as I am.” This means whether or not you’re the top earner, the top of your field, the best parent. Right now, give yourself the freedom to accept what you can do today. Whether it is more or less than you thought, decide you are on your own team no matter what.
- This Daily Om course on Embracing Intelligent Self Care.
Created by Karen Horneffer-Ginter, Ph.D., this course is designed to bring wisdom into your everyday, life, honor your rhythms and help you step off the wheel of activity.
