You do more than you think.
This is my #1 thing I struggle with on a regular basis: I don’t think I do much to contribute, but I’ll tell you why I do more than I think and why you are enough. I beat myself up over small trivial things, but when those pile up it can become daunting. Self-doubt is one of the things that I see a lot of people talk about and I can promise you that you aren’t alone.
One week, I had a sink full of dishes, a dryer full of unfolded clothes, and a bathroom that desperately needed to be cleaned. This may not seem like a lot at all, but it was too much for me to handle in the moment. I’m a person that will shamelessly admit that I complain more than I should. Sometimes it’s easier for me to vocalize things. I was talking about my wreck of an apartment to my friend and how things would be easier if I wasn’t so busy. She reminded me that at least I took the five minutes to transfer my clothes from the washer to the dryer. This may sound silly, but it opened my eyes to show that at least I did one thing right.
You can do hard things!
It can be so hard sometimes, but we are all doing something right. Whether that be you finally made it to pick up our kids on time, you laid out your clothes the night before and had a second to make breakfast. Maybe you even got to make dinner for the first time in weeks! Just know that you are KILLING it! You don’t have to have it all together, but you are doing so much already. You are enough and the things that you are doing make a difference in the world.
I would love to hear the little things that you are doing! Leave your stories in the comments below so we can all benefit from each other. Thank you, guys! I’m so blessed to have you here.
