It's rainy here today and I woke up with a headache but I'm trying to not let it get me down.
For the first time in a long time I was able to get up really early before my kids and have a cup of coffee. I've been trying to do that since the beginning of the school year! Now that it's the last week of school - go figure!
And then even though I didn't feel like it I worked out and ate a really healthy breakfast and was able to have a fairly productive morning with my son.
As I ate my lunch earlier I thought "Wow, why can't every day be like this?"
And then of course I laughed. I can certainly strive for each day to be more on purpose and meaningful. But when you have a lot going on, two kids and just life in general it's a bit much to expect perfect days all the time. But today made me grateful I was able to do what I did.
So to remind myself I came across this:
Strive for progress, not perfection.
This was so fitting to see and take in. Right now I feel it applies to so much for me with health, life, exercise, parenting, organizing - anything!
As long as there's a progression in the right direction I consider it a win.
I will attempt to get up early again tomorrow but just in case I don't, I will take this morning as progress and put perfection aside for now :)
