Sometimes I get this question asked, “What did you do today?” Whenever asked this I seem to be at a loss for words. I tend to struggle with feeling like my day is not sufficient enough to other’s views. What I do each day is not grand but it is meaningful. But because of my insecurities and the fear of the judgment of others, I feel like my day to day life is not enough or worthy of sharing.
Then on other days, my schedule gets busy and I do not get all of my cards finished. I wonder where the day went and feel guilty for not getting what I needed to accomplish that day.
I had a small breakdown recently, feeling insufficient, but then realized I needed to pull myself out of my rut and really acknowledge where my time went. So I made a list. A list of things I did that day. And then I realized I did have a purposeful, meaningful, and productive day, whether or not I checked everything off my list.
And I let go. Let go of my agenda and embraced the day before me. I can get to my cards tomorrow.
