Do What You Can

I’ve recently had to come to terms with a hard fact. Despite my best efforts I am not Wonder Woman.

Yep, that’s right I can’t do it all.

Lately, I’ve been battling a lot of obstacles. Which has required me to step back, step down, and take time to rest. I’ve said no more in the past 2 weeks than I have in quite possibly my whole life.

What I’m learning is that it’s ok to say no. It’s impossible for me to always be able to pick up the dropped pieces. What I can do though, is show up and get crap done. If at the end of that, I have the energy and strength to pick up a piece or two, I can.

I’ve found freedom in a previously packed schedule. I’ve been able to take naps, listen to podcasts, and just breathe. To my shock, the world still seems to be moving.

So, I’m choosing to do what only I can. I’m choosing to stop comparing what I accomplish with other’s accomplishments. The reality is, I’m the only me and that’s my super-power.
