This One’s For Me: Ruth’s SOLS

It’s been one of those days where I’ve spent too much time wishing I were something else. Wishing I were older, with the luxury of experience. Wishing I could walk away without caring so much. Wanting to be less sensitive. More patient. I think we all battle days like these. The days when we feel we aren’t good enough. That our work doesn’t matter. We can’t win.

And then I remember, I don’t have to be more of something or less of that. I just have to be the best version of myself. I have to take a deep breath and pull it together. Because the world doesn’t need more of something or less of that. The world needs more people being themselves. The world needs more people happy with the person they were made to be.

So right now, in this slice of the day, I’m accepting that I’m a little over-sensitive sometimes; I get worked up about things I should let go; I miss the mark some days and lose focus on what truly matters, letting ridiculous things annoy me. But it’s okay, because I’m lots of other things too. And right now, I’m going to focus on being the best me I can be, because this is good enough.
