D - Doing the Best I can

Sometimes (more often than not actually) I find myself buried under a to-do list that has reached a length that makes me cry when I look at it.
Sometimes I miss appointments, birthdays, parties, meetings, anniversaries, new births of friends' babies, etc, etc, etc
Sometimes I don't have time to write a chapter, a page, or even a paragraph despite my best effort to get my book done
Sometimes I forget when things are due or when I've promised to do something for someone
Sometimes I don't follow up on the many, many emails/messages I get in my 4 email accounts, 3 FB accounts, 2 FB pages, 2 Twitters, 1 LinkedIn, and 2 Instagram accounts.


But

Sometimes I have to sit back and remember that I'm doing the best I can!



Seriously, sometimes we need to look over our to-do list, appointments, meetings, messages, emails, notifications, parties, etc, and just realize that there is not time in life for us to do everything. And sometimes we need to realize that be have to pick and choose which ones are most important or most urgent, and get them done. Then we can say "I did something today, and I feel accomplished"

So instead of looking at everything you have to do or need to do or should do or want to do until you get to the point that you go crazy trying to keep up, today, Just choose a couple of thing and remind yourself that even those few things are a step forward - an accomplishment.

Because today, I am Doing the Best I can! And that's worth something!
