It’s been my experience, I can be an “all or nothing” kind of person. I’ll start a well-intended project with high expectations and get to a point where there’s a bump in the road. At that point things can get a bit sideways and then I get frustrated to the point to where I drop it all together and walk away.
The practical me knows that’s not the best way to handle the situation, but nevertheless I tend to react that way.
Maybe the more beneficial way for me to respond is to view my progress as enough. If I was able to move forward in any capacity today that was enough. If I made really good progress, that’s enough. If I showed up and gave an honest effort, that’s enough.
Maybe sometimes, enough is enough. Especially when viewing this journey called life as a marathon and not a sprint. I need to find as much encouragement as I can to keep myself energized and excited to meet each new day.
Maybe giving enough is enough.
