I don’t know what the Sanskrit equivalent to Do Your Best is, but if I did, I’d chant it over and over again. These three words have become my daily mantra as I navigate the ebbs and flows of my current life transition.
Do Your Best.
How do you Do Your Best? What does that even mean?
For me it comes down to this. I try not to be so hard on myself when things don’t turn out perfectly. My best may look sloppy and lackadaisical to you, but it’s really the best I can do.
Being the ardent type A over-acheiever that I am, I’ll admit that sometimes my best really isn’t good enough even for me. Like many of you out there, I’m my own worst critic and my own best cheerleader rolled in to one. It’s confusing at times, but I’m doing my best to manage both sides of the coin.
