You can’t do everything. That’s true. But you can do something. What you do is not nearly as important as how you do it. Even the menial tasks can be opportunities to grow, even the difficult ones that you keep avoiding.
Can you show up fully today in what you do—no matter how important or trivial it may seem? Can you be present? Be open? Stop grasping at what comes next, the list in your head. Just do this one thing completely. Give yourself to the moment.
One of the attributes I’m trying to master is self-discipline (or rather self-control, same shit.) This means staying in on a Wednesday night while everyone is out having fun at Ladies Night, turning down drinks when I know the limit has been reached, sleeping by midnight, not being late for work in the mornings, spending within my means and learning how to say no.
It is currently 23:27pm, so that means sleepytime in half an hour.
Goodnight world. Remember that success comes to those who can forgo current satisfaction for future gain. Mother’s wise words.
