You can’t be perfect.
It is impossible.
When we try to be the perfect teacher, spouse, parent, friend, coworker etc. we are setting ourselves up for failure.
Instead of trying to be perfect at all the things, why don’t we try and be present in the moment we are currently in.
When you are at school, be present for those kids who NEED an adult who truly cares about them in their corner.
When you are at home, be present for whoever is there. Spend time engaging with them.
When you are your with friends, forget the worries of your career and lean into those people you chose to be your family.
When you have some alone time, sit into that time, relax, breathe life into you, and fill yourself back up.
When we choose to be present in the moment we are showing the people around us (and ourselves) that they (and we) matter.
And sometimes that is all that matters.
