Wednesday Wanderings | Doing Our Best

SFChristmasGiftImageHello everyone! I hope your week is going great! At my house, we are busy preparing for the holidays. I imagine that you are as well. Goodness, there is so much to do! In addition to getting our last minute Christmas shopping done, I have to get our Christmas cards mailed out as well. Despite how busy we are, I’m particularly excited about the fact that this Christmas, all of our children will be home. We won’t have the privilege of having all of our grandchildren with us or our future son-in-law so that will tug at our hearts, but we are counting our blessings for sure.

In regard to counting our blessings, for this weeks Wednesday Wanderings post, I am going to share a quote from author Don Miguel Ruiz. I find his teachings to be very powerful, and I count his teachings as a blessing. His teachings are so powerful to me that I actually have his book, The Four Agreements, on my nightstand. The quote that I find meaningful today is noted below:

“Under any circumstance, always do your best, no more and no less. But keep in mind that your best is never going to be the same from one moment to the next. Everything is alive and changing all the time, so your best will sometimes be high quality, and other times it will not be as good.” Don Miguel Ruiz

What thought(s) came to your mind when you read this? The thought that came to my mind is that I know on some days I have the energy and zest to give whatever it is I’m doing my best, and yet on other days, I just don’t seem to be able to make things happen. On the days when I feel like I am not accomplishing much, I feel somewhat emotionally down. There’s nothing to celebrate. There is definitely an ebb and flow to each day. A great example of the daily ebb and flow happens to be this particular blog post! For some reason, I’m having a difficult time writing my thoughts down yet a week ago I published a book. How does this happen? Maybe this is the balance of life? Would love to hear your thoughts!

Growing stronger…

    Lovely and honest, that’s all you can be. My children & families are in a war with each other. They would like to say it is one sister’s fault when in actuality no one listens,so they have shut down. How are the senior citizen condo’s in Fla.?

      Hi Vicki,

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts! It’s always wonderful to see you here! Your presence means a lot to me! I’m so sorry to hear that family life is not fairing so well. This can’t be easy, especially during the holiday season. It’s interesting that you mention communication as the culprit. In this particular blog post, I started writing about “active listening” and the importance of attentiveness during communication with others, and then I spun the blog in a different direction. I’m sending hugs and positive thoughts your way! Oh! And those senior citizen condo’s?! From what I hear, they are great! 🙂
