The other day I was catching up with a friend and he told me he was so lazy the last few weeks.
Spoiler alert: he wasn’t. He is working a full time job (from home) studying an additional course, taking music lessons and taking time for exercise every day.
But it made me think… How often do we criticise ourselves for everything we wish we could do, without realising how much we are already doing?
Despite the fact that the world has been brought to a grinding halt by this pandemic, we are still driven to do more, be more. While in fact we are already surviving through the biggest global event of our lifetime.
And in the middle of all of it, we are continuing with work, life, self improvement and hobbies. We should take a moment to give ourselves credit for what we are doing, and focus on the good stuff for a change, in stead of the stuff we want to change.
Be kind. Stay safe
