Go easy on yourself and others today. Everyone deserves a break, including you.

It’s easy to keep the constant stream of to-do’s firing on high, but some days it’s helpful to look at what you have already done. It’s easy to look at how far you have to go or to wish someone close to you would do more, but it’s important to look at how far you’ve come.

Progress in any form takes sustained time and effort. If you know you’re doing your best it’s okay to take a rest from time to time. If you have been slacking off, don’t beat yourself up about it, just get back at it with renewed commitment.
