Expecting to be able to do it all is just not a true statement. Learn now to release that expectation; “I can do it all.” What you can expect from yourself is “to do your best”. That my friend is good enough. You are enough and you’ll get done what is most important to you, leave the rest. You got this!
High expectations of ourselves will only lead to misery. We are human beings not wired to be perfect but to be real. We are wired to be beautifully human, with flaws and all. Outside influences always expect us to do more, be more, say more, listen more, and work more. But you know deep inside, you can’t do it all. So figure out what’s most important to you and do that first and foremost. See how the rest will fall in line for you. Learn to say no more!
