I have it written up on my whiteboard at work beside my desk and I see it every day, as a question and a reminder. It’s the phrase “Are you being your MOST AMAZING self today?”
I don’t feel like my most amazing self today.
I didn’t feel like my most amazing self yesterday either. Yesterday I stayed in bed all day. Literally, all day, eating Goldfish crackers out of the container while I stared at my computer screen, diving into my own made up works of fiction.
Today work is monotonous. I have a bit of a headache, and the future is big and wide and sneaking up, giving me the anxious shakes if I think too long and hard about it.
I don’t feel like my most amazing self often. But maybe today, I’m the most amazing that I can be. And tomorrow, I’ll be as amazing as I can be then.
Life can be rough sometimes. But as long as we continue to be the most amazing we can be at that very moment…well, I think that’s amazing in itself.
Let’s work today to be our most amazing self. And tomorrow, to be just a bit more amazing-er.
