Make it good

You don’t have to get it perfect today. Give yourself permission to be satisfied with your best.

You don’t have to get to everything on your list before lunchtime. Allow yourself to do what you’re able to do, as you can do it.

You don’t have to be right about everything. Admit when you’ve been wrong and correct your mistakes.

You don’t have to be all things to all people. Know who you are, know what makes sense for you, and stick with that.

You don’t have to impress and amaze the world with everything you do. Give yourself the freedom to be the authentic person you are, skilled, flawed, hopeful, and realistic.

Live life not as some idealized fantasy but as the genuine experience of whatever comes your way. Embrace each moment for what it is and you’ll find you have everything you need to make it good.

— Ralph Marston
