It’s August 1st and I didn’t finish all of my July goals – shame on me. At first I was really upset with myself but then I got online and saw yesterday’s quote on Howdy Day!. The moments I chose to cuddle with Joe over working in solitude with my laptop or went out to explore something new instead of drafting personal projects at home, those are the moments that true living is all about. I’m good at knowing when I have the wiggle room to play and relax but I’m equally good at beating myself up if the wiggling exceeds its intended time limit. It’s a difficult balance when your home is your office but the good thing is that things do get done and the world doesn’t end. If the wiggle-guilt ever crawls back I’ll just remember that this quote gives me permission to live a little…or a lot.
