Dogged Persistence. Keep Showing Up.
You know those bad hair days? The days when your kick-ass drive fails you and your energy drags? You get to bed late, have a fight with your kid, miss a deadline; you come home to find that your 8 year old Great Dane, for the first time EVER left liquid poop all over one part of your living room rug … Arrgh!
In short, you have a week where NOTHING works?
If, in spite of all of that, if you still kept showing up Every Single Day of that no-good-terrible-awful week … Guess what?
You won. You won because you kept doing the work, putting yourself out there – whatever your “out there” is. You found a way to keep doing all of the things that you were expected to do.
Or, you decided to pick your battles and you re-organized your to-do list.
And, if you’re a dog-lover sharing your life with at least one canine companion, you pull yourself out of that bad hair day faster because you know and celebrate your dog’s best gift: the constant reminder to live in the present moment and not to EVER hold a grudge.
Deadlines are negotiable, rugs can be cleaned and we can always say, “I’m sorry.” [gplus count=”true” size=”Medium” ]
