Start Where You Are

There are a couple of times a year where I feel like hitting the reset button. The start of a new calendar year and the beginning of the school year. So here we are in September 2016. This time I am approaching my reset a bit differently with an approach that I know is achievable for me, which is to always do my best. It's not that I didn't do that before. I just never gave myself the permission to fail, at least not without feeling bad if I did, or never even attempting to finish something for fear of failure. From now on, whatever it is, whatever the outcome, if I've done my best, I've done enough. I am enough. Failure happens when you don't try. And if you don't get the outcome you desire, pick yourself up and begin again. No need to wait for a new year, new month, or new day. Just start where you are.
