Football season is now officially over and I didn't actually get a lot of good images of these little ones that I absolutely adore. Sports photography is defenatly not my forte. I would love it to be, but without a zoom lens it's hard. Am I completely wrong? All that nonsense aside, I wanted to write about something completely unrelated to football, but that's what I most recently had on my camera from Saturday.
I wanted to talk about productivity, which is probably so bizarre. Either way, I felt proud of today because I got what some may think is nothing, but to me was a lot done. Even my previous self would laugh at how little it actually was, but today's me was so glad. And that's what I think is amazing about life and production and the human mind. I don't want to rant on you, but often times I compare how much I accomplish to people who are doing 7 times more than I am and I get all bummed out. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has done this before. I just want you to know that 1.) stop comparing. Those that are doing more or less than you could be wishing they were where you're at. The grass always seems to be greener, eh? 2.) You're doing okay. If you only cleaned your room, bathroom, car and went to the gym today, good on you. If you got out bed today, good on you. If you called a friend, went to 8 hours of school, made the neighbors dinner, worked 7 hours, went to the gym, and did a load of laundry, good on you. I have this thing that I do when I'm teaching swim lessons that I say to the littles when they leave the wall and move forward. "Oh my goodness! Look how far you made it. Do you see that?! I am so proud of you." And I say that no matter how far they got. Because the important part is that they moved. And I think that can be applied here. Sometimes you only make it from the bed to the couch, and that's okay. Just try to make it a little farther the next day.
Whatever you got done today, cut yourself some slack and be proud of what you did. It's okay if you didn't save the world today. I'm sure you started saving someone's. This video is kind of long, but if you have 9 minutes to spare I totally encourage you to watch it. Such a game changer in my book.
