210 // Struggling to Recover

Today I am grateful for:

  1. The practice of letting go of what isn’t mine to hold on to. It isn’t my job to meet every expectation or preserve everyone’s delicate idea of perfection. Some things just aren’t my fault, my problem, or my job.
  2. Street tacos. My coworker treated us to lunch today from a new Mexican restaurant. I got to have an old favorite, tacos al pastor, and enjoy a taste of the world I remember from before coronavirus and quarantine.
  3. My mind. I’m smarter than I give myself credit for and have more potential than I know. Every time I doubt myself I come out of the challenge perplexed as to why I ever did. It’s time I start building up some confidence. I’ve earned it.
