I have a confession.
I am way to hard on myself.
Without going into too much detail, last night I did some work and saw some results of my secret project.
I should be thrilled with these results but I’m not. If I told you details you too would say “Shannon, that’s great!” But the goal I set in my head was just missed.
High standard and goals are a great thing. Times are different now and I need to remind myself that I am a Mom, Wife and an Employee. Under the circumstances I think it’s acceptable to lower my expectations a little bit.
That is easy to say but so hard to convince myself such behaviour is acceptable.
