Affirmation: "Do the best you can"

Whats up wreckless people?!

A reader reached out to me about a follow-up blog post for the 30 day challenge. Ummm yeah see what had happened was… I didn’t plan on doing one simply because I need to do a 30 day challenge to complete my last 30 day challenge. lol I mean…. I conquered a few tasks but for other tasks I definitely fell off the radar especially about things like *coughs* working out. Eventually I accepted my long walks and errand runs for a form of working out but to be honest my clean eating goals were enough to adjust to.

Which brings me to the title of this blog, do the best you can.

I know this sounds easy but for someone, like myself, who is such a perfectionist, really hard on myself and others and who wants things to be a certain way, repeating this to myself is a must. Life will teach you some hard lessons in unexpected ways. Like I’m really not the type of person to give people the benefit of the doubt but when I tell you my heart is filling up with so much compassion these days, its ridiculous!

So this week I dropped my baby for the first time. I’m still trying to figure out how it happened but all I know is he went head first onto my bed. First of all luckily it was my bed and secondly it didn’t even break his sleep, so I knew he was okay! Jesus take the wheel! It took a minute for me to get over this but then just last night during his bath time, he spits up and my first instinct was to wash it off with water…. umm yeah the only problem with this was that the water entered his mouth(don’t even ask)! I swear there was a clear expression on my baby’s face as he was coughing/chocking and it said, “WHAT THE FU**?! You trying to kill me or nah?!” I feel like prior to writing this I should’ve prefaced it by saying, “No children were hurt or harm during these scenes of events”.

Anyway what I am realizing is this is only the beginning. Like Im only on month TWO! I have thousands of months to go! So I definitely have to take my chill pill, realize I can’t beat myself up about things and constantly tell myself, “Do the best you can.”

This doesn’t mean I will be careless and irresponsible but this does mean that I won’t be super hard on myself and unforgiving for mistakes and hiccups. At the end of the day my baby is still breathing so I am in the clear of some serious criminal charges:-) That is all that matters and the fact that he’s still alive, one come with the other:-P

Stay wreckless,

Aminah
