So today’s blog post is a little different. With the last blog post being 292/365 days, so far, I had not missed a day. This is Day 293 and I did not take my photo of the day.
I was very sick, rundown and at home but I urgently felt a need to get outside and take my photo. My mum told me not to do it and I wrestled over her suggestion for hours but finally gave in after learning a very important lesson:
You don’t have to expect a certain or consistent level of performance from yourself every day of the year.
Day 293 is left without photos but left me with a great lesson and I am grateful for that. I wouldn’t have learned that if I had gone out and pushed through. I hope that this post can become a reminder for myself and anybody else to not be so demanding on yourself. To respect yourself when you need a break and to be kind to yourself. I know how hard that is, it’s hard for everyone.
Stay tuned for the next and last 72 days.
