The world is full of over achievers who are doing so much, earning so much, appreciated so much and seemingly loved so much, as well.
Once in a while, I look at myself and wonder, have I done enough? Should I have written a book 10 years ago? Should I have picked up a high profile job 5 years ago? Should I have nominated myself for Best Wife Award, or something like that (whatever Men call it)?
Should I have?
On such days, I simply sit in the sun (oh yes! It’s nice on sunny days in Pune) look at the trees, hear the birds chirping, look at my beautiful family, count my blessings, breathe deeply, meditate and eventually arrive at the conclusion that I am doing enough!
I don’t need to achieve what someone else has achieved. I don’t need to make someone else’s success define the value I hold of myself in my own life. I don’t need awards, certificates, or even monetary compensation to measure my true worth.
My definition of success is for me to define, for me to measure against no one else but me myself! So I decide I am the best version of me today. Tomorrow is a new day and I am sure it will challenge my version of 22nd August2023 to do a little better than yesterday.
Will you (the reader) ever get to know, if I did better than yesterday? Hell no! Why would I give a certificate of appreciation to myself; click a selfie of me giving it to me and then put it on my FB profile! No way!
If you know me, you already know, I am doing enough and I will keep doing better each day. (ok! Ok! To be fair, on most days!
