Are you feeling under a lot of pressure?
Pressure from you family and kids, pressure from your work, deadlines and clients. Then there’s the pressure you put on yourself.
We live in a culture that often values what we achieve over who we are.
I just want to tell you this: you’re doing OK. Really.
It’s OK to just be you.
You don’t need to be running a company valued in the millions, to have advanced degrees, a beautiful house or spotless children.
You’re OK just as you are.
(Need more convincing? Take a look at this post Your children need YOU and its 425 comments)
I know that sometimes the pressure gets too much and you end up flipping your lid.
Like shouting at the kids a split second before you switch to being Mrs Ultra-Professional when a client phones up. Or ending up in floods of tears because some old fool criticises your parking at the supermarket.
Yeah, it’s not big or clever. But it’s OK. It happens to us all.
So just for today, give yourself a break. Cut yourself some slack.
It really will be OK.
