You Don’t Have to Be the Best to… (and another one of my favorite sculptures)

Sculpture by Creative Heroine Paige Bradley

You don’t have to be the best mother to be the best mother to your child.You don’t have to be the best at relationships to be the best date with solution and understanding the partner you’ve chosen, and whose chosen you, has ever had.

You don’t have to be the best at helping others live better lives to actually be doing that ~ helping others live better lives ~ who, as a result, feel their best or feel the best they’ve felt in weeks/months/years.

You don’t have to be the best in championing for worthy causes to be the best you making a you-sized dent in your chosen part of a movement, in your part of the world.

You don’t have to be the best, but you might have to be ~

Present.

Committed.

Attentive.

A better listener than a talker, yet also always inching towards being a more loving, more responsible, more honest and more courageous communicator than the day before; a connector of those words to actions.

Resolve to being.

That may just be it.

Resolve to being.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,

p.s. If you need to hear it another way — You don’t have to be the best to be so GOOD.
