It’s always been my motto and something I tell myself at least once a week. Just keep going. When my day is not going well, I’m in a crap mood, I’m tired, I’m sick, I’m overwhelmed, overworked, my plate is way too full, my muscles are too sore. I remind myself to keep going.
Sometimes there’s nothing else you can do. Take your day one tiny piece at a time. Work through the things that are most important. Let slide what can wait for another day. Give yourself a break, be gentle with yourself and everyone you come into contact with. Treat yourself just a little – 30 minutes in the bath, a scoop of ice cream, a cheesy TV show, one fancy drink at the bar, a walk in the park, a new book.
Workout, stay in, ignore my emails for a night.
If everything seems to be falling apart it’s not helpful to rush through it. Move slow, one thing at a time, just keep going.
(I’m not currently having a rough time, but this post has been in my drafts for a bit and I’m sure there’s someone who needs to read this right now)
