I Want It All

- POSTED ON: Feb 02, 2012


Many of us struggle throughout our lives
because we want to be the best,
all the time.

The best wife,
the best mother,
the best daughter,
the best friend,
the best employee,
the best boss.

But we can't please everyone all the time,
and we can't be best at everything all the time.

Due to financial or emotional needs, sometimes our focus has to be our jobs
Other things will suffer: friends, family, and health efforts.
Other times, we will have a different focus.

I'm going to do the best I can today.
Tomorrow, I'll also do my best.
It will never be perfect,
but when we learn to stop demanding perfection of ourselves,
we will stop ourselves from being our own worst enemy.
We are all human.
We're all trying our best.

My struggle with food also involves this issue.
My mindset frequently is:
"I want it all, and I want it right now." 

Regarding everything in life ... including food...

We can have it all, just not all at once.

I put pressure on myself to be "the best" ... as a child I was always told to strive to be the best ... and yes I do suffer disappointment regularly because I fail to meet the high standards I set for myself. This year I am working on changing my thought processes (recently stopped all psychotropic meds so it's a great time to "rewire" myself) and one mantra I need to focus on each day is that I only have to do my best not be the best :-) How to stop the "I want it all...NOW" thought process? I don't know but I'm hoping to find out :-) One-day-at-a-time :-) For today I just want to feel satisfied while staying w/in my calorie budget ... I'm experimenting w/phytochemicals which means new food combinations and recipes :-) Really interesting stuff ... I haven't done much research to determine the veracity of the claims so I could just be wasting my time but I like a lot of the foods that are recommended so I thought it would be a good diet for me to follow. Better chance of success if I'm eating things I actually like to eat, right? I hope that you're doing well and I hope you have a wonderful happy day today with success in all your undertakings <3
