I read a post today about things being 'Good Enough' and how that it's probably not. It was written by a teacher and the idea was to work harder for your grades. Set high standards and expect more of your students. I started thinking about all the other areas of my life that I use that saying. Did my daughter eat her veggies? I got in two bites... That's good enough. Is Aidan clean? Well, he's not completely covered in dirt... that's good enough! Did I make the beds and do the laundry.... ummm... sort-of??? That's good enough for today!
There are areas in life that 'good enough' is nowhere near enough. Did I kiss my children today? Did I tell my husband I love him and thank him for all he does? Did I call a friend today?
I think as long as you keep your priorities straight and do the things really important, then you're doing the best you can. I'm happy with that and I can sleep just fine at the end of the day.

I am good enough...
