Stop Seeking Perfection and Be Excellent


I don’t know if you can tell or not but that smile was just a reflex today. I have had a crazy few days for some reason and haven’t slept much since Thursday. I even missed my workout yesterday. (I know, right.) I’m exhausted. I’ve been feeling like I can’t think straight and I just haven’t feel like myself.

But with all of my muscles and joints wanting to milk every possible minute of sleep before Jeremiah’s alarm went off, I literally jumped out of bed and got my workout in. I’m not going to lie, I struggled quite a bit through it but I just backed off when necessary and got it done. And you know what? I’m still exhausted but my day is going smoothly and the endorphins from my workout broke the fog over my brain. So glad I didn’t sleep in!

The truth is life happens and things don’t always go as planned. There will be days that you just don’t feel it. There will be times when your best in the moment is less than 100%. And that’s OK! If you genuinely have 50%, give your most excellent 50%. It’s not about perfection; it’s about really SHOWING UP and being intentional with what you have.
