I was having a conversation with my 93 year old grandmother the other day, and I asked her how she was doing. Her response was, “I’m still kicking….just not as high.” I giggled. And I told her as long as she is kicking, then everything is flowing. I then thought about how I’ve been feeling a little uninspired and mentally tired lately, but despite those feelings I still get up and do what I have to do. Sometimes I get a little hard on myself when I feel like I haven’t accomplished as much as I think I should. But then I’m reminded that as long as I’m pushing myself to do something, even if it’s small, then it’s all good.
The words my grandmother spoke resonated with me. It reminded me that there will be times I won’t be at my best – my kicks will be lower than usual, and that is totally okay. As long as I am still kicking, then I am still in the game – and that is half the battle.
Keep kicking my people… and I hope you’re liking this yellow boohoo bodycon dress while you’re at it.
