Via @catalinamunoz7’s newsletter:
7/7. Thought of the week 💭
From @simsilverstein’s newsletter:
“I made a promise to you, and me, that I’d write a newsletter and essay each week. I’m 100% proud of my newsletter commitment. And, I release my essay commitment—with love. See how nicely I let myself off the hook? You can do that, too. Let something go.” - @simsilverstein
This resonated with me. I was really anxious in November last year because of a commitment (to myself) to publish an essay each week. I’m much calmer now that I’ve let this go. Be kind to yourself.
Hope 2022 is off to a great start.
Back to work next week for most of us. Good luck out there. Remember this is a marathon, not a race ✌️
