Promise of a new Day

We only do well the things we like doing. —Colette—

When you were a child, did you feel you had to do everything you were told to do? If you didn’t preform all tasks well, did you feel something was wrong with you?
When we were young, many of us were never told we were doing as well as we could. Or if we were told, we didn’t know how to hear it. It has taken some of us years to

learn that to do something well often means to do it as well as we can. And somewhere inside us, those children still groan over those things over tasks they can’t do easily.
It helps to remember that we are not alone. Something we find difficult to do may have all sort of repercussions for us and for others. We can always ask for help. Other people are pleased when we ask them to share their skills. When we know how to console the child within, we need never feel inadequate.
I’m working toward the day when I can truthfully say, “I like everything I do because I do everything as well as I can.”
