Many of the blogs I read often post on bettering yourself. I subscribe to life hack. I read self help/self empowerment books. I watch TED talks. I try to educate myself on the latest digtial trends. I find myself in an existential crisis every week and in deep philosophical debates every month. I consider myself one who is always looking to evolve and grow for the better. At what point though, does one say, “I won’t be too hard on myself today?”

Think about the pressure we put on ourselves on a daily basis. The pressure to be better people. The pressure to be better parents, bosses, and bloggers. The pressure to lose and extra pound or learn a new skill. The pressure to find nirvana and be in tune with the human experience…to exist in the here and now.

STOP!

Take a deep breath and know that things are working out for you as you read this. You are ever evolving in the best way possible. The joy isn’t always in the destination…sometimes the joy is in the journey. YOU WILL GET THERE.  Happy Hump Day.
