it's okay

A Snippet of Inspiration

Each Monday is devoted to a snippet of inspiration because a little rain falls in everyone's life.

It's okay.

It's okay if you're not ahead.


It's okay if you're just hanging onto the tail end trying to catch up. 

It's okay if you aren't in first place.

It's okay no matter where you are in the race. In this game of life. In the general scheme of things.

Because, see, you haven't given up. You haven't quit. You're trying. You're giving it everything you've got. And that is all that matters. 

It's okay!

  2. True! I think that being the third child in our family made it easy for me to know this at a very young age. I do feel sorry for first children who seem to especially plagued with the idea that they always fall short of other's expectations.

    1. It's interesting. I am a middle daughter and I was always the one who felt like I was on the outside. It took me a long time to overcome that :)

    1. It is ever changing, Kelly. For so many years I felt so competitive, but I have learned that I am right where I am supposed to be.
