One of those days

Every so often, you’re going to have one of those days

One of those days where you struggle to focus,

where your energy feels lower than usual,

where you can’t seem to muster up the right words no matter how hard you try, 

where the one thing that you thought was going to go well doesn’t. 

Sometimes you’re going to know why you’re having one of those days — maybe you didn’t sleep well, or perhaps something in your life has been distracting you. 

Other times, you’re not going to have any idea why you’re having one of those days. 

In either case, experiencing an exceptionally challenging day doesn’t make you a failure or any less exceptional — it simply means that you’re human. 

Do your best (because that’s all you can do). 

Celebrate the days where you’re able to crush it at work and at life. 

And on the days when things are harder than usual — one of those days — be kind to yourself. 

As long as you resolve to show up every day, everything is going to work out in the macro.
