mantra to remember

in this busy.can everything world i often forget that if i don't do everything then it's still okay.
if i don't achieve every dream
or read every best seller
or sew everything on my wish list.
if i don't clean the house as well as i should
or have a perfect dinner prepared every evening for my family
or have freshly folded laundry put away in every cupboard.

life will be okay.
yes, i can do anything.
but i need to learn that i don't have to do everything.

*found on tumblr. from here.


  1. Oh Ellie in think we're soul sisters.

    BTW I love your banner juxtaposing the landscape with what looks like a very tidy fabric stash. Love it!

  2. I think I need to print this out and stick it up all over the place.

  3. Love this!
    Will carry that thought with me today.

  4. Thanks for reminding me too :) Maybe I will put it on the fridge in BIG LETTERS! xx

  5. Oh yes. Wise, wise words. How easily they get buried under the 'shoulds'.

  6. Oh I love this! In fact, I've just added it to a blog post I was writing! Perfect! Hmmm... maybe I could get it tattooed onto the back of my hand...
