While we all know the things we must do every day, what about those days when we just can’t? As much as we wish it didn’t happen, there are times when we just can’t do the things we know we should. There are times when we can’t do the things we know others are counting on us to do. There are times when we let others down. There are times when we let ourselves down. There are times when we just simply……….can’t.
So, what about those days when we just can’t?

So what do we do on those days when we just can’t?
We just simply…don’t.
Of course we can’t have these sorts of days all the time, but when these sorts of days, the sorts of days that leave us bone weary come, sometimes we just have to give in and don’t do it. Whatever it is, sometimes we have to allow ourselves to just surrender.
Then, we remember that tomorrow will be a brand new day and that for today, it really will be ok.
