gratitude-a-thon day 469: there’s nothing better


“When you know better, you do better.” Maya Angelou said that. She was the smartest and most eloquent of people.

I’ve always told my kids, “Do your best. You can’t really do better than your best.”

And that about sums it up. We do our best, even when we aren’t doing so well. It’s our best at the time with the information and skills we have. Sometimes I think that’s a catch-all, a little bit of a cop out, but no truer thing was ever said (EVER, EVER IN THE HISTORY OF MAN).

I am doing my best right now. I am giving my all. I am trying with 100% of my wit, but it may still not be good enough. But baby, it is all I got. It’s all any of us have.
