“Do the best you can with what you know and when you know better, do better.”
Today, I am taking the liberty of letting one of your fellow readers speak to you. It is my birthday today, so I will take the day off from writing!
This quote was shared by a reader who had “attended a workshop for parents of children with special needs. I find I say it often to myself because some days I am hard on myself because I do not feel I am doing all I can for my son who has autism …or I question my parenting skills for my daughter … or a countless number of other situations where I question myself.”
She continued, “However, when I think of this quote, it helps me to realize every day is a learning opportunity. I am not expected to KNOW how to do everything right but the situations I experience each day help me to ‘know better, and therefore, do better.'”
“When I have a moment where I belittle myself for not doing better, I say this quote to myself and realize that I just had a learning experience that will enable me to do better tomorrow.”
She closed her note to me by writing, I just ordered new checks and they had a place to put a favorite quote. … I was limited to # of letters so the quote I added to my checks is Something great WILL happen today!”
Today, follow Rhonda’s advice: When you have a moment where you be little yourself for not doing better, say this quote to yourself and realize that you just had a learning experience that will enable you to do better tomorrow.
I do not make mistakes; I just have different types of learning experiences.
