When My Best Isn’t Good Enough
You know that awful “pit in your stomach” feeling you get when you let someone down? I had it just the other day.
I’d been under a lot of stress and had some health issues. I then got an email from a friend telling me how much I’d let her down on a project we were working on. I knew she was right. I knew I’d done all I could, yet some important details fell through the cracks.
I apologized and asked for forgiveness, and she graciously gave it to me.
Honestly, I knew I’d done my best and though my best wasn't good enough, it was all I had to give. I decided to cut back on some commitments, so this wouldn't keep happening. Sometimes we’re going to disappoint people and our best won’t be good enough, but it doesn't mean we aren't good enough. It may just mean we need to make adjustments.
