The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

Don Miguel Ruiz quoteGood morning!  It’s an extremely foggy morning here in Chicago; in fact, I can’t see Lake Michigan at the moment!  All I can see is an envelopment of grey fog.

I took one look outside and thought I needed some inspiration.  I love the writings of Don Miguel Ruiz.  He wrote the positively profound book, “The Four Agreements”.  If you have not yet had the chance to read it, I strongly recommend it.  It is one of those rare books that causes incredible reflection.

I particularly love the quote above from this book.  It really allows us to take the pressure off from always having to be 100% every single minute.  Maybe our best is 75% on a particular day.  If we have truly done our best, even if it is not what our best was the day before, that is a victory in and of itself.

I hope the fog clears, and I hope you have a terrific day! Don’t be so hard on yourself!!
