under -performing? Don’t “barely make it”. That would be cheating yourself. Crucial work is best! Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
Like a quote, this Haiku has to be framed as a reminder for all to do their very best.
I’m impressed with writers who operate with concision and strict constraints. Your haiku strikes just the right tone.
That middle line, “That would be cheating yourself” is so thought-provoking. I wonder where pushing ourselves to give our all gives way to giving ourselves space to be imperfect. I struggle so much with that.
Pushing ourselves to give our all does not “give way” in any way… but it does give clarity and direction for us. It informs where we struggle and what is the point of “too much”. These are important places to recognize in one’s self for mental and physical health. Giving ourselves *space* is another important strategy in times of doubt, ..trouble, ..an overwhelming time.
THANK YOU for reading!
