Be Gentle with Yourself, Librarian

Here is a picture of me doing storytime. Because it's funny.


It's okay if you're behind on your GoodReads goal (I am).

It's okay if you're behind on your RunKeeper goal (I am).

It's okay if you don't finish your Overdrive audiobook before it is automatically returned. You can check it out again and keep going (or move on to something else).

It's okay if your blogging has slowed down to a trickle. You will pick it back up when you want to.

It's okay if you didn't follow your meal plan every day this week. Everyone survived.

It's okay that you woke up at 6am, mind racing, because then you did some yoga to try to reduce that anxiety.

It's okay that you cried with frustration at part of your day on Wednesday because the next day was a new day and it was a better one.

Summer is coming. Be gentle with yourself, librarian.

I've been seeing the same bumper sticker on various cars in southern Indiana ... IGBOK ... it's my new motto: It's Gonna Be OK.

Your post is a good reminder that we all need to be gentle with ourselves.
