Always Do Your Best

ALWAYSDOYOURBEST-1024x512Every morning I pick an agreement out of The Four Agreements cards by Don Miguel Ruiz to hold as a theme for the day.  Always Do Your Best is my favorite.  When I get down on myself for something I think I did poorly at I can ask if I have done my best at that moment.  I almost always can say yes.  When I hold space for myself and can ask the question it gives me an opportunity to suspend judgment.

I am also following the Deepak & Oprah program on shedding weight and one of the journaling questions is to reflect on how self-judgment fragments your life and keeps you out of balance.  When I read the word fragments I had this image of myself flying into a thousand pieces every time I am in self-judgment.  That visual really got my attention.  No wonder I have a hard time being in my body some days.

Here is a meditation video I created a while ago to help bring back fragmented pieces of self.

What is your favorite agreement of the Four Agreements and why?
