Authenticity versus Progress

Today I learned that some days, you just have to do your best.  I believe that if I have good intentions, even if I don't see immediate results, good will come from it.  I thought that if I put myself on the right path, and believed in it enough, and deserved it enough, things would turnaround and I would see it.  When faced with a stumbling block, I wondered, is this my old luck showing its face?  Is this something that if I work harder can be overcome?  Or is this a detour that will shape the next path I take?  I don't know.  What I do know, is that I am trying my hardest to improve myself, to learn more, and to make the things I touch better.  If it turns out that at the end of this year, nothing has changed in my life, I will be able to say that I did my best and I am proud of the efforts I made, I will consider the year a success. 

I hope you all had a productive week and plan to take time for yourself this weekend.  Let me know what you're doing to recharge and what your goals for next week are!
