You have to do the best you can every day. As not only what you do but even what you don’t do, changes the lives of those around you. As much as the pain in your life, of what you go through, leaves little room for doing anything but surviving the next breath, the next day and day after, you still need to shake it all off and do the best you can at that very moment.
It could be something you have to do for yourself, for your parents or your siblings or your kids, your work etc. Mundane things in life even. Do it with a smile on your face, even a fake smile.
Because those who you love and those who love you, are watching every move you make and how every muscle in your body behaves – from a smile on your face, to a straight back, to your hair tied nicely, to the lipstick that you put on, to the nice clothes you wear. Everything. And they take cues from it and accordingly behave in their lives.
Do your best. It’s hard, but still.
