A Drop in the Ocean

I've been rather worn down this season and all that I've wanted to do is pack my bags and run away to the beach with Wil. One of the biggest things that's helping to cause this exhaustion are feelings of inadequacy and the haunting idea that I'm never going to be the best at all of the things. I keep having to be reminded that life isn't all about competition and half the time there isn't even a competition going on...

In today's activity of avoiding work (which just so happens to have been blogging) and instead reminiscing of the beach I came across this quote from Mother Teresa and it was exactly what my tired of fighting-a-non-existent-fight soul needed to hear.

"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if the drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of the missing drop."
-Mother Teresa
