Created For More

Jul 01, 2014 11 Comments by


My friend has a black tank that reads “Better Than Yesterday” in big yellow letters.

I hate it.

We weren’t created for better than yesterday tanks and slogans that lose their meaning the moment they become advertising. We’re all made with a singular purpose, personal and universal alike: We’re made to be “The Best We Can Be.”

There’s nothing wrong with celebrating the little things on the way to the big ones. But there’s nothing right with stopping short of our full potential because we’re slightly less inferior than the day before.

When the difficulty of reaching our full potential hits like a hurricane, we can find something to feel good about, make a t-shirt and Facebook post, and watch the life we were born to lead fade. Or, we can take the smallest opportunity and transform it into our boldest triumph.

    My list has gotten longer of the things I forget. These days it usually has to do with rounds and reps.

    I often forget to move laundry from washer to dryer, or to get clothes out of the dryer until I need something that’s in there.

    “Slightly less inferior than the preceding diurnal period” would look great in yellow letters on a black shirt!

    I forget a lot of things especially in the morning before coffee….. Once I waited in the school drop off car line for about 15 min only to forget to drop Alivia off at the door. Pulled away from the school and drove a good 2 minutes before I realized she was still in the back seat. Oops!

    Jerk technique today was not something to be proud of… But finally PR’d after being stuck at 155.

    I leave my work stuff in my car. (Towels, pool shirts, fanny pack,etc.)
