“Do or do not. There is no try.” -Yoda
I didn’t get to the laundry today. I’ll try to get to it tomorrow.
I didn’t make cookies today. I’ll try to make them tomorrow.
I forgot to get butter. I’ll try to remember that next time I’m shopping.
How many times in a day to I use the word Try, rather than just doing whatever it is? It gets exhausting and deflating when I realize all the things I wanted to “try” to get done that day, and nothing feels accomplished. Except that my little girl is happy, had some outdoor time, fed, and well rested. Sometimes, as a momma, that seems to be all I can do is to take care of my girl. That, I just do. Why is doing the same for my husband so much harder? We need to try to make time for each other. Correction, we must make time for each other.
