You’re saying, “That’s all she’s got?” Yep, that’s all I got. But sometimes you don’t need much. I was reminded of this word recently while doing some work for someone. They specified a preference for the “OK” spelling over the “okay” variant. OK, whatever!
- When I’m running around at 5:00, scrambling to get something together for dinner because I got sidetracked, I’m learning to say “it’s okay” to myself. (That’s why you bought those frozen pizzas, remember?)
- Oh no – I forgot the laundry I started on Sunday and it’s now Tuesday. (It’s okay. When’s the last time my husband didn’t have clean clothes to wear to work?)
- Darn, I forgot to go to the bank while I was out today. That means another trip out. (It’s okay. There will be more errands anyways).
- Ugh, I kind of let my day get over-scheduled and now I’m feeling stressed. (It’s okay. So look at your calendar; can you work in some breathing room in the near future?)
- I didn’t accomplish much today. (It’s okay. In hindsight, you didn’t sleep much the past few nights and probably really needed that nap).
- Um, I’m not nearly where I’d hoped to be business-wise by this time. (It’s okay. And look at all you’ve learned along the way).
