August 11 - I Am My Best Self When...

The actual prompt for today was "I am the best version of myself when...", but that didn't seem like a very good title. 

To actually answer this prompt, I'm actually going to need to decide what my "best self" is. On August 9th I answered the prompt "3 Things I Love About Myself". I feel like my "best self" should probably relate to my answers there. I said that I loved 1) My Hair, 2) My Empathy, and 3) My Optimism. Although my hair is awesome, I don't think it necessarily relates to me being my "best self". My empathy and optimism are both essential to my world view. The other thing to consider with your "best self" is your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. 

I am the best version of myself when I take care of my physical body by eating healthy and exercising. I am the best version of myself when I always assume everyone I know and interact with is a good person trying their best to do good. I am my best self when I remember that we are all interconnected and that everyone I know and interact with is part of me, or the collective existence on this floating rock in a swirling galaxy.
