I’m three days behind in my #30daysofgratitude entries, I’m going to acknowledge that fact but not dwell on it. Once upon a time, I would have let the perfectionist persona I once had to derail me and stop me from even completing the entire series because of the lapse. I no longer allow that to happen.
Often times, we get caught up in trying to reach perfection, don’t meet the expectations, and quit. I’ve learned that that type of thinking is self-sabotage and self-defeating.
Progress and persistence are more admirable pursuits than perfection. If you find yourself in a position where you are constantly being hard on yourself, let it go.
Accept the fact that you cannot do it ALL without any slip ups or errors. Simply acknowledge the error, learn from it, and then continue with the flow.
In continuum, my gratitude lists goes a little something like this; I am thankful for:
Day 19: the wonderful smiles and hugs that I get from my two boys when I walk through the door.
Day 20: the small gestures of generosity that came my way this week.
Day 21: sharing my day’s events and concerns with someone that actually cares.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, have an abundant holiday full of gratitude and love.
Peace and Bliss.
