I am too critical. There I admitted it. Whew!
It's not anything I didn't know. Friends, family and co-workers have pointed it out numerous times. Nothing is ever good enough and I am constantly looking for ways to make things better whether it's making the bed or a client proposal or mowing the lawn. The bar to reach is always perfection...
and I'm exhausted.
Over the years I've read books on how to lay down the "perfection expectation" on how to be ok with just being ok or how to accept that life is full of flaws and so are people for that matter - especially me. I do feel it's great to pursue excellence, but not at the cost of contentment. So for the next week I am going to choose to grow and transform my mind. I am going to reprogram my critical thoughts with ones that are of a softer perspective. I am going to see wishes, not weeds, moments of togetherness not messiness and opportunities for peace not perfection.
How can you transform your corner of the world this week?
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2
