Working for progress over perfection is a hard concept for me. I have to constantly remind myself that failing doesn't mean it's over. It's just another opportunity for me to grow. I want to try and post more about areas I can grow in which is going to be difficult because no one wants to post about how their life isn't picture perfect.
People will often tell me that I'm always involved in something and it's true! Who doesn't want to be well-rounded?! I want to learn more and experience as much as I can so that I can be good at multiple things. I want people to know that they can count on me because I'm knowledgeable and experienced.
The amount of pressure and what I expected out of myself isn't always healthy. I know it's OK to be mediocre at some things and I pray to let go of the things I can't control. To the people who are living perfectionists, I don't think it's all that bad. It just shows how much we care and that we are eager for success. We must try to remember not to chase after perfection because we are enough, just the way God created us! Lately I've been following His plan over my own and I can honestly say I'm happier because of it.
