"Drops of Awesome:" Positivity
I just read "Drops of Awesome," by Daring Young Mom. It was so inspirational. She talked about how whenever you have a positive thought about something you're doing well, you remember that you're not doing it perfectly, and you feel discouraged.
I, like most people, am a perfectionist. My own weaknesses (for lack of a better word) disgust me. I have a desire to be perfect, to be unashamed of who I am, but it's hard because I'm not perfect (shocker) and I do LOTS of embarrassing things. :)
But I also do good things. Both statements are true. I do good things and I do stupid things. So I have to choose which one to focus on. I choose positivity. Things are the way they are, they don't affect how I think, feel and act. How I interpret them affects how I think, feel and act.
None of us are perfect, but we're not lost causes either. Focusing on the small victories adds meaning to a confusing life:)
