I wanted to make my first post simple, yet powerful. Sometimes a quote is all you need to rejuvenate & keep going…
“God is fully aware that you and I are not perfect. God is fully aware that the people you think are perfect are not. And yet we spend so much time and energy comparing ourselves to others–usually comparing our weaknesses to their strengths. This drives us to create expectations for ourselves that are impossible to meet. As a result, we never celebrate our good efforts because they seem to be less than what someone else does.”
–Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Let go of those expectations. Of who you think you should be. You are putting forth great efforts everyday, big and small, and those deserve some celebrating. You and your life deserve some celebrating. We are all far from perfect and it is so easy to get caught up in comparison. Don’t let those fixations get the best of you. I think when you can take a step back, clear your head, and catch a small glimpse of your efforts, you will notice your progression.
