Work in Progress

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I haven't been taking the time to blog a whole lot lately. I think maybe because I'm just doing okay as far as SparkPeople goes. I am still tracking the good AND the bad. It's the bad that is stalling my progress and I know that and I need to get on that and I will.

I'm not perfect. Hardly anyone is.
Well maybe this guy is...

...whatever. He probably has stinky feet or some other flaw.

But I'm not perfect. I'm a work in progress. I will always be a work in progress. We are all works in progress. Am I right?

So I forgive myself when I fall short of what I want to be and how I want to behave.
I used to be Catholic where we had magic forgiveness. It was great! Go to confession and POOF!, instant forgiveness. Well you might have to say a few prayers but then...magic.
Now I forgive myself.

It's even better.

    Well I am not perfect, and I do have stinky feet (too often I open my mouth and put my foot it it, not my mouth but a pile of...; you get the picture).

I have made my way by little changes, by learning to be curious, by learning to put a kind spin of things when I can, and accept that most of us are doing the best we know how, in our current situation.

One day we may get to perfect, in the mean time we just do our best and hopefully give and receive forgiveness along the way.

    Progress, not perfection. Self correction is the key to continued success. As well as not having stinky feet
