Welp - I have decided that going into this challenge, I am NOT going to do it "perfect". I am not shooting to be number 1, or the perfect teammate. All I am going to do is make sure that I PARTICIPATE in every challenge! So, I've given myself permission to not get ALL the points, or whatever. As long as I am attempting a portion of the challenges, then I will consider it a success.
The biggest problem with me is that I go into something (anything, really) all gung-ho, and determined to do it perfectly. At the first iota of non-perfection, I give up. Maybe not right away....I probably justify it somewhere in the deep recesses of my brain, and try to "make up" for the initial imperfection. But, alas, I cannot make up for it, and eventually throw in the towel. I'm not letting myself get away with that this time. Nope, I have given myself a great gift. The gift of being...well...imperfect. :-/
Believe me, I know that I am not perfect by a LONG shot! I don't know why I decide that in order to participate in something I have to do every single thing outlined, EXACTLY like it says, no wavering, no skipping, or ELSE! Is anyone else like that? Probably not. But, I am working on NOT being that way! I think that if I can make this a breakthrough when it comes to fitness/exercise/healthy lifestyle, then it will trickle over into other areas of my life......places that I could use permission to NOT be perfect!
So far, so good! I'm gonna keep rocking it the best I can!
