Perfection and acceptance
Sunday, February 14, 2010
And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. ... I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing, or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.”
I have a hard time with perfection – the good old on-off personality. I love making plans and putting up goals but as soon as my life and doings does not cope perfectly with those plans I fall off completely and find myself burping on the sofa…
There has to be a level of ”good enough” to accept – there´s even a selfhelp book with that title ”good enough”.
I´m just suspicious that I will let ”good enough” mean ”second best” and that is NOT good enough:
”Once you say you're going to settle for second, that's what happens to you in life, I find.”
- John F. Kennedy.
Coming Thursday I have a mission to educate some people from the region in ”Media handling” – I can feel that it makes me tense already. I have had this lecture before and it has been appreciated. But it was a while ago and suddenly my confidence is shaky. To feel secure I will use three-four hours today and tomorrow to freshen up the material in my brain – and then Tuesday Wednesday I will do some rehearsal . It is an important lecture because it will give new customers if it works well.
Just for today… I will accept that tomorrow disturbs my peace of mind and I can handle it by giving it some attention and preparation.
One of my problems with that lecture is that I feel so FAT - that has not happened to me before and I have been heavier than now!
Thanks for reading
