I have 11 miles to run tomorrow, so I’m keeping this short. Beattie writes about perfectionism. We don’t need to be perfect, she says; neither should we expect perfectionism from others. Strive to be your best, but if you’re not absolutely perfect, it’s absolutely okay. If you’re constantly finding fault with others – how they behave or how they choose to do something – you might constantly miss something that they’re doing well. Look at yourself and others from a different perspective. Let go of the expectation that things have to be a certain way – you’ll be disappointed if… I’m not done yet.
