Permission to Be
Today I stopped chasing perfection. Today I gave myself permission to not be perfect. Perfection is for God and I am not Him. So today, I gave myself permission to be human, to be imperfect–in short, to be me.
Isn’t it time you gave yourself permission to be imperfect?
Don’t let the quest for perfection hold you back from your dreams. Do your best and accept that it’s the best you can do right now. Do yourself a favor; let go and let God.
Because if you’re trying to be perfect, than you’re trying to be someone you’re not. Unless you recently attained godhood, then by all means, go ahead and be perfect. 🙂
Today I gave up fretting about the things I can’t change. Those things are:
- Curse Breaker: Enchanted will never be perfect no matter what I do. All I can do is give it my best and that has to be enough.
- I can’t record the audio book myself without a quiet space to record in and lots of time. This was a crushing disappointment. I really want Curse Breaker: Enchanted to be an audio book because I love audiobooks. I belong to a small, but fervent, audio book club at my job and I know the members would love to listen to my book.
- I have to trust that a narrator will give my book a chance and take a chance on narrating it for no upfront money. I have to hope it will sell enough on Audible.com to make it worthwhile for the same narrator to come back and narrate the sequels.
- The manuscript editing will get done but slowly because I work a lot. I edited another 5K words today bringing the total edited word count to 35K. I have about 65K words yet to edit on my first pass through the manuscript. Tomorow’s goal is to reach 40k words edited.
