I Don't Have To Be Perfect

Lark
They are bringing the lift chair today between one o'clock and three o'clock. I want to call and reschedule. I am not ready for anyone to walk into our home. I am never ready for anyone to walk into our home. I will keep the appointment.  I will endure this intense discomfort. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

My hair is a mess and I have gained weight and my clothes don't fit and I don't want people I have not seen in a long time to see me until I can get my hair styled and lose weight and my clothes fit.  I will go out and allow myself to be enough. I will remember.  I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

My car is a mess and my house is in chaos. My intentions are good but the work does not get done. I wish I were different. I wish I would keep everything in place. I want to scold myself and put myself in time out. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

I should be tracking the hurricane. I don't have an escape plan. I can't imagine where we will go if we go. I think I should know and that I am letting go of something very important. I will remember. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be perfect.

Please, God! Help me to remember that only you are perfect and that you are in charge and I don't have to be perfect!

Amen!

It's also a reminder for us to stop and realize we are far more critical of ourselves than others are of us. Stay safe! You will be in our thoughts.

Lark..the coolest thing about you is that you are perfect just the way you are...at this exact moment. And, when the next moment comes, you will be perfect then too. Great reminder that we have to let go of what we perceive as needing to be done and give ourselves permission to do the important things, one step at a time. Thanks for sharing.
