Unless I accept my faults I will most certainly doubt my virtues- Hugh Prather
The quote couldn’t be more true. How often have I doubted my virtues because of my faults? Countless times. Just as one man’s trash is another’s treasure, our faults may seem like virtues to others. How do we learn to accept them, accept that we are just human?
One answer would be to live to Just.Be.Enough. We aren’t perfect beings. If we were we would all be alike, that would make for a boring world. I don’t do boring, in fact, it’s the little quirks and added spice that make my days enjoyable.
This week I have reminded myself that it is okay if I cannot get everything done. The pile of laundry that needs to be folded isn’t going anywhere. It is okay to let it wait, it will be folded eventually. Nothing to beat myself up over, nothing to worry about. Just do what I can and let that be enough.
Lately I have been reminding myself to breathe. That there are things out of my control, sometimes I have to go with the flow. Sometimes I have to embrace changes that I didn’t see coming. In the end I will be okay, just have to stay true to me.
