Promise of a new Day

The battle to keep up appearance unnecessarily, the mask—whatever name you give creeping perfectionism—robs us of our energies. —Robin Worthington—

Because we fear we’re inadequate, and because our expectations of ourselves are inflated along with our assumptions about others’ expectations of us, we live in the realm of pretense. However, the truth of existence is that we’re exactly who we need to be. None of us is inadequate, yet all of us fall short of being perfect. Our journeys are designed to introduce us to new information, new possibilities to growth and development. We must trust that we are at the right place, at the right time, with all the preparation we need to succeed, here and now. Fretting takes our focus away from the moment and the rich invitation for personal involvement that it’s extending. Remember it’s through the full interaction with the present that we are nurtured emotionally and spiritually and encouraged to attain our full potential. Today I’ll remember that I’m all I need to be.
