Excellence vs Perfection

I am thankful today that perfection is not a requirement for fulfillment in this life.
  • Those who strive for perfection will often become discouraged and sometimes give up altogether because of the impossibility of their task.

I am thankful that excellence is achievable.
  • Those who follow after excellence will reach the goal one imperfect step at a time.

You must trust the perfection in the imperfection to succeed.
~ Robert Stack

Give yourself permission to fail.
Give yourself permission to try again.
Give yourself permission to be unique.
Give yourself permission to enjoy the journey!

Second Chances Second Choices

I am thankful today for second chances and second choices. And third, and fourth, and fifth…
Life is inundated with chances. And choices. Each day is a new. Brand new with no mistakes in it…yet.

I am thankful today that God is bigger than my past, bigger than the choices I wish I had not made, bigger than the chances I wish I had taken, bigger than my failures, bigger than my fears, bigger than my do's and bigger than my don'ts. He is bigger.  
His great big Love never ends. His mercies are huge and new every morning.  And His faithfulness is vast even when my faith is small, even when my doubt is great.  He remains faithful to His love of me. He remains faithful to His beautiful idea of me; to the beautiful dreams He has placed within my heart.

And His faithful love lines my daily path with stepping stone chances and choices.
As long as I will, I can choose to grab ahold of chances and to make choices that potentially will change the course of my life -- will take me one step closer to His beautiful idea of me.

As long as I am breathing the oxygen of this earth, there are chances yet to be taken; choices yet to be made.

"I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead..."
~ Philippians 3:13
