I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God’s business.
Michael J. Fox
In the same vein as last week’s quote, this one tells us to stop setting ourselves unreachable goals. It took me a long, time to realize that my stories, my household, not even I myself have to be perfect. Of course, I strive to make everything as good as I can, I try to excel, but I’m no longer thinking I can be the perfect author, the perfect mother, the perfect wife and the perfect housekeeper all at once. It’s liberating to say the least, and my eBooks, my household and my family are still getting the best I am capable of giving. I just don’t feel guilty for not being perfect any more.
