We all have higher goals we may not ever reach, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying. And trying is way better than sitting around doing nothing. Once you start trying, you’re more than halfway there. But just because you are halfway there and not all the way there, it doesn’t mean you aren’t “doing it right.” You’re doing what you can – right now – and that’s great. You are allowed to make mistakes and have setbacks along the way. The key is to keep moving forward. If all of us were saints, who would be left to be the sinners?
And sometimes we need to be sinners in order to remember how to be saints.
Let yourself off the hook for the setbacks and be sure to pat yourself on the back for your successes. Your “failures” could very well be others’ successes. Do your best, play your part, and hopefully we’ll come out ahead. I’ll try to remember that for myself, too. Good luck and keep looking forward.
