What kind of adventure story am I writing? Am I writing one of being the light to some people who have never seen the light? Am I writing one showing love to people who have never seen love? Or perhaps some days, and in earlier times, I was writing one of nobody loves me, I am too fat, I can’t write (yes that’s one lie I’ve been telling myself lately), I don’t like this job, I want a larger house, I’m not a good mother, etc.. Are we writing a story of judging ourselves and finding fault for past mistakes or evening what is happening right now?
Do you hate making mistakes? I do, and I can beat myself up over the dumbest little things.
It is time to let go of our perfectionism. It is time to let go of the inner critic. It is time to make peace with who you are today, not yesterday. It’s time to start liking you. It is time to let go of other people’s approval. If we are pleasing our Heavenly Father the rest will fall into place.
I don’t have to be the smartest, the prettiest, the funniest, the most religious, the best Mom, the best wife, the best writer. I just need to be me – the woman God created me to be. I need to be a woman that God can use right now just as I am.
