Confessions of a recovering perfectionist.
The further I get on the journey of this life, the easier it is to let myself off the hook. I'm learning to jump in with both feet and figure out how deep it is later... I'm learning the lessons of Grace.
This video clip of Pete Briscoe is great. I can totally relate to what he's saying.
I Am Second
Today's attempt at being an un-perfectionist comes in the form of school schedules. Technically, we should have another two weeks before a fall break. But, with all the kids' friends off this coming week, I have decided to take a week off as well. It takes everything within me to convince my self that it's okay. After all, who's in charge here? I want to live everyday giving the same amount of grace that I depend on myself. The school work will be done. We'll get our required 36 weeks in before summer. It'll be one more way to keep the first things first - because I am second.
