Good is good enough for me

All or nothing. It really did sneak up on me. It is not my preferred way of thinking, but I recently realized that I have been acting that way, whether I thought about it or not. If I don’t do it perfectly, then I won’t do it at all. If I can do only part of it, then I will do none of it. Whew! It is time to take these feelings out into the sunshine and see them for what they are. I think it was Voltaire who said “Perfect is the enemy of good.” That is NOT how I want to live my life. Good is good enough for me. I will strive for perfection, but not be surprised when I don’t reach it.
