Are any of you carrying extra weight on your shoulders already this year like I am?
The expectations I have of myself are a combination of my old self and superwoman, both who no don't exist.
This person I am trying to be ~ having my act together in every area of my life on day 3 of the New Year, aka a perfectionist ~ is unrealistic and unnecessary.
Instead I am choosing to hang up these expectations. Yes, I will still set goals for myself, yet realistic ones that meet me where I am today. Not who I was yesterday or who I desire to be in the future.
I am sharing this today in case you too have placed some unrealistic expectations on your shoulders and are carrying extra weight around. I invite you to join me to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
And let’s lay down the perfectionist mentality. Instead, let's meet ourselves for who we are, be honest with ourselves about the number of hours in the day and not try to be superwoman or superman. Let’s take each day as it comes and do what is ours to do. No more. No less.
God gave us enough hours in the day to do what we NEED to do but He didn’t give us enough time in the day to have us do all that we WANT to do.
With love and hope,
"Cast all your cares on God because He cares for you." - 1 Peter 5:7
