Perfection is a mental creation that requires striving for specific outcomes. Working hard towards rigid expectations can be very stressful and upsetting. Let go of ideals and perfectionistic thinking, trying to be absolutely perfect in the short term. Grant self honour in doing something fairly well over the long haul and never quit the endeavour. One step forward and two steps back may happen just as two steps forward and one backward can also happen. As long as you commit to moving forward, slipping and sliding is not a problem. Giving up is the real problem. Keep risking going forward on your path over and over again. Relax and breathe consciously in challenging moments and be your best!
