You and I have a long-standing relationship – I have spent much of my life striving to catch you but you skitter away, always just out of reach.
I wish I could tell you that I was done with this dance. Ready to accept my “perfectly imperfect” self, with all its beautiful flaws and quirks and foibles. Each day, I’m getting closer – letting go of that need to be perfect; loosening my grip on the “shoulds”.
So, just a head’s up – you might want to have an exit plan in place. Ready for that day when I turn around and walk away.
