Success is progress not perfection. This was a favorite mantra in my former professional world. We strived to be the best and do the best, but we acknowledged that growth takes time.
I’ve learned a lot about me in the past few years. I know my strengths. I know my weaknesses or to be politically correct…my growth opportunities.
I self reflect to a fault. I strive to grow. I desire to be a better wife, mother, friend, leader at work.
But mostly, I want to be better with accepting who I am in Christ. I am His child. A work in progress. I don’t have to be like everyone else.
At writing group last weekend, we were challenged to write about what we like about ourselves. That’s not exactly easy to do. But, we did it.
And, I realized those weaknesses (a.k.a growth opportunities) are actually things I have grown to like about myself. I understand myself better. I am a INFP personality type. Click the link for more information or to discover your personality type.
Yes, success is progress not perfection, and I am a work in progress.
I am okay with me.
I challenge you to reflect and ask yourself this question….what do you like about yourself?
