It’s Not About Being Perfect. It’s About Trying

Anyone else find their mind spinning a million times a minute these days? I mean, I guess my mind has always spun like this because, you know, I’m a chronic over-thinker, but the world today makes the “spinning” even more prominent.

If you’re not emotionally affected on some level by what’s happening in the world right now, are you paying attention? Not that letting emotions take over is a good thing, but I think there’s also a balance to be found.

You’re not irrational to care. What’s rational isn’t always reasonable either. I know…confusing, right? Hence the whole “is your mind spinning in circles,” cause what is even going on anymore?

This isn’t meant to be a political post, or a covid reflection. I don’t want to get political or anything on here, so I’m going to leave this pretty open-ended.

The world is crazy right now: I’m not sure what to do. So I just do the best I can.

Aren’t we all just doing the best we know how?

It’s not a perfect solution. Life isn’t perfect. But it’s not about being perfect. It’s about trying. Trying to be better than we were yesterday. And better than we were the day before that. It’s about growth. About finding purpose. About having faith and trusting that even when we don’t understand…when our minds are spinning in circles like a maze with no way out; there is a God who sees, knows, and does understand.

So whatever may come I hope we can rest in that faith. I hope we can grow from that faith, too. Knowing that we are flawed humans, perfection is impossible, but we can learn. We can keep trying.

We may not be perfect.

But we can be better.

Let’s keep trying to be better. To create a better world for those who come after us. Keep trying to be on the right side of history by choosing love at the end of the day. By having hope. By having grace. By choosing faith.
