Confidence is a wonderful thing. I have struggled for years with believing in myself. For too long I was over concerned with trying to be “perfect.” I hope you know that that is unattainable, a unicorn, something completely false and never real. Because I didn’t. I never thought what I did was good enough. I always wanted more. It has taken me years to understand God is the only one capable of perfection.
#2 is absolutely necessary to balance out #1. We should have dreams, high hopes, but also a sense of reality. I think of peachy perfect as just a little under real perfect. It’s all good, just peachy. Just enough. A little sweet, a little tart. A little crisp, a little smushy. Peachy perfect.
Because God did create us perfect. But we are under the spell of being human. Know that you are awesome, but be confident enough to admit that you are human. That you are peachy perfect. And that is good.
