There are times we don’t know which way to proceed or what to do next. We can become so blocked and stymied trying to figure it out that we just sit and spin our wheels.
In those situations, the solution may involve making some choice—even if it turns out to be the wrong one.
Ideally, we can meditate on our choices and one way will feel right and clear, and the other won’t. But in those times when we can’t get clear, sometimes we have to give things a try. Take that job. Move into a condo. Date that woman. If it’s a mistake, you can correct it as honestly, quickly, and humbly as you can.
You don’t have to live life nearly as perfectly as you think. Sometimes it takes making a mistake in order for us to get clear.
God, help me let go of perfectionism. Help me give myself permission to live.
