Will You Forgive Me?

Today I wrapped up my last assignment for my first course at Devry University. The assignment: My Personal Mission Statement. We were told to basically write out our plans for the future and describe how we plan on achieving those plans. It took me two days to complete(3 hours each day). At the end of it all, I actually feel accomplished. If I get full credit for this paper it will be the first time EVER, that I’ll have received a grade that is near perfect. My grade will be a 99.3. Near Perfect! I can’t believe I did so well. I did work my butt off though. So with this all said. You’ll have to forgive me for not having a regular post today, although I’ve sorta made a post out of just talking about my class. I’ll be commenting on other blogs today and finally reading up on some of the stuff I’ve missed.

In case you haven’t jumped onto the “30 Days of Truth” bandwagon yet, I strongly urge you to do so. It’s only the 4th day and I can already say that I feel better about myself. Each day, after writing my little blurb of truth, I leave the computer feeling good about myself. It’s a wonderful thing.

30 Days of Truth
Day 3: Something you have to forgive yourself for.

All throughout life, while overcoming my self-esteem issues(and even to this day) I strive to be perfect, or close to it. Even though I don’t care what people think about me, I still want to live up to my full potential. At times, I tend to try to be perfect though. I want to be that man who people turn to when there’s a problem, or when something needs to be fixed. I just need to realize that I can fix problems and still have my own flaws as well. So, this is something that I have to forgive myself for.

I forgive myself for putting so much pressure on myself to be the best, or to be perfect. As Reese would say, “everyone has their blemishes.” No one is perfect. We all must realize this. We have to stop living up to everyone else’s expectations because sometimes, people expect “perfect”. You can’t expect yourself to be perfect. Neither can I.

Today, I am going to cherish my imperfections and realize that I don’t need to be perfect, or near perfect. I’m fine the way I am, and I’m not going to beat up on myself for not being better.

(1) Something you hate about yourself. (2) Something you love about yourself. (3)Something you have to forgive yourself for.

      i don’t mind at all. I actually encourage others to do the same. it’s a great personal growth and writing exercise. I will definitely check it out. comment, or link my page in yours when you’ve got your first post up and i’ll definitely swing by. not that i probably won’t come by anyway.

      “the best versions of ourselves” i like that. you’re right though. we should be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.

      Well, I just checked my updated grade and it went down by a tenth of a point but even if I just get a 90 or above I’ll be completely satisfied. I can’t be greedy, ya know? Haha
