All or nothing thinking doesn’t serve us. It does not motivate. And for the most part it is not true. For life is a complex business and we are complex beings. We will never get it completely right all of the time. We are not perfect nor are we expected to be. When you catch ourselves thinking that you want to give up because you haven’t met your own expectations, don’t take the thought seriously. It’s just a thought. Laugh at the absurdity. Praise what you’ve done. Gently see where you can improve. Life does not have to be so black or white. It is shades of grey, my new favourite colour. And shades of every other vivid, beautiful colour too. We make mistakes. Forgive.
