Since my last post I've been thinking about those niggly bits that I mentioned back then. I've come to realise that I will never achieve perfection and that living with "niggly bits" is ok. I've said it before and am reminding myself again that life is not a matter of black and white. In fact a lot of life is spent living in the grey and the more I can embrace that, or at least accept it, the better off I will be.

For a long long time I've been an all or nothing person and changing that has to be a very conscious effort. It certainly doesnt come naturally. But the more I think about how my life is spanning out and the person I'm becoming as I mature (hehehe ok I should just say "get older") I realise that its ok to not always strive for perfection or do my best to be my best. Flowing on from that I'm learning to live in the grey.

Sometimes that means just going with the flow or rolling with the punches. Sometimes it means accepting that I wont always choose whats best for me. Sometimes it means just not sweating the small stuff. It also means that I'm learning to accept myself warts and all, faults and all and honouring the uniqueness that is me.

I may never be a champion Half Marathon runner but I'll always be able to say that I had a goal to run a half marathon in under 2:30 and I achieved that. I may never be a world class figure competitor but again when I had the goal to compete I saw it through and managed a placing at the state level and got up on stage at the nationals. Who knows what else the coming years will bring? But one things for sure and that is my dedication and commitment to achieve goals that mean something to me.

And when you open your eyes to the big picture and look back over all you've done and achieved, it sort of puts the little niggly bits into perspective. Are you celebrating your big picture achievements or sweating over the little niggly bits?
