I've been talking to a lot of people recently who have huge expectations of themselves. I'm also a perfectionist and want to go to extremes most of the time. I relate to huge expectations.
(Remind me some time to talk about hot yoga!) When I check in with God, I've been getting a recurrent message to not be so hard on yourself. That works for me too.
Let me encourage you to set aside time for a meditative moment. A moment you connect to something else. What can you do everyday? What are you already doing? Taking your dog for a walk? Breathe in the freshness of the (oh so early) morning air. Remind yourself to see beauty in everything around you, to see the holiness in nature, the loveliness of your little creature. Take that attitude back with you as you center your breath and meditate for a moment. Do you drink a warm beverage? Bless it. See how easy it can be? Brush your teeth with gratitude! Attaching mindfullness to your daily activities is a nice step to take.
The reflection is this: You are a part of the creation, you are always connected. Take some quiet time to listen to the divine.
