I have a lumpy…
I’m just gonna admit it, right now. I have a LUMPY butt!
Don’t laugh. As you get older, you probably will, too. You know what I’m talking about. I mean… things just change!
I can never get my legs, thighs, hams, glutes… that whole part of my body, all smooth like butter. (I think my love of butter might be the problem!)
It never looks right, no matter how hard I work…and it makes me a little CRAZY!
I went to the gym to work out. Yea! I’m feeling pretty good about myself. Disciplined me was showing up! It was Planet Fitness, a no judgment zone, RIGHT? I’m gonna look good!
Then this girl walks in, in her cute little matching outfit. She’d curled her hair and put on all her makeup. C’mon!
The girl had on LASHES to go to the gym! (I had on mascara and I thought THAT was a lot of effort.)
I was feeling so STRONG curling my 20-pound bicep weight until she gets up next to me… and she’s like “I think I’ll put on 40.”
I started thinkin’, “Just keep your little matchy-matchy butt over there away from me!”
Wow! Have you ever been overcome with a spirit of comparison?
I was feeling excellent until I saw somebody who was doing it BETTER than me. Then I LET myself feel less than.
Did you catch that? I LET me.
The responsibility is on ME, not God. The Bible says, “Let not your heart be troubled.” I let her rightness amplify my WRONGNESS. (in my own eyes)
If we’re always striving for perfection… we’re probably going to FAIL. Then, we’re just going to get salty, angry, blaming, condescending, and just plain TOXIC!
Chasing perfection will just drive you crazy. Believe me, NOBODY’S perfect! No… not one!
Do you ever struggle with the pursuit of perfection? (“Y” or “N”) I know I do. We can talk about it.
