I’ll never achieve it

I’m looking at myself in the mirror and I reach up to my face to adjust my glasses because they feel out of place. Only, I’m not wearing glasses.

On March 15, 2017, I did one of the scariest things I've ever done in my life. I got laser eye surgery.

I wore glasses for 20 years.

So even though I can see that I’m not wearing eye-glasses because the surgery was successful, I still have the reflex and sometimes the feeling like I need to adjust my glasses.

This got me thinking. For the past two years, I’ve been trying to improve. I’ve been trying to eat better. I’ve been trying to live a minimalist lifestyle. I’ve been trying to write a novel. I’ve been trying to become the most awesome me I can be. And I’ve been hard on myself for my “failures”.

Not adjusting my eye-glasses is not hard. I just have to not do it. Right? I meant, they’re not even there! There’s nothing TO adjust. And yet, I’m having a hard time kicking that habit. So, I really need to cut myself some slack when my diet isn’t as perfect as it should be, or when I go overboard on a few purchases.

I’m still going to strive for perfection, but I will accept that I will never achieve it.
