But what if instead of seeing it as a failure or a mistake, you simply viewed it as part of the process, and just kept going.โฃ
โฃ
Reality is, each time you fail you learn something about what does and does not work for you.โฃ
โฃ
You can always apply it and use it to make you stronger.โฃ
โฃ
And when you let go of the expectation that your journey will have a start date and end date, you’ll be able to free yourself of the expectation to be perfect.โฃ
โฃ
Because reality is you will never be perfect. โฃ
And there really is no finish line. โฃ
โฃ
You simply have to learn to live in the process. โฃ

I had mornings where I wanted to throw my scale out the window, literally. โฃ
