It seems to me that life is more about practice than perfect. When I keep this in my thinking, I don’t get so easily discouraged. Indeed, it seems to me that the journey to success are various sizes of incremental improvements. Some increments are big & some improvements seem infinitesimal. Furthermore, I often learn more from my failures than success, particularly when I think of failing as a verb & not just a noun.
So things that I continue to practice on include:
- Encouraging words
- Listening to understand more than reply or argue
- Trusting God
- Paying attention to the Holy Spirit
