Desperately seeking perfection erodes emotional intelligence. Self acceptance, unconditional love is strongest when flaws are acknowledged.
Practicing gratitude is one of the easiest emotional fitness exercises to help combat perfectionism. First, remember all you have been given; then remember all you have been allowed to escape. This Emotional Fitness Poster Coach will remind you of both. DOWNLOADED IT FREE THROUGH DECEMBER 1, 2013.
To use as a poster coach post it where you will see it often throughout the day as a reminder of the all you have been given. For more instructions about how to practice any of the Twelve Easy Emotional Fitness Exercises visit this web page.
THIS WORD PRESS’ DAILY PROMPT inspired this POST “An impending new year gives rise to reflection and goal setting. What will your goals for 2014 be? It’s never to early to start thinking about self-improvement!”
My answer: To just continue to do the best I can. At 76, good enough, even half good or almost good are goals to be desired. Did you know constantly raising the bar, which is what this daily prompt calls on you to do is a fallacious argument or what I call twisted thinking. So I didn’t like the suggestion it was time to focus on self-improvement. Hence, the above.
Remember to share and care all you find of value on the internet. My hope is you find my posts of value. All posters posted on my blog can be obtained at the EFTI Store. Many are free.
Thank you for all you do and as always stay strong.
