Progress, Not Perfection

Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.—Ecclesiastes 7:20 (ESV)

Don't be so hard on yourself. When you reflect on your goals and where you are in your life, focus on signs of progress. Every step nearer to your goal is a success—something you should celebrate and feel good about.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, help me to see myself with eyes of compassion and understanding. Guide me to appreciate the progress I am making to becoming my best self.
