I once heard a quote that said, “I would rather ShOoT for the StArS and HiT the MoOn, than shoot for nothing and hit it every time.” Unfortunately, I can’t relate. My natural tendency is to say, “Give me the stars or nothing at all, BaBy” It’s insane, I know. But I’m working on it.
If you have the “All-Or-Nothing” mindset, you know what I’m talking about. You actually believe that PeRfeCtiOn is pOsSiBle, so while the world is passing you by you aimlessly grasp for the air. Could it be that American poet Wallace Stevens was on to something when he said, “The ImPerFeCt is our PaRaDiSe”? One way I overcome this mindset is to think about all the bLeSsiNgS in my life that I would not have had things gone according to my plans.
What pLeAsUrEs are unknowingly slipping right past you as you pursue an illusive “All”?
Many MoOns have passed without me getting to enjoy them, but not any more. I’ve had the ReVeLaTiOn that “All” is OvErrAtEd. I’ll still shoot for the stars, but if I miss them, I’ll take the moon, Thank-you. :)
