my journal notes continued (sept. 1, 2014):
you’re not ever going to be able to do everything perfectly. learn to live from grace to grace. realize: everyone makes mistakes and does stupid things (even if you never see them do it).
sometimes we are so facing our tasks/trials, that we cannot see anything other than those. yet, others can see our situation in another viewpoint, and because they are not in our present place (nor are they us), then perhaps we would do well to listen to their perspective, it may not be the exact thing that will aid us, but it will enable us to consider more creative views.
sometimes we just need to take a break away from facing those things (do something else for a while). sometimes we just need to step back and be more objective, because, sometimes our subjective and habitual patterns of handling life is what is holding us back from overcoming.
everyone may not be for you, but at the same time, not everyone is against you either. whose side are you on? be on your own side. be for you - not against yourself. (spiritflier)
