Hey guys! Welcome back. Being perfect is something I think we all strive for. In college, it is extremely difficult to be perfect. I always have super high expectations and I am crushed when I don’t reach them. When I first started college I thought getting anything below a “A” was a bad grade. I attribute that to the way I was raised. However, college quickly taught me that I can’t always get an “A” and that’s more than okay.
I had to get a grip. I am imperfect just like everyone else. I have bad days and sometimes I don’t give everything my best. That’s more than okay. I won’t always remember everything and I won’t always get everything done. But that doesn’t mean I fail. Pushing to be the best you can be is good, but trying to attain unattainable perfection is not. Even at your best, you are not perfect.
I had to stop procrastinating. I definitely won’t be even close to perfect if I put everything off until the last possible minute. I have to hold myself accountable. Priorities are everything in college. You have to do what is necessary first because if not the chances it will get done are lower. The faster you get the done obligations finished, the less guilt you will experience when doing the things you enjoy.
I have accepted that I am not perfect, nor will I ever be. I have goals and expectations, but they are reasonable and realistic. I manage my time and get everything done in an orderly manner. I keep a to-do list and always try to finish everything that needs to be done. However, if I fall short I know it’s not the end of the world.
Having a positive attitude has proved to be beneficial. Striving to be happy and calm has helped me conquer so much. It diminishes the doubts I have in myself and helps me be more confident in my capabilities and my accomplishments. Having a positive attitude helps me realize that I can do more than I think I can.
I learned to fail. They say you learn more from failing than you do through succeeding. There is something very powerful about that statement. Failure is a part of life, but it definitely isn’t something I enjoy. I don’t like knowing I wasn’t the best or in some way fell short of what I needed to be successful. But I am not good at everything. There are some things I will just never be able to grasp, and that’s okay.
