I've been asked to sponsor someone in the program and this is both exciting and daunting. I think about how much more I need to learn. I wonder if I'm ready for guiding this person. I hope that I have the wisdom to work with another as my sponsor has done with me.
And that has turned my thoughts to imperfections, mainly mine. Having expectations of perfection in myself and others is unrealistic. I know that and yet I can punish myself or another through comparison, smugness, and judging.
I've felt it necessary many times to justify what I was doing, rather than just accepting that I'm okay and that I don't owe explanations to anyone but my HP.
I am telling myself that there is no perfect way, only God's way. No comparison, no perfection, no judging, just an open mind, humility and acceptance.
