Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect

“Practice doesn’t make perfect.  Practice means progress.”

I continue to release and then reclaim my character defect of perfection.  When I identify it is back again, it is a Step 4 moment.  I shine a light on it and share it’s presence with my sponsor as a Step 5 action and then release it to my Higher Power as a Step 6.                If only it would stay released!                                                                                       Maybe next time Perfection is creeping back into my life, I need to remind myself of the quote above and redefine what “perfection” actually means to me.  A definition that would be attractive is – doing the best I can and being satisfied with progress.  Instead of trying to get rid of perfection, yet again, I use my Higher Power to modify it!
