A list of what I am not great at:
- folding clothes
- cleaning house
- sending appropriate notes/thank yous
- comforting those who are grieving
- being a friend
- Bible study
The list goes on and on. I’m just really not a great human being. By the grace of God, I’m saved. By the grace of God, I’m being transformed. However, I’m not one of those super-talented people who has it all going on.
I completely dismiss the old adage, “If something is not worth doing right, it’s not worth doing.” I think there are a lot of things that are worth just doing. Like laundry or exercise or comforting others. Bible study is worth doing even on the days I can’t focus very well. Cleaning house is worth doing even if I just knock off the first layer of dirt. Exercise is worth doing even when I walk and don’t run, wear my pajamas, and last for 20 minutes, not an hour.
I wonder how many adventures are not taken, friends not made, and goals not attempted for fear of not doing it right or great.
I like the Nike slogan…Just do it!
