Why Not?

So, here I am again.  Wide awake at 3am.  Wondering if I will ever be able to maintain perspective.  Wondering if I will ever allow myself to be comfortably fallible.  Of course, I am fully aware of my fallibility; the problem is I seem to see it as a punishable offense rather than a condition of my humanity.

Sometimes I will get it wrong….that’s not my goal, but it happens.  Sometimes I will be less scrupulous and when that happens I would like to call that good enough (maybe even normal since I tend to be over-scrupulous) instead of lazy. 

Maybe as of now, I will show myself some compassion. 

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
Gautama Buddha
