The Quest to be GOOD!

I am so over hearing the "Quest for Perfection". As a Christian its something I hear so often, but I have to be honest, I am really getting over it. The fact is that the concept of being perfect is so overwhelming, that we burn ourselves out quicker than if we just positively lower the bar in the beginning. If we begin our quest in life with the goal to be GOOD, rather than be PERFECT, than I think we can find it easier to live a happier and fulfilling life.

We all make mistakes, that is a given, and I don't need to dwell on that. It is a lot easier for us, though to be good. To make good choices, to surround ourselves with good people, good music/art, good books,  good films, and good TV shows that in turn will inspire us to be good people. Whatever you consider each of these things to be 'good' is really up to you, just as long as these 'good' things make you happy and make you want to be a better - gooder you!!

I personally feel that I can definately be a good person. I can be a good friend,wife, mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, aunty, and sister-in-law. I would also like to think that I am good at all these roles and that those who I interact with think I am good! It really is a more pleasant way to look at life when you think about it like this. It's easier to think about being good than just being ok.It puts a smile on your face and of course, that's a good thing:)!!!


  1. Great post and I do agree with you. For me I have this little thing called Mother Guilt, where I try to be perfect all the time and if I'm not, I feel guilty. It's time to stop x

  2. When people think of you what do you think is the first thing that comes into their mind?

    I think smaller goals helps us to achieve more :)
