Heather at Cranky Stitch chose this week’s word, and I have been thinking about what could constitute a revelation, or what ‘revelation’ means to me right now. And I’ve been drawing a blank – as my rather sporadic recent posts have indicated, things have been a bit light on the inspiration and revelation front lately.
And then, just now, I found a list of phrases my hypnotherapist gave me when I was having treatment for driving test nerves. She’d focused a lot on my perfectionism and we’d talked a lot about how damaging perfectionism can be. I’d not really done much more than glance through the list of phrases, but this morning I looked and saw this. Just this little phrase:
Pretend you are human.
And it was like a revelation. So I’m going to pretend that I’m human. That I’m not some kind of slacking superwoman who really “should” be able to do everything – work, housekeeping, parenting, crafting, gardening, organising, administering, cooking, writing – and do it perfectly. And we shall see how that goes.
