4. Present Over Perfect
Of course, there are many blockades to the happiness of people, but more often than not, they’re obstacles that we put ourselves in place. Perfectionist traits are one of the more common ones. Occasionally, unless you are sure to succeed, you will not make a move. Or maybe, you spend so much time working on something to make sure that in your own eyes it’s fine. A lot of the time, these patterns can get in the way and Shauna Niequist is all too familiar with it. That’s the reason she wrote this novel. Like all of us, she had these perfectionist tendencies, and she spends a lot of time helping others living in this situation live in a whole new way.
