Good Enough

This girl said something I like again:

At one point, embracing "good enough" would have felt like a compromise or settling, but now, good enough feels like a gift, like I don't have to perpetually wait until some unknown point in the future where I'm finally healed or wise or something enough. The idea that I might be good enough RIGHT NOW feels rather radical.

I don't feel it all the time, but there are moments when I think, "Hey, I might actually be an okay person.", and I think those moments are expanding. Maybe someday I'll want to shoot higher, but for now "good enough" feels like an accomplishment.

amen. i've always been bugged by the book "Good to Great." Good Enough is not a cop out, it's resting in what God is already doing.
