Keeping Things Real

My patron saint, St. Francis de Sales, offers the following reality check to all those of us who are prone to be overachievers, perfectionists, and/or scrupulous, via the excellent Depressed & Catholic website (and you don’t have to be depressed and/or Catholic to benefit from the good mental health info offered there).

I love the idea of marveling that we ever manage to remain standing up as I so often find myself focusing on having landed on the ground–once again–and forget to be grateful for the grace that allows me to remain standing the rest of the time!  His humor is especially germane when I’ve become proud of myself for finally standing up more than falling down in a particularly challenging area and then–whoops!–there I am, flat on my rear again<g>…I love the saints and I especially love my patron!
