I am better, not perfect

I am better, not perfectThe pursuit of perfection, although an admirable ambition, sometimes gets in the way of one enjoying the moment.

I was in the mist of preparing for the SAT test and decided that perfection was my only option. I took the test, and sadly, did not score a perfect score.

Today will be a quiet day

Today will be a quiet dayToday will be a quiet day. This is the title and affirmation from chapter 10 of my book "Study to be quiet."
