In all areas of our life we could imagine two lines.

Our standards.

And the reality.

What we expect and think we should be doing.

And what’s actually happening.

And, in the vast majority of cases, for all of us, there’s a gap between these two lines.

That’s normal.

It’s very rare and, if it happens, it’s only in certain areas, that people always hold themselves to their standards.

There’s always a gap.

It’s just how big that gap is and how we feel about it.

And when that gap gets too big, one of two things normally happens.

We move one of those two lines.

We either change our reality.

Or we lower our standards

We settle.

We tell ourselves that “it’s fine”.

“It’s ok”.

“It’s not that big a deal”.

That were actually happy like that.

That the effort required to move the reality line isn’t worth it.

And there’s no right or wrong.

Who would I, or anyone else, be to tell anyone where either of those lines should be for them in the different areas of their life.

But, as always, it’s worth being aware of.

Being aware of that choice we make when they gap between a standards and our reality gets too big.

Knowing that any choice is ok.

It’s our call.

But that it is a choice.
