I think this will be my new motto. It was an observation made by Pete my bike instructor following last weekends bike training. He mentioned that I've been trying too hard for perfection and being too hard on myself. I need to just relax and enjoy it. Very true.
I mentioned this at this weeks counselling session and my counsellor thought it was very interesting. She reiterated that I need to focus on the positives and stop magnifying the negatives. I still need to concentrate on being more assertive and less passive.
It's happening slowly but definately happening. I'm still very conscious of what I'm doing and it feels a little alien at the moment but that's what happens when you're making changes in the way you behave.
