I just finished Amy Carroll’s book, Breaking Up with Perfect, and have so many thoughts swirling now.
Breaking Up With Perfect is just what the doctor ordered.
Amy shares her concept of the Good Girl and Never Good Enough Girl who chase Prince Charming in disguise, Perfect. Perfection, especially in our day and age, is seductive and quite attractive, but a horrible friend who steals our joy.
By looking at everyday situations and her own personal stories, Amy shows how a life surrendered to Perfect verse a life surrendered to God, is a life never satisfied. She helps us learn to end the stress of chasing Perfect and embrace the joy God holds waiting for us.
When Amy wrote an ENTIRE CHAPTER on replacing tasks with people, I may have curled up into a little ball and wallowed for a bit. (Okay, that’s slightly dramatic, but you get the point…)
Amy’s wisdom tore through that concept (among others) for me. Because I love my lists. I mean, I love my people too… but I love my lists.
So I’m working on what she suggests in order to end my own personal pursuit of perfection. The lessons she teaches are hard and not easily learned, but she walks and talks you through the issues like a good friend sitting over a cup of coffee.
I can’t giveaway all her secrets and wisdom, so I recommend you go ahead and read it yourself. 🙂
(Hint! She has a rockin’ list of 50 Ways to Leave Your Perfect in the back of the book!)
