Accept and expect.

We can accept ourselves and also expect more from ourselves.  Gretchen Rubin

We can accept that our house will never look perfect,
and we can still  make an effort to keep it uncluttered.

We can accept that we are sentimental,
and we can still let go of things from our past.

We can accept that we may still buy things on impulse,
and we can expect ourselves to make use of what we do bring home.

Accepting ourselves does not mean we are  resigned to things never changing.
It does mean that we see ourselves as perfectly imperfect,
and that we treat ourselves with compassion.
We know and expect that we can and will do better as we are able.
