None the less, before you reach ‘pancake perfection’, one must have an ‘epic fail.’
Many will not admit that they went through this phase but everyone does. Even Jamie Oliver. Sadly, I missed the ‘Kodak moment’ and therefore, cannot show you the pancake of doom.
Our first pancake production looked rather like something found, post surgery on ‘Embarrassing Bodies’. Though, once it was covered in chocolate spread and golden syrup, all was OK. At that point, the aesthetics are not necessary, but the sweet, gooeyness as it meets your tongue is of crucial importance.
Perfection is a high standard, even in pancakes! There’s lots of pressure in todays world to be perfect. Perhaps with regards to our image, our relationships or our skills.
Sure, we should always aim for excellence in all that we do, but when trying to be perfect eats away at our self confidence and view of ourselves, we need to take a step back.
Know that God values you, just as you are. He is blind to your imperfection. Of course, he’s aware of the mistakes and errors, but those have been dealt with.
You have a God-given purpose in life – Don’t limit your purpose by your imperfection.
