Balancing aspirations and acceptance

So often there’s a disconnect 
Between what we mean to say 
And what we said; 
Between what we’d like to feel 
And how we actually felt; 
And — for me — between the bold swaths of color 
I dream of painting 
And what actually appears on my canvases. 
How can we find a healthy balance 
Between striving to be better 
And accepting and appreciating 
Who and where we are?
