The journey in life is to live a full and meaningful life, not to be critical of ourselves and get distracted by what we lack, instead focus on who you are.
I’ve learned to strive toward becoming a better me and not idealizing what it means to be perfect. Taking the time out to acknowledge all your strengths and accomplishments, is one way of changing your imperfections to motivation. Its a simple exercise but i urge you to try it.
All the things you will come up with will surprise you. And even more rewarding will be the feeling you of relinquishment. You’ll begin to realize that those same erroneous thoughts you have of yourself of being imperfect, has strengthened you throughout time.
For instance, You may think you are not on target for a certain goal in your life (imperfect). But when you think about how driven you have been in accomplishing that steps towards this goal, you see your own courage (I’m Perfect).
With a simple inflection, change in punctuation, or a change to your internal filter, you see things in a different light.
How do you choose to see yourself…..
” Opening to the totality of your being is like saying to yourself, ‘I may not be perfect, but i’m okay with the way I am.’ ” – Richard Carlson, PHD from Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and its all Small Stuff.
