Trying to be Perfect may be inevitable for people who are smart and ambitious and interested in the world and its good opinion…What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of Becoming Yourself. ~ Anna Quindlen
An Observation: Perfection is a judgment of the self & the world. Sometimes it shows itself as constant striving, struggle, or competition. At other times, we may simply feel frozen from fear of failure. Perfection is another face of “poverty consciousness” or lack. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. It is a far greater tribute to our Spirit to confront our fears and accept our humanity. Realize this: Our Worth is not defined by what we own, our money, or other people’s opinions of who we are. These are all transient. We are Eternal. We were born Worthy. There is no need to prove anything, to struggle, convince, or to compete. It is a waste of life force energy. You are more valuable than that. Chuckle at the notion of Perfection as defined by man made rules.
I Am Divinely Created Perfection embodied as me! How about that as a mantra to jumpstart your day?!
