It’s amazing how our minds can work as humans. Naturally our minds think negative. Naturally our minds look for what is most comfortable as well as fantasies. This thought process can completely fog reality for us. If we don’t train our minds to stop being negative, we will always think we are still at ground zero or lost.
One way we create a constant negative thought process is by searching for perfection. Let’s be clear, it does not exist. We as humans are not perfect and never will be, that is one of the beauty’s of being us. No process is perfect, that is one of the beauty’s of a journey. Through imperfection is where you find out who you truly are, what you are made of, what you are capable of withstanding, what you want out of life and so much more. The scars, the low moments, the battles, the tears are who you are. Own it and don’t hide it just because it doesn’t appear “perfect”.
There can be many factors that have deemed what perfect looks like: society (social media), our parents, significant other, close friends, work and others. Again remind yourself, perfection does not exist. If we consistently try to look for something that is nowhere to be found, you will end up in a lost place. You will have no idea who you are, what you want, what makes you happy, what brings you joy, what you love or any of it. This is when you will consistently beat yourself up and think negative about your life.
A perfect life is not possible but an inspirational and impactful story is. Write your own story with your imperfections and share it with us. We all have the ability to inspire ourselves and others through our journey. We all have the ability to take what is not deemed as “perfect” and use it as a springboard for greatness.
Remind yourself that you are not perfect and that is ok, no one is. Remove that stress, pressure, fear and negative thought process. Look at your life at how it truly is and own it. Once you do, you’ll fall in love with it and you’ll be what we all are at the end of the day: a blessing.
