Life ain’t perfect. Life will never be perfect. Not everyone sees life this way. For some perfection is what they need to strive for.
I was one of those people. I had to be the best at everything I did. I had to say yes to everything. I had to please everyone. No matter what I felt.
Where did this lead me?
Clearly, not into any good places, at times. The reason I followed paths in my life where wrong. At the time I didn’t see this. I thought it was where I was supposed to be.
But just because you may think you’re supposed to be somewhere, mean that you actually should be?
There is more to life than being perfect. More to life than pleasing others. More to life than doing everything that crosses your path. What’s the reason you do something? Is it because you love it? Because it is going to help you
What’s the reason you do something?
Is it because you love it?
Because it is going to help you achieve your dream?
Because it’s going to make you the person you want to become?
There are still times I think this or that has to be perfect. But the word perfect doesn’t rule me anymore.
It shouldn’t you either!
Make sure you do the things in your life for you. Know the people who help you be the person you want to be.
I’ve still got a lot to achieve in my not-so-perfect life. But as my tattoo says: I Am Enough.
So are you!
The inspiration for this post. The book I got given for my birthday. My not so Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella. I really enjoyed it.
Today I had three sittings of reading it. As I had started reading it before today, I was on page 100 or thereabouts. To finish, the rest of the 431 paged book in a day felt great.
I worked on my goal of reducing telly. No telly days. Well, today was one of those days. I got to get into a pass time I have put to one side and enjoy immensely.
It has put me in a positive mind frame. I have helped a friend through a terrible day.
To top it off my auntie-in-law is off the breathing ventilator and has been reunited with her baby in the maternity ward. Hopefully, both will be out by the end of the week.
Hows your not so perfect life?
