Why We’re Not Perfect…

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.  – Anna Quindlen


We are either hard on self or on others. How? We beat ourselves up for not being a certain way, not being thin enough, not beautiful enough or simply not good enough. Whenever we don’t like what others have done or how they behave we’re essentially questioning their lack of perfection!

not possible

We all know that perfection isn’t quite possible on this planet. Then why do we behave as though it’s within reach? It’s an internal creative drive but we shouldn’t let it overrule us. We have all of eternity to be perfect, for today let’s just take it easy, just be,  and enjoy that beautiful sky or the fall colors out there!
