I must have heard this somewhere. I don’t remember where. And yet, it’s a beautiful reminder. For us all.
I look through the journals with daily readings my daughter has made for me. More of them than I care to admit remind me to slow down and know that enough is enough and I am enough. I work with my clients and more often than maybe they’d care to admit I remind them to slow down and that enough is enough and they are enough. It’s as if way too many of us are selling ourselves short and pushing ourselves too hard. And beating ourselves up for not getting “there.” Wherever there is.
Instead we can accept the perfection that we are.
The challenge of holding the two opposing thoughts – that perfection is an unattainable goal and I’m not good enough unless I’m there, and that the present is perfect just as it is, and therefore I am – and you are – prefect just as we are.
To accept the perfection that is me means to acknowledge the beauty of the universe and rightness of the world. And of myself. It means to stop striving and forcing, and instead to allow…and accept.
It means learning to love myself exactly as I am, even as I continue on my path for more. It means enjoying what is rather than noticing what is not. It means laughing and breathing and saying a resounding yes.
Go ahead, accept the perfection that is you.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, and please share this post with others if it resonates with you!
