There’s the kind of perfect nobody is–never making mistakes. It’s the “you’ll never be good enough /smart enough/strong enough” perfect. That kind of perfect is perfectly awful!
And there is the fully here, fully engaged, “right-here-right-now” kind of perfect. It’s the “I am where I’m supposed to be” perfect. It’s a no-regrets way to live. Doing the best you can with the day you have in front of you. Loving and living and being as kind as you know how.
That kind of perfect can make mistakes, because missteps and detours are part of the journey. That kind of perfect can say, “Thank you” and “I’m sorry,” because it doesn’t have to be completely right and completely alone. That kind of perfect can comfort and be comforted, give and receive. There’s a lot you can do and be if you don’t always have to be right.
As promised, here’s your one, easy step:
1. ♥ Remain engaged, with love. ♥ It really is that simple.
What do you think makes perfection?
