If you believe that perfect is achievable and you feel bad about yourself because you haven’t yet achieved it, please hear me when I say this, “I understand!”
I spent the majority of my life standing behind the murky veil of being perfect.
Oh sure, I was unhappy back there. But I felt weirdly safe behind that veil too. I even wore my dissatisfaction with myself, my I’ll-never-be-enough attitude, as a sort of badge of honor. My battle cry was “I won’t be satisfied, by glory, until e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. goes e.x.a.c.t.l.y. the way it should and when e.v.e.r.y.b.o.d.y. is happy.”
Think I’m being dramatic?
No, I didn’t actually say those things, (that’s not what hard core perfectionists do) but I sure lived in that awful place. And I was choosing it.
If you are behind that veil, you are choosing it too.
So, since I know you cannot find happiness in that awful place, why not open the veil and your mind to something different?
Does this (even the tiniest bit) ring true for you?
If you give your best to whatever you do, then you have done enough. Your best is enough.
To me, truer words have never been spoken.
Will you let your best be enough?
You won’t be settling.
You won’t be taking the easy way out.
You won’t be failing.
You will be showing up and giving life your best.
If you truly give the best you have to all you do, and only you know how to measure that, then you, my dear friend, have done enough.
And you, right now, are perfectly enough.
Say it with me, “I will give my life and all that’s in it, the best I have, and I will let my best be enough.”
What you do next matters…
