What is perfect? We all have and hold ideals for ourselves and what we expect from ourselves, our family, our friends and all the situations that make up our lives. We want certain moments to be perfect like Valentine’s Day, first dates, our wedding day, anniversaries, birthday parties, and many others. We also want for ourselves the perfect bodies, perfect relationships, perfect families and more. Then we wake up from our perfect world dreams and realize that in reality, nothing is perfect. In fact, perfect is in the eyes of the beholder.

We have all heard of the saying, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Well I say that perfection is also in the eyes of the beholder in that perfect is defined by each of us in different ways. The difference between feeling secure or confident in what we deem is perfection and letting other people’s perceptions taint our own views, is that in our worlds, and through our eyes, we are meant to feel perfect just the way we are. In a world where we love ourselves exactly as we are, perfection is not measured by the onlookers of our lives and is determined by only how we see ourselves.

In my last post, I discussed how great it feels to be kinder to ourselves and I challenged you all to be kinder (you have to admit it feels good!) Here, I challenge you to view your life and all of its imperfections from your own perspective and stop letting other people or society taint your judgments of yourself. And I know, we can all be our own worst enemies and feel like we could never live up to our own expectations. This is the hard part. But we can start by accepting who we are now, our imperfections and all, and just love ourselves exactly as we are – free of our own judgments. By setting ourselves free of our own judgments, we may be less inclined to entertain the judgments of others - Now that, my honey bees, is freedom.
Until Next Time.

Find the Love. Live the Life. Love the Life you Live.

With Love,
