Everyday the world will drag you by the hand yelling, “This is important! And this is important!, You need to worry about this! And this!” And each day, its up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No, This is what’s important.” – Lain Thomas

As someone who religiously got up early from the age of about 6 to study for spelling tests, its really hard to accept anything less than perfection. I remember the first time I got 89% in a class test in Primary school. I bawled in front of everyone because it was less than 90% – needless to say they all thought me mad.

Thats the standard I’ve set my whole life, thats the stupid level of perfection I wanted to achieve in everything every single day. I’ve realised how destructive and unhealthy that is. Thats the thing about perfection – it’s not real, its not attainable, and the pursuit of it will drive you insane. I’m sharing this because I’ve been there and I’ve learned the hard way the toll that this pursuit can take.

I’ve learned that challenges become unexpected blessings or lessons. Life requires a total surrender, a flying leap of faith. Sometimes the tighter we hold onto life, the louder the message from the universe is. FAITH! It will all turn out as it should be, even if it doesn’t seem that way at all in the moment. Every experience is an opportunity to practice letting go and of grasping onto life as we believe it should be, and free-falling with acceptance into the life we have.

The road is not easy – But if your behaviour matches your intentions, then that congruence, will enable you to achieve your goals and help you become the best version of yourself. We’re human, we’re not meant to be perfect. It’s your journey. Own it. Bloom where God planted you. Be your most authentic self, all in. Honor yourself and make choices not because someone or society expected it of you, because they are right for you and consistent with your beliefs.

My whole teaching is this, accept yourself, love yourself and celebrate yourself… These words sum up the entirety of my beliefs. God bless! πŸ™‚

Blessings and Love….
