Desire is an essential and inevitable aspect of everyone’s life. There is an inner desire for perfection. The perfection of each passing day of our lives, the perfection of our relationships and our professions. If your mind revolves around a thought such as “ I am born to have a perfect life, I possess everything I need and acquire whatever I wish to do.” Well then, your off to a good start. You begin planning things accordingly. We start working towards the fulfillment of our so called desires. We start living our assumingely perfect life.
We start ignoring petty issues , which can be taken care of in the future. Why spoil the present , in thinking about the future? You say; I have a perfect life now, I can’t afford to ruin it. So, is this thought process incorrect or would you rather say imperfect with an imperfect dreamer lifestyle.
If you believe that you live in this dream life but you don’t, your not living in reality and therefore people might think that you begin to act like your never going to get it together. Unwanted emotions begin to enter your life. Fear, anxiety, disappointment.
Number 1- accept that their will be bumps in the road. Many people that are stuck in perfect situations are actually fearful of making mistakes and or failing. So many of us want our children to be perfectly happy. However, if we want our kids to be perfectly happy, then we must be comfortable with them making mistakes. We must make them able to rise to challenges when they occur.
This comes with practice, patience, bumps in the road, teaching moments, do overs and so on. They must be able to make mistakes and rise to the challenges. Recognizing and celebrating successes when they come are also a great thing to do , to celebrate their success is also your success!
If you dream of your young girl or boy to find their voice, being honest , open minded, empathetic, caring, helpful, understanding, and the likes; being perfect is not going to get her there. She or he must experience some mistakes and failures to practice these qualities to drive her forward towards success.
Remember , never let your mistakes stop you from moving forward. When we are perfectly imperfect we get the chance to Do Over, and do overs allow us to start fresh again. Realizing that you are simply you and that you are not in competition with anyone but yourself is a first step!
Let go of the overwhelming tendency to compare yourself with others. Throw out the words perfect or as good as and start with I am. Decide to celebrate who you are and what you are good at. What do you contribute to the world and the surrounding environment around you? When you do this people will follow your lead because they will see how great YOU are!
