I have been noticing the more I try not to be perfect and let things be as they are; I am feeling less stressed. I find I am much happier and accepting. I can also share with others that it does not have to be perfect and mean it.
I am that girl who stressed about everything. When I am doing something it has to be absolutely perfect. I always wanted people to walk away and say "Wow, that was amazing". It did not matter if I knew them or not...their opinions meant so much to me. Can you imagine the stress that caused...anything I did the fun was taken away. How can something with that kind of stress attached be fun and fulfilling? It Can't and IT WASN"T!
Now when I am doing an event or a party, anything really....however it turns out is the way it is supposed to be. I now have a blast and I don't worry about the small stuff. I enjoy what I do and really take pride in how it all turns out.
The other thing that happened to me trying to be perfect; I was so afraid that it would not be good enough, I would not do it at all. That's the thing with being perfect; you are terribly stressed and filled with debilitating fear. When the fear set in for me; forget it, I would not do it at all. I would make up excuses as to why I couldn't, but deep down I knew the truth and that would haunt me.
What kind of life is that....being perfect really messes with you. I am not saying don't strive to be the best you can be...what I am saying is be the best you can be; when it is all said and done, take pride in what you just accomplished. Don't pick it apart and berate yourself and say it could have been better.....NO, It WAS PERFECT!
Think about today's inspiration my friends...what do you do to yourself on a daily basis trying to be perfect? It is something to definitely think about. Until we meet again.
