I recently gave up perfectionism for peace. I decided I was done trying to achieve this illusion in my head of how things should be and how I should be because it was killing me.
I just wanted to be me and have that be enough. Goodbye, monster in my head.
I was done with the endless internal struggle. I wanted relief. I needed it.
I was no longer willing to sign up for all of my previous duties that were a result of my constant mission to be better, to be more, to be different.
After years of this self-inflicted and relentless battle, I stopped pushing and trying so hard to measure up to the impossible standards I had created for myself.
I surrendered to what was, and therein lies the secret:
Acceptance of what is and accepting myself as I am.
I made a decision to embrace all of these pieces and I finally let go. I trusted it would all be ok without me micro-managing every little thing and then the endless, heavy pressure in my mind began to dissolve.
I breathed out what no longer served me and I inhaled a new vision for my life; one that gives me space just to breath and to be.
I'm perfectly imperfect and so gloriously me.
And I wouldn't want it any other way.
