Good morning, everyone!

I am so thrilled to be writing again, because it’s something I’ve always enjoyed doing, but somehow never really made a priority in my life. I’m a bit of a creative scatterbrain, so it’s extremely difficult for me to stick to one project and keep up with it consistently… Challenge accepted!

My posts will mainly be about my life experiences and the lessons I’ve learned along the way. All of my articles will contain at least one inspiring quote that I value deeply and always keep in the back of my mind.

Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are. ― Brené Brown

The Gifts Of Imperfection

That being said, the quote I want to discuss today is about perfectionism. In a world where everyone strives to be the best, it’s easy to fall into the trap of being a perfectionist. Only problem is, when you put the bar too high for every aspect of your life, you will get overwhelmed by the unhealthy amount of pressure you’re putting on yourself.

Wanting to be perfect is just in our heads. It's unattainable, yet it stops us from blossoming into the best version of ourselves. It's much healthier to learn how to accept and love yourself (for all that you are), instead of chasing after something that doesn't exist.

It’s good to push yourself, but trying to be perfect, look perfect, perform perfect or feel perfect all the time, is just the biggest trigger for stress and anxiety. Doing so may lead you to give up on your goals.

I’ve been a much happier and fulfilled person, ever since I learned to let go of things that are out of my control. Accepting myself as an imperfect human being has played a huge part in that.

Always remind yourself that everything will be okay. Even if it doesn’t feel like it right now, you will come out of your struggles so much stronger, more confident and experienced. Things don’t just happen for no reason, they happen to teach you something.

I hope I was able to inspire you to make the most out of another beautiful day! Stop judging and/or criticising yourself. You're much better off focusing all of that energy on what feels right. Put yourself out there with positive feelings and thoughts about what you want. Making mistakes is better than faking perfections. Now, go be you. You got this!
