The amazing world of being PERFECTLY IMPERFECT allows us to make mistakes and grow from them to become the best version of ourselves. Sometimes mistakes are hard on us and we beat ourselves up, such as, staying in a dead-end or life sucking career/job to long – staying in a relationship that isn’t filling one’s soul with joy/happiness – following others interests to fit into a group instead of finding things we really enjoy, oh we could go on and on here, you get it. When we stay in these areas with self-doubt we do not leave an opening for the universe to fill these areas back up with a great career/job, a loving healthy relationship, activities we get excited about going to do, etc.,
Is it self-doubt that if we listen to our hearts our hearts will lead us down the wrong path? Maybe, because as a child we had an amazing imagination where there were no limits and we were often told by the adults around us, “that we were being silly hearts, silly dreamers, not using our head”. Here is the thing about being told these things, we do not learn and grow if we do not follow our hearts and make a mistake from time to time. I like this term, “When your heart hits your head”, because our hearts are our passions and our heads are our logic. This can be played out in so many scenarios: The heart says, Go after the career/job that fills every cell in your being – the head says, buuutttt it does not fill the ideals of making it big. The heart says, Leave the relationship that isn’t filling one’s soul with joy/happiness – the head says, buuuttt you may be alone for a while. The heart says, go do those really awesome activities you love – the head says, buuuttt your current group may not want to be there with you. Here is the thing about the “buts” in life, we live in an imperfect world with no right or wrong answers its ok to follow your heart. Be imperfect, take the chance for an amazing job, a healthy relationship where you can be your vulnerable self and be loved unconditionally, go do those activities that you get excited about. If any of them do not work out perfectly so be it grow/learn and keep moving. Don’t ever be hard on yourself for not being perfect, because the people that love and care for you, “Love and care for you with every perfectly imperfect trait you are made with”.
Find your happy always in every way possible. Take it from someone that can come crossed a little quirky, a little out there, definitely imperfect, but I always have good intentions in everything I do. If those intentions do not go the way I perceived, I learn and grow from them, move on and do better next time. As long as I can personally lay my head down at night and know I did my best that day, I know it was a good day. We are all a work in progress in our lives, so remember to learn and grow to become the best version of ourselves.
Life is a Journey my Friends make it what you want it to be!
