Progress, Not Perfection

IMG_1219

Practice makes us proficient, not perfect. While perfectionism may seem like a worthy goal, it simply is unattainable and will steal your joy. Aim for progress in all that you do. Celebrate every ounce of progress you make. You are not designed to be humanly perfect in any way. You are meant to move forward, make progress and continue growing in this ever-evolving journey.

➡️ What is ONE area of your life where you can let go of perfection?

Mindful Monday: Love Everything About You

IMG_1198.PNG

You may think that you’re a complete hot mess. The mess inside that makes you seem like you are smothered with dirt and mud on the outside. You may think that you are not lovable because you ARE this “mess”. That your existence, purpose and gifts are not valued. But that is far from the truth. You are NOT this mess nor are you meant to be defined by it. The truth is that unless you start to unconditionally love, accept and OWN your own “mess” that you feel inside, you will never feel completely loved and accepted by anyone else on the outside. When you learn to accept that your “mess” is really your “message” that will change your life in an utmost powerful way even if you don’t think so at first, AND that it is this mess that supports you to change other lives as well, you will have been victorious in this game of life. Don’t deny your own mess. Don’t deny the gifts you have been given. Don’t deny the purpose you have been given. Instead OWN it all. Because ALL parts of YOU are deserving of your own love and acceptance first. Don’t deny the darkness you have been given because even the darkness has its purpose. The darkness is what leads you to witness the light of God inside. Shine that light on your darkness. Let that light lead you to shine brighter amidst your inner chaos. Allow yourself to flourish by accepting and honoring more of you today than you did yesterday or even just a moment ago.

Because YOU are lovable. NO. MATTER. WHAT. 💜
