Fuck Perfection

I apologize for the language but really! 

As I look for perfectionist tendencies show up in my life I am blown away to the point of swearing, with a hint of a smile. It’s everywhere! 

I try to be the perfect mom, wife, friend, daughter, sister, yoga teacher, living in recovery... without awareness it feels like I am just living my life trying to do the best I can. That’s not bad. 

However with more awareness I see that below “do my best” is the subconscious thought that “if I don’t do [fill in the blank] perfectly it means I am unworthy”. 

Damn that subconscious statement is heavy! It pushes me into doing and doing and doing. Striving for perfection (which is unattainable) and getting so exhausted in the process. 

This past month my focus has been on slowing down and being present more then speeding through life with the doing. 

When I feel myself trying to be send the perfect newsletter....present the perfect teacher the perfect craft with the kids... I remind “Kim you are human. You are never going to be perfect. LIVE your life. Be KIND. Be USEFUL. Be PRESENT”. 

A reminder...It’s okay if it’s not perfect your worth has nothing to do with perfection. You and I are innately worthy. We are born with infinite worth.
