Are you on a quest for perfection? I can completely relate to you. I have been there…engaged in a quest for perfection. Guess what happened? I felt constantly frustrated. Yes, I would have moments of elation when I felt I had delivered as close to perfection as I could get…yet I seemed to live most of my life in dissatisfaction. As soon as I seemed to get close to perfection in one area…I would see other areas that were far from perfect.
Let go…and live in the moment. Any perfectionist is always living in the future…a future where some day the world is perfect. Even though I have let go of the quest…I still believe in and strive for quality, yet I am satisfied, happy, and revel in the effort. As you reflect over 2010 and look forward to 2011, it is easy to have the perfectionist lenses in your glasses, try to approach this reflection and anticipation with peacefuland loving thoughts towards yourself and others. I had to work at this today …when my husband told me this morning that I sounded just like his mother.I do love his mother…but you get the idea…it wasn’t the greatest moment of our almost 18 year marriage. We did end up laughing about it. You see…you can bring love, peace, and laughter in…and let perfection release and lift away from you like a deep breathe out.
What is your goal anyway? Most likely, some piece of the goal or maybe the whole thing is to be some version of successul, happy, relaxed, peaceful, connected, and loved. None of those are tied to perfection…they are really aspects of soul fulfillment.
