Perfectly Imperfect


I’m sure you’ve come across the words: “You’re perfect just the way you are!”, and you may have responded somewhere along the lines of: “Am I really?”.

ImperfectWe often segment ourselves, ridiculing different parts saying: “I like this, but not that…”, whereas others tend to see and look at us as a whole and are probably less likely to pinpoint the flaws we nitpick about.

Im PerfectWhat we perceive as flaws are often the defining characteristics other people find appealing and attractive. Even though we hear phrases like, “we can’t all be the same” and “we are all unique”, most of us at some point just want to fit in and not be different or stand out. The attributes that make you unique are often the ones you wish away. Being accepted by your peers feels important and no matter how many people tell you its not or that it doesn’t matter, it still affects you none the less. People who sing this song probably didn’t have the problem or they’ve already overcome the hurdle of accepting themselves exactly as they are.

Nobody Is Perfect‘If you like and accept yourself, others will to’, is a concept that does not ring true for everyone. There are some fortunate individuals to whom everyone is attracted, even though they may secretly not like or even accept themselves as they are.  Onlookers with negative feelings about themselves will wish to trade places, thinking that likability would automatically solve their problems and assist to materialize all their hopes and dreams. On the other hand, some people often find themselves on their own and are totally happy and at peace in their own space, but observers may pity them, thinking it’s sad and that they must be very lonely. The lesson here is that situations are not always as it seems and what’s observed or portrayed on the outside may not be what’s prevailing on the inside.Happiness Perfection

Everyone perceives life differently. We all wish for what we do not have. We fall victim to thinking that we’d be happier if only certain things were different. The jokes on us. Happiness actually only comes from within and this is a result of accepting all our physical attributes and the situations in which we find ourselves. This does not mean that you do not need to strive for better. Oh hell no, that’s just the platform to build on. The mindset of “I’m happy with where I am, how I look and what I do”, puts you in the perfect head-space to be able to improve and excel at anything because it’s always easier starting from a positive place.

I love the sentiment; happiness is not an end destination, meaning to not put your ‘HAPPINESS’ on hold until you achieve something. In order to be happy you need to be content on your journey towards your achievements. If this is not the case you may experience short lived euphoria or an empty, hollow happiness; thinking that it will be better when you reach your next big goal. This negatively charged, goal-shifting habit is extremely detrimental to our well-being. The same goes for putting yourself down if you do not achieve a specific goal you’ve set. We should in actual fact be so proud of ourselves for just trying and even more ecstatic if we achieve what we set out to do. Mistakes Not Perfection

LIFE is not perfect. We are not perfect. Our friends, family, partners and co-workers are not perfect. Or are they? When they are in agreement with us and all our actions align, then we see everything as perfect, but when anything is out of sync then it’s as if the whole world is crashing down upon us. Everyone needs to do what they think is best for them and their situation, so things may not always align to your will. In some instances it will be perfect for you and in others, it will feel perfect for someone else. People often place unnecessary expectations on themselves and others to be and act a certain way. We’re normally over the moon, thinking that our world is perfect if things play out as we hoped, but should this not be the case, then major unhappiness ensues. Why does one perfect occurrence need to be at the expense of another or is this just how we perceive life?

The way of the world is to evolve and a conscious internal mind-shift could be the emotional evolution we need to see our lives and ourselves as perfect. Could this really be the answer to a blissful life?  If you’re distraught by the current view of your life then why not try on a different perception for size? What’s the worst that could happen; everything may still seem the same or a happy life may be your perfect fit? 

So to conclude: “The perfect solution for us may be to graciously accept what we now perceive as imperfect, whether in ourselves or others because that very imperfection may be what is needed to bring about the perfection we so desperately seek.”Imperfection Perfection

5 Petal FlowerThe Fibonacci sequence, each number being the sum of the two numbers that precede it, (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, … to infinity), often appears in nature; like the number of petals in a flower. These petals are also placed according The Golden Ratio, at 0.618034 per turn around a 360° circle, which allows the best possible exposure to sunlight.

Advice, Compassion, Respect

Respect, Accept or JUST Tolerate

Multi-Ethnic WorldSocial media has assisted in connecting people all over the world with each other. It’s so nice that like-minded people are able to connect with one another. After all, to feel like you belong, is one of the human fundamentals. Unfortunately this comes at a cost because we as humans always find a way of tainting everything. Now this amazing tool that is meant to benefit us all is being used to hurt and harm.

You may question: Why would people do this? The reasons behind these acts of unkindness is often because of fear. Many are afraid of the unknown. Different concepts demand different levels of understanding that some people may find difficult to comprehend. Obviously this could be made easier if they were open to educating themselves. Ignorance is bliss’ is an outdated statement which we no longer have the right to hide behind. There is just too much knowledge at our disposal, especially thanks to the internet.

New Brain Software

Now the question still remains: Why are there those who refuse to take the time to obtain all the facts before drawing conclusions? It’s simple; because that’s the easier choice. Change is not always easy, so why struggle with something that’s not beneficial to me. That’s the other thing; humans are selfish by nature, so thank goodness for those who are compassionate and show love no matter what.

Misinformation Free

There have always been people throughout history who have fought for the right to equality for all. The weirdest thing is that right now there are so many ‘WOKE’ people who are open-minded and challenging the social norms of the past, yet the same can be said of those who are still stuck with archaic mindsets. It’s our duty to ensure that the former out-ways the latter.

Thumbs Up Kindness

We can only hope and pray to be fortunate enough to live a long and happy life, with the knowledge we have acquired from our life lessons. The onus then lies upon us to put these into practice and pass it onto the generations to come so that we create a more tolerant, forgiving, respectful and accepting society. One in which everyone can safely express their feelings knowing that they will not be ridiculed or judged. Our world should be a safe-haven for all without prejudice.
