Embracing imperfection

Standard

So it happened!!  I failed my challenge to blog every day for 30 days!  Or did I?  One of the things I’d like to share is the notion that we somehow need to be perfect at everything we do!! The house being clean from top to bottom, kids’ lunches always having all 4 food groups, being perfect at your job every day!  NEWSFLASH: not right to expect that of ourselves every single day.  I think if we “show up” and do the best we can every day, it should be enough. After all the only person we are competing with is ourselves. I say we cut ourselves some slack and embrace our imperfections as our new perfect for me…not any one else.  I promise you will be happier in the end!

Incidentally, I did it on purpose to not post a blog yesterday so that I can share my thoughts with you about it today.  Be happy and laughing. How ever you decide to spend your day today, know that it’s not coming back, so enjoy every moment…with a smile!

 

The happy sound of silence

Standard

Today, I had the most awesome blessing of enjoying a day filled with silence.  Oprah once said: “Alone time is when I distance myself from the voices of the world so I can hear my own”.  The house was so quiet I could hear even the most subtle creak or drip.  It was a prime opportunity to spend the day in meditation and self-reflection.  I have never (until today) spent a better part of the day in silence.  I feel so relaxed and calm but most of all I have come to realize a better sense of direction for my life which not too long ago was at a crossroads.  I enjoyed beautiful visions during meditation and was compelled to create afterward.  I have included a pic of that creation.  Looking at it a little while later, I realize it is my life; a life more serene, more alive and one that is coming out of the woods, confident in the dreams I am compelled to pursue. A perfect day… I feel so happy!

What makes you happy?  Share your thoughts 🙂
