We’re all totally flawed and broken.

Wounded, wrong and totally awesome.

Trying to be Perfect

I wasted a lot of time trying to be perfect. But the definitions and requirements of perfect changed depending on who was looking.

I was always failing someone’s test, so I stopped playing.

I gave up trying to be… anything for others, and started looking to see what I could be for myself.

What I found was a deeply flawed and broken human being. But that was okay… Because we all are.

And the more I became gentle and patient and forgiving of my own failures and imperfections – the more I could feel that towards others.

(and don’t think for a second that I can do this 100% of the time… or even 50% of the time – it’s still a constant reminder and a struggle to be patient and forgiving and gentle with myself and others…)

I don’t care how perfect someone looks or acts or appears to be – I guarantee… we are all flawed and broken. Every last one of us. It’s a wonderful, universal truth.

The Myth of Completion

We’re never going to get to ‘done’.
We’re never going to be finished and perfect.

I used to think that as soon as I healed all my crap I could start living the life I always wanted… but it doesn’t just ‘stop’ and then everything’s AMAZING.

The healing and the learning and the failing and the mistakes and the trying again… IS the life.

It took me the first half of my life to get that. It took me the first half of my life to see the perfect amazingness of that.

Now I get to LIVE the second half knowing that we’re all crazy and f*cked up and beautifully perfect in our chaos.

Ahhhh…. freedom.
