Sometimes, in our urge to better ourselves, to expand and improve and grow as souls in human containers, we mistakenly think our goal is to be perfect.
When we’re doing a certain task, there’s this keen urge to do it right.
When we’re trying to change habits, there’s this keen urge to do it perfectly.
And of course, it’s impossible to do things right or perfectly, because we’re humans and humans aren’t designed that way.
We’re richly, beautifully, marvelously imperfect.
And this is what makes us whole.
We’re not computers, robots, automatons.
We’re richly emotional, deeply sensitive, fully feeling human beings who are here for a wide range of experiences, including imperfect and imprecise ones.
Whenever I find myself thinking I need to do things perfectly, I take a moment and look at things from soul perspective.
And I remember: we aren’t here for perfection.
We’re here for soul growth.
So go ahead:
Eat the ice cream.
Resist the urge to be perfect.
See how it frees you.
