Perfection Is a Myth

Stop trying to live it.

Life is messy. Everyone makes mistakes.

If you aren’t making mistakes, that means you’re not trying to grow, learn, or become.

We have such a nasty stigma surrounding mistakes. It’s as if we think making a mistake is the same thing as failing. Or being bad, wrong, or flawed somehow. As if making a mistake means we aren’t good enough or worthy.

Which is a ridiculous notion. That I totally struggle with.


Next time you make a mistake, don’t be mean to yourself.

Instead, ask yourself what you can learn from it? How it can help you move forward more effectively.

It’s a learning curve. NOT a stick to beat yourself with.
