Instead of making the next best possible decision I found myself armed with a litany of "what if's." These 'what if's' seemed to cripple me from moving forward. I was frozen in my black and white thinking. It's either got to be A or B, and what if I missed thinking about C?
Thank goodness for my mama...she scooped me up in a big hug and her words soothed my heart! We had a lovely heart to heart and a good ole' cry!
One of my favorite researchers on perfectionism, Brenee Brown teaches that perfectionism gets us tangled up in what others might think about us, whereas healthy striving keeps us centered with the notion, 'how can I improve?'
As I sit with this exciting decision that lays ahead of me, I am looking forward to answering how I can improve my life by making it!
I hope that this sharing benefits you in some way. I find it all too easy in this day and age to hide behind things looking perfect. Yoga poses appear perfect, significant others are perfect, life looks perfect, but in actuality, we are all just doing the best that we can!
I want to be real and to share experiences that are unfolding in an effort that someone else might feel safe and willing to share. Life can be messy, experiences can be challenging, they can also be intensely beautiful. There is a range of opportunity to experience this life. What information is this moment offering to you...how is this decision, or this moment helping you to improve?
May You Sweetly Seek:)
