this is your official Permission Slip to let go of perfection.
just coming off of almost a week-long redirect to Plan B in my own life (husband sick, family plans including two trips cancelled), i am reminded once again that best laid plans are always good to be made with a healthy dose of grace so when things go awry (they always do), you can bounce rather than crumble.
resilience is such an important secret super power to have, and it will help you live a more happy creative life. let’s face it, nothing ever goes exactly as planned, ever, so cultivating the ability to sway with the wind, accept the imperfect, and let go into the moment is so important.
‘hold on loosely’, that’s how the song goes, right?
and we all know that the lessons and growth are in the humbling wake of imperfection, in figuring out an alternate route, a different approach, a new perspective. though wrapped in frustration and maybe even disappointment, imperfection is often a gift.
as we end our Wishful month of celebrating (though keep on celebrating all year round!), i hope we can all embrace a bit of fallibility in our lives. embrace it in yourself, and embrace it in others, and go gently and with a little more kind compassionate fairy dust to sprinkle around. so celebrate the quirks, the bumps, the missteps, and even the failures that help us come closer to what truly matters to us! delight in detours, revel in re-do’s, find wonder in wrong-turns, and then party like a rock start in the possibilities.
