The Gifts of Imperfection

I am currently taking a journaling class with Dr. Brene Brown focusing on the journey from "what will people think?" to "I am enough." We are reading her Gifts of Imperfection, journaling, tapping into courage, connection and compassion. It is hard to look so far internal and realize that we can only give to others as much as we have given to ourselves.

It is a process. This year I've decided I am letting myself off the hook. I am done striving for perfection, which will never come. I'm going to be real, messy, love openly, accept love freely and try new things. It's time to let go of the struggle to "fit in" and instead become me and belong. And part of that is realizing that I am imperfect and that is okay.

I'm Imperfect and I'm Enough

"Cultivating a Wholehearted life is like trying to reach a destination. It's like walking toward a star in the sky. We never really arrive, but we certainly know that we're heading in the right direction." ~ Brene Brown
