“Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.”
― Salvador Dalí
I’m so super in love with that quote. As hard as we may try, Perfection is unattainable. We can give it up. As I took this photo of Phoenix at breakfast this morning, I thought ” And it’s because of her imperfect, sweet, toothless, grin that this so utterly adorable.” When it comes to beauty, whether it’s physical beauty, or inner beauty, we are drawn to the little quirks, the little imperfections of the people we love, the people we admire.
I would personally be sad if when Phoenix danced in the kitchen on a Tuesday morning she did it perfectly, and not in her too small pajamas that make her bellybutton stick out and her underwear show. Bonus imperfection points if the kitchen is messy as hell.
Our imperfections make us vulnerable. When we are vulnerable, we open, the real us shows. The real us? Well that’s the beautiful us worth knowing.
During this year I’m hoping to trust the process, continuing on this path. May it be imperfect, messy, real, full of life, love, and even mistakes. It’s inevitable right? I hope to do it all with awareness, and with a heart full of gratitude. Join me.
Let’s do this thing.
