this week's affirmation is… i deserve to be imperfect, je mérite d’être imparfait

this week's affirmation is…

i deserve to be imperfect, je mérite d’être imparfait

not one of us is perfect

perfection is an unrealistic and unattainable standard

embracing your imperfections and acknowledging that they are a part of what makes you unique is healthy

striving for self-improvement and personal growth is admirable, but it should be driven by a desire to become the best version of yourself, not by an unrealistic pursuit of perfection

imperfections are a natural part of being human, and they can provide opportunities for learning, growth, and self-acceptance

embrace your imperfections as part of your journey toward becoming the best version of yourself

enjoy...

i hope these stories help you as they helped me

from

The Guardian

(author Sarah Marsh and Guardian Readers)

The Pressure of Perfection: Five Women Tell Their Stories

 

next, set the mood with a ballad

"Imperfections" by Celine Dion

a song examining the lens of self-criticism

 

next, our book selection...

(author Brené Brown)

The Gifts of Imperfection: 10th Anniversary Edition

Brené writes, "this book is an invitation to join a wholehearted revolution. a small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, 'my story matters because i matter.' revolution might sound a little dramatic, but in this world, choosing authenticity and worthiness is an absolute act of resistance."
