What does perfect look like for you? For me it’s always been about everything aligning just the right way. Like when you’re putting a puzzle together right before you put in that last piece. Lately I’m seeing that there’s no such thing as a perfect life, and there’s beauty in imperfect situations.
Many times our expectations can blind us from the possibilities and opportunities that come our way. We want our blessings to look a certain way and be packaged perfectly. Then if it doesn’t, we pass it up and continue to wait for things to happen the way we imagined them.
Last night I was sitting in my living room floor looking at my house which has been in complete disarray for weeks smiling. Usually (ok, often times) a messy house and long to do list has me stressed out and running around like I lost my head. For some reason I was happy amongst my chaos.
This time a year ago I remember dreaming of my life being the way it is right now. I was living in my parent’s house with all my belongings in storage unit and would go to bed praying that one day have my own place. Now I have a place to call my own and I’ve grown so much mentally and emotionally from the woman I was a year ago.
My life isn’t perfect or what I dreamed it would be at this stage of my life. However, I’ve come to see the happiness in this moment along with what it represents. My house may never be completely clean, I may never catch up on all my emails, and who knows where my prince charming is right now. Instead of focusing on that I’m relishing in the blessings that I have in the present and enjoying the present of perfectly imperfection I’m able to experience.
