Perfection is in the Imperfection

November 30, 2011

Learn to make a mess out of your life. The best work comes from letting go.

We often times try to hyper-control the outcome of our lives. It never works. We think perfection only comes through control. Actually, perfection comes from the surrender. When we let go of trying to control the result, we usually end up with a much better product. For example, most brilliant creative work is often times found through mistakes. It is when we surrender and do something “wrong” or “unplanned” that we find something even better than we imagined.

We are so fearful of being out of control but if we could find solace in the knowing that when we release control, we give it over to the universe/divine power which knows better than we. You know the saying, “we make a plan and God laughs” – there is nothing more true.

Hyper controlling your life keeps you locked in fear. Surrender opens you up to opportunities that you would have never envisioned for yourself. When you get out of the way of yourself, beautiful opportunities can present themselves.

Perfection is seldom something that is achieved but more often than not is something that is stumbled upon. Almost despite ourselves, we find through our errors and foibles a much better and more satisfying existence. What are you waiting for? Start making a mess!

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
