“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.”- Anna Quindlen
When we lose ourselves staring at the sky, admiring the clouds, is the place we may question the idea of perfection. There is something magnificent as clouds make their way across the earth, constantly colliding, flowing, and ultimately evolving into a new masterpiece. We never look at clouds and wonder if they would change into something more perfect. Therefore, we have to wonder why we as humans strive to attain the elusive idea of perfection. Instead of allowing ourselves the patience and ability to evolve, we endeavor to be without faults. When we resist what is real inside of us, in this moment of transformation, we are truly unable to flow with all the grace necessary to be our own form of exceptional. There is beauty to be found in nature and when we are able to reflect that beauty, incredible things can happen.
Today, are you letting the idea of perfection deter you from being the extraordinary individual you are? If so, look at the clouds and allow yourself the freedom to flow.
