Perfection Revisited

30 Day Blogging Challenge #29

One major thing I’ve learned during this blogging challenge– I like to word vomit.  I really do. It’s fun.

Let’s go back to my little ~chat~ on perfection.  The notion of perfection isn’t real, what is real is you.  As a society we build these walls, and we build these canvases of so-called standards that are impossible to live up to.

When did our world become one of comparison? When did our would become one of putting more glory on other people than on ourselves? When did we lose the importance of self love? When did we begin to live for other people’s ideals?

It’s sad.  It’s really sad.  I wrote about this a bit in my blog post — pretty sure I should just start calling them blog rants — called You Are Not Selfish I focused in on the misconception that putting yourself first is in no way, shape, or form selfish.  And that when we are born, we are born with the right to own our lives and control them– nobody else has that right in terms of your life.

I get really frustrated when I see our world conforming to social ideals that have been engraved into our brains.  When the reality is, what makes the world beautiful is the diversity we give it.  What makes the world grow is each and every person adding their own unique contribution.

Nobody in the world is better at being you than you are.  So, I have one question…

Why on Earth would you give up the immense power you are given to create yourself?

I know it is much easier said than done, but you should not feel pressure to do something because it is cool, or because everybody is doing it. You should not change your feelings about something because the people around you disagree. You should not hide from chasing your dreams because you are worried about what others will think.  Most importantly, you should not live your life for others.

 You should live your life for yourself.  

We all are given one life to live, why waste is chasing outside satisfaction when you can spend it finding happiness and inner peace?

Perfection is you.  You are perfection.  You have it already, there is no need to chase it, because then— you are running from it.
