Nobody’s Perfect.

As someone who has struggled for a long time with a tendency to strive for perfection I have recently, as part of my recovery, started to accept that my constant attempts to maintain so-called “perfection” within my life really aren’t worth it. In fact they are actually highly overrated and limiting. Plus, I’ve never even come close to reaching them anyways! I can only be the best possible version of myself and being “perfect” is simply not in the cards.

First of all, you can’t ever really achieve this because, as the wisest of all moms’ say, “nobody’s perfect” and in fact:

Secondly, being “perfect” or “straight-laced” is pretty boring. It’s time for me to live a little 😉

Lastly, and most importantly, I know that I have many imperfections…I am no where near perfect, which I’m sure many of you are aware of haha, but I’m truly starting to dig my “quirks.” They make me who I am. The best and brightest version of me 🙂

So, even though I might be a little crazy,  scattered, and vulnerable, at the end of the day I am also charming, loving, and thoughtful and all of these combined make me whole. I’m learning to love my entire self and that comes with accepting my quirks. I am moving away from striving for perfection in my life and focusing more on who I am in recovery and who I am in a healthy state. It has been a very long time since I have been truly happy and healthy so I am a little scared of the unknown, but I am feeling ready and I am excited to see what is to come!

It is time to just be me. Imperfections and all.
