Too Close for : Comfort :

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing-

Raise your hand if you consider yourself to be a perfectionist? Good. Now keep your hand raised if you expect those around you to follow in your footsteps?

This past Saturday morning during a powerful yoga class, I made a series of mistakes, and I want to share with you in this brief post – What a relief it is to make a mistake without belittling yourself. Without a doubt, I want to do the very best I can, but expecting myself or anyone else to achieve perfection is unrealistic and a denial of my true spirit. Accepting my many “imperfections” does not mean I can allow myself to become unfocused during yoga class or life for that matter, but rather that we can set realistic goals for ourselves.

Daily Meditation:

I don’t have to be perfect to smile and enjoy life, and as a wise yoga instructor once said during class – Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.

    Wise words… Also remember that we are all perfect in our imperfection! What a boring world if we were all the same.
    Take care!

      Between you and I … Can you keep a secret?!? I like to call the handstand/plank workout – “Mindful Calisthenics” and many of my early posts explored ways to strengthen the mind, body and spirit connection. The secret being – Smile, listen to your body and have fun 🙂
      May your heart be filled with warmth and happiness – Take care!

    Powerful. Identifying those demons first is a chore in itself. . .
