It is a cliche but I am a perfectionist.
Correction: I am a Recovering Perfectionist.
For most of my life my inner Perfectionist has kept me stuck; rigid with fear of moving forward. What if I made a mistake? What if I failed?
She was in direct conflict with my inner Creator and held my Freedom in her grasp.
Most women are perfectionists at least in some area of their lives, if not all. We know this can be one of our biggest blocks to achieving our goals yet we hang onto it as if our life depends on it.
I guess the life we know does.
When and why did we become so fixated on everything being perfect? Why is it so hard to let go of? What are we afraid will be revealed about ourselves if we do?
If we chose to be Imperfect Perfectionists we would know that:
It is perfectly OK to be imperfect.
It is perfectly OK to be WHO WE REALLY ARE in all our perfections and imperfections.
It is perfectly OK to just BE.
To give yourself permission to be fully YOU, you need to release your inner Perfectionist. You need to understand that perfectionism comes from a place of scarcity, lack, people-pleasing and fear of vulnerability which perpetuates the cycle of you not feeling good enough or afraid of being found out and so the pursuit of perfectionism continues.
It’s a bumpy road to recovery but one that will set you free to follow your heart, listen to your intuition and open you up to all that you are and desire.
What areas of your life does perfectionism limit you moving forward?
What would you be doing differently if you were free of perfectionism?
How would you FEEL?
The next time you have a goal you wish to accomplish I invite you to ask yourself: what would happen if I chose to be imperfect?
You wouldn’t wait another second. You wouldn’t wait for approval. You wouldn’t question your value. You wouldn’t question what feels right. You wouldn’t question the risks.
You would JFDI (Just Fucking Do It) already!
Give yourself the permission to go for your goals.
Embrace your inner Imperfect Perfectionist.
You are perfectly imperfect.
