Here's my monthly #everydaywarriorinspirationalthought: (notes to self I share with others)
There are things in my life sometimes that are damn near perfect; that go off just as - sometimes better - than I envisioned them.
But, moments, people, even I don't always have to be perfect in the way that I think they should be. There are times when things can only be perfect in the way that they are.
I find myself thinking, "Ugh! It's all messed up, now! Shit! The entire moment, experience, human being myself is messed up now, because of one or a few things that went differently than I planned or hoped for. (i.e. 'the temperature was too hot or too cold...it took too long...there was too much traffic...I got a glimpse of their crazy or the part of them that's damaged for a moment or they got a glimpse of mine...or some drama went down 👀...whatever it may be) Nooooo, it's not always all messed up. There are times - sometimes - when I gotta understand, it was just perfect:
The perfect catalyst for growth.
The perfect experience for realizing that being in the flow is sometimes better than planning (and vice versa...lol)
The perfect experience for deeper knowledge of self and others
The perfect experience for better planning next time.
The perfect experience for realizing even with planning things happen that are out of my control
The perfect experience for realizing and honoring my limitations or boundaries
The perfect experience for realizing what works for me and what doesn't
The perfect experience for seeing what certain people awaken in me - the good, the bad and the ugly
The perfect experience for celebrating trauma that's been healed in me and other parts that still may need healing
The perfect experience for enjoying the open arms of comfort and breathing through the unexpected ass whipping of discomfort...lol
AFFIRMATION: I CAN SAY 'I LIKED THAT EXPERIENCE OR I DIDN'T LIKE THAT EXPERIENCE'. BUT, I CAN STOP TRYING SO HARD TO ERASE OR REJECT OR JUDGE MYSELF FOR WHAT I MAY PERCEIVE AS IMPERFECT MOMENTS. I ENTERTAIN THE POSSIBILITY THAT LIFE HAPPENS AND THAT THERE ARE MOMENTS WHEN LIFE CAN BE PERFECT IN ITS IMPERFECTIONS.
