There is a high standard of perfection that undoubtedly we all hold ourselves to. We have been told at some point in our lives that we’re not good enough. Not pretty enough, trained , creative, smart enough, leaving us feeling as we’re not worthy. Social media, television, magazines, peers, have all set the standard for us. And they set it high-impossible to catch. We watch people’s highlight reel and compare our lives to it. The extraordinary things are showcased to us on a social media feed but not the real every day life things. Instead of realizing this, we try to reach this unattainable life. We let the world decide what a good life is.
We tell ourselves that once we reach the unattainable, it’s then I’ll be a great mother, good friend, outstanding coworker. It’s then I’ll be happy.
Well, this couldn’t be anymore wrong.
The party you throw doesn’t have to look Pinterest worthy. You don’t need all the fancy things of your favorite television star. The body you’re obsessing over on Instagram isn’t healthy for you. Facebook friends and Twitter followers aren’t reality.
Perfection does not mean worthy.
Focus on making a meaningful life. Influence those around you. Inspire people to see all the positive things. You deserve real happiness, laughing so much your stomach hurts, memories that you get to re tell to your grandchildren. This is attainable.
What you have, who you are, and where you are right now is enough.
You are enough.
