On the tail end of another weekend and preparing to embrace another week. The weather wasn’t as bad as it normally was here in the Valley and I almost enjoyed it, but my mind was elsewhere. When life happens it does and there’s nothing you can do but roll with it. At any given moment you can choose to be an optimist or a pessimist as those are really your two only choices when dealing with anything.
Even prior to Friday, there were quite a few thoughts floating around my head about a lot of things but I reeled them in a little as the word/concept of perfect stuck in my head.
Tell me what you know about perfection. What does it mean to be perfect? What does perfect mean to you?
Let me tell you what I was thinking initially based on conversations I have had with people about the perfect man/woman. Honestly, there is no such thing as a perfect person as we all have imperfections. As we learn about the imperfections in ourselves and in others it is possible to find a man/woman that is the perfect complement to the person that we are. If we are mature enough in the mind to see that we have already built a solid foundation to a successful relationship.
“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly” Sam Keen
“We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” Tom Robbins
I often hear people talk about doing something when things are right or the situation is perfect. That time is not in the future, but is in the very moment that the opportunity presents itself to think about making a move. Time waits for no man, and tomorrow is not promised so why is it that we don’t believe that things aren’t perfect in this moment? How much better can things get? Right now, you are alive, you are breathing, with sound mind and body, so why not take action to put you closer to where you want to be. There’s no more perfect a moment than right now, because believe or not things couldn’t be more perfect.
“When you realize how perfect everything is you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky” Buddha
“Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” Anthony Robbins
Just as we are all unique in our own ways, our perspectives afford us an opportunity to see what is perfect in different ways. What are some things that you can think of that we all see as perfect no matter what?
“A hug is the perfect gift; one size fits all, and nobody minds if you exchange it.”
What about you seems to be perfect? If there is one thing that should be perfect, it should be your faith. Doesn’t matter what you have faith in, but that should be one area that you have a belief that your faith in whatever is perfect.
“The reason birds can fly and we can’t is simply that they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings” James Matthew Barrie
My thoughts were probably all across the board, but surely there was something here that may have made you take a deeper look at something you have experienced, are experiencing, or plan to experience in the future. My life isn’t perfect and surely a large majority of my decisions haven’t been perfect, but they have been perfect for the life that I am destined to live.
As you move forward in this new week and prepare to get closer to living the life that is perfect for you and your family, I ask that you reach out to your family, friends, and loved ones as often as you can. No man or woman knows the day nor the hour when you won’t be able to pick up the phone, send a text, or reach out to let someone know you care.
I ask a small favor that you send up prayers for my family and extended family as we deal with the terminal illness of a loved one. Next couple of days are going to be rough and we are going to need the strength.
Only thing that I know for certain right now that every thing that you want or need can be perfect for you if you: Live life, Be phenomenal, and remember #Positivemovementsforward always.
“Just because nobody complains doesn’t mean all parachutes are perfect.” Benny Hill
“”Now” is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. You don’t need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating.” Barbara Sher
