Practice does not make perfect!

Practice does not make perfect!

Perfect is relative you know? Yes,  I know you grew up hearing, “Practice makes perfect,” or “It has to be perfect.” or maybe “Perfection is key!” No wonder we have so many perfectionists (not really) like me in the world.

As I consider the word perfect,  and all it stands for,  I am bewildered to ever believe that I could ever be without any flaws, challenges, defects or short comings. I mean, to really think that I do things accurately and completely (even after doing them over and over) is well, fooling myself.

Think about a few individuals in your life and way (weigh if your perfect) O_o your beliefs, knowledge, dedication against theirs and I can guarantee you that you will have a different expectation of perfect than them.

Now, what I do know is that practice can make permanent. I mean, I have many permanent skills that I’ve honed over the year’s because I put in the time practicing things they would one day be perfect.

So, today, I give you permission to smile at those who expect you to be perfect and say, “Today, I am being perfectly imperfect.” Then,  smile and go practice.

Naturally, “Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful!

    Haha I love this! I am very hard on myself, a perfectionist to the core, and it all stems from anxiety. I’m learning to manage all of it every day and learning to accept not being perfect every day.. It’s a learning process indeed! Have fun making imperfection look good Yulunda! 🙂 -Iva

      Bahaha. You just described me! However, as of the last year, I’ve learned to throw up my hands and say, “Forget it!” I’m not stressing over perfect no more. I will do the best I can. Happy Wednesday Iva!

      Hello Beautiful Trina. Nope, you don’t have to be perfect. In fact, let’s just live life likes it’s Golden because it is and let God handle all the rest.

    Here recently I have been lightening up on myself and even my family, and can I say it is a freedom that I can not explain. And tis’ true that life does not have to be perfect to be lovely, someone else would love to have our life right now, so we betta love it!
    Be blessed beautiful and happy Friday!

      Yes Indeed. Relaxing, letting things flow and keeping the Faith is my focus. Life is too short to sweat all of the small things. I dare not strive to reach perfect as I’ll never reach it as the stress will get Mr first. Happy Saturday XOXO 💋
