How have we gotten stuck on thinking of perfection as an attainable and stationary position rather than a direction?
Going back to the early philosophers we get definitions of 'perfectio' that include attaining a state where 'nothing could be better' and something that has 'attained its purpose'.
It's interesting to think that both of these positions describe an end state…
We know that people who get hooked on the need for perfection tend to have more issues with depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
Remember that beautiful Beatles song: 'LET IT BE' ...
DANCE WITH IT! EXPERIENTIAL APPS
An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas…
This one is really easy!
Think of your 'cracks' - you know, the things that others have criticized in you and that have been part of your own 'not good enough' list.
Now, make a list of these attributes - both physical and emotional.
Next make a list of the things that you've 'done wrong' in your life.
NOW IMAGINE THESE TWO LISTS ARE YOUR OWN PRECIOUS AND PERSONAL LIFE LEARNING MANUAL!
