Well crap. I got caught up in the shoulds. You know the ones... the should haves. And the should dos. And the should nots.
I started thinking that I should be doing what everybody else is doing. That what I have to offer is not good enough because it's not like everybody else's. I got caught up looking at other people's programs and looking at other people’s offers and I froze. I stopped being authentic and started being something that I'm not.
The only thing that got me was heartache and stress and overwhelm. Why do I think that I am not good enough because I'm not like everybody else? Why does that become the overriding fear or question that I have?
I started my business because I want to help people. I want to help women who are just like me… Busy, professional women who are unhappy in their current situation, from their relationships (single or otherwise) to their job(s), who are suffering from insomnia, acne, sugar cravings, irregular cycles, this never ending desire to be perfect.
I want to help women realize that it's OK to say no. That it's OK to put yourself first. That it doesn't have to be a struggle. I want to help women stop striving for perfection because it's not attainable and all you're going to do is make yourself miserable.
There's beauty in imperfection. Think about some of the things that you consider the most beautiful. Are they perfect? Would you consider them completely flawless? Some of the most beautiful things I've ever seen have been completely imperfect or completely broken (when you think about it in terms of people).
I don't want to be perfect. I don't want to keep striving for something that is just going to continue to make me unhappy and miserable. I want to embrace my imperfections. I want to embrace the flaws that I have. And I want to teach women to embrace their flaws and their imperfections, their beauty, their inner desires.
I don’t want to do what everyone says I *should* do. I want to be my own unique, authentically best version of ME I can be! I encourage you to do the same. Because, I promise, YOU are amazing exactly as you are!
Stop trying to be perfect. Stop putting yourself last. Stop beating yourself up.
Start loving yourself. Start accepting progress. Start accepting mistakes (because it means you are trying). Start embracing who you are!!
