What If Our Goal Was To Be As Imperfectly Perfect As Possible?

How imperfect can you allow yourself to be?

How would it feel to strive not for perfection, but IMPERFECTION?

What if being as imperfect as possible was the very key to unlocking our greatest, badassest selves?

What becomes possible when we allow ourselves to show up as the most imperfect versions of ourselves?

Why would we do this?

✨Because showing up imperfectly is more important than not showing up at all

✨ Because doing it imperfectly is more important than not doing it at all

✨ Because embracing our imperfections allows us to heal…lowers the expectations on ourselves just enough so we can do the inner work needed to move from the pain and into possibility.

And when the world is full of people believing in imperfect possibility? Just imagine what can happen.

No pressure though, lol.

Showing up imperfectly allows us to honor ourselves and our self-worth

We are enough just as we are.

We matter and are as worthy as the person next to us.

Us, in all our glorious flows and imperfections, have just as much value as our dearest loved ones.

We know perfection is unattainable and yet…

So stop striving for it. Allow it to be messy and imperfect.

Revel in the imperfectness because it means you showed up and the world needs more people who show up.

How are you going to show up imperfectly today?

What magic are you going to bring into the world because you showed up knowing that your inherent worth and value are tied to your imperfections?

What happens when you bring massive self-acceptance to the table?

You put in the effort in everything else you do from parenting to spousing to employeeing to leading to friending to everything in-between.

Put the effort in here, to acknowledge and embrace ALL your imperfections and just see how much higher you hold your head up; feel the confidence in your swagger.

Because you are showing up. Perfection be damned.

And you, magical creature, are glorious 💃🏼.

Love, Me

I used to roll my eyes at the notion of self love and loving my life because it felt so far outside the realm of possibilities. I thought both were saved for those who'd escaped childhood unscathed.

But a perfect storm in 2015 had me wake TF up and heal my childhood ish. Along the way, I started to not only love but LIKE myself and I stopped wanting to escape from my life and instead, intentionally create my exciting future. That's saying a lot when you read my stories!

And now? I get to help women all around the world fall in love with themselves, their lives, and create the future THEY want. How cool is that?!?

Make Shit Happen coaching to help you bring your Big Ass Goals w/Soul (BAGS) to life and live your Fuck Yeah. Life doesn't wait. Give your fucks wisely & live your life fully.
