I feel like de-layering today. There are so many layers to all of us, different emotions, feelings and thoughts. I always like to say that life at its best is grey (not black & not white but grey). We are always trying to reach perfection whether it is in relationships, love, hate, looks, body image, houses, cars, fashion and the list goes on & on. There is never a pause to really think, is this what I really seek? Perfection in all aspects and what happens once we have it? Ever heard of people who have a lot of money struggling to find even more money? Or people who have perfect bodies struggling with body image issues. It is because we are always seeking validations or someone else’s version of the perfect world. Always trying to see it from a picture perfect setting.
I have been at all of these places and still I often end-up where I want something to be perfect but then I have to pause and remind myself that life at its best is grey. This realization has changed my life. I have learn to love myself & those around me, I have learned to accept the imperfections of myself and my relationships. There is peace in accepting and forgiving your deepest darkest secrets and flaws as part of you and then simply moving on.
These pictures are an intimate reflection of my journey from seeking perfection to in the end accepting myself for just me. I hope you liked today’s post and thank you for stopping by!
