What if you could accept it? What if you could truly be with it? What if you were able to sit back and appreciate that your imperfections are truly beautiful, meant to be, part of your authenticity and truth? What if you could let go of the judgement and comparison? We all do it, comparing is part of the human ego. How much and how often and why we do it is, though, within our control. We have grown up comparing how good we are compared to others...how smarter, how slower, how shorter, how happier, how wiser, how richer, how prettier. We keep count, check and balance. How does it serve us? What do we learn? We learn someone will always seem to be better at or be worse at, someone will have more or have less, be thinner or be heavier and so on. How does that serve us, this comparison? It is a fact of life, that by now we should expect and find a way to BE with.
Instead, some of us use this information to really dig at our Self. We critique, we judge and we blame or shame our Self thinking that this will somehow make us change. Maybe we do change, odds are though we change in a way that is not supportive of our soul's needs. Our soul invites us each moment of each day to release this judgment and live as though we don't need to be fixing everything. Our soul longs for us to show up and be present and see the beauty that we are, that surrounds us and that is happening in our life. To see the beauty to be found in our less than, in our imperfect world and in the miracles and in the abundance.
Julia Cameron once wrote, "Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are." It is when we release judgment and embrace the wholeness of who we are, where we are and how we are that we begin a whole new way of living. We let go of the need to fix and we find we have so much more time in life to do what our soul longs for! To live life fully.
