The desire to change ourselves is a seductive, sometimes addictive craving.
We get drawn to the endless quest to find every little thing that might be wrong with us, that might not be perfect, that might be improved.
What we often don’t realize is that while there is always potential to do better, when we focus too much on the things that are not the way we like them, we miss out on celebrating and enjoying how far we have come and the perfection that we are in the moment.
Always looking for something to fix within ourselves can be a distraction. It can keep us from starting something new, from doing what we love to do, from taking that one step forward.
Working on ourselves is a good thing, in balance. Working on ourselves until everything is perfect, is an illusion. It is an illusion because we are perfect.
Yes, we can be better, yet we are perfect just the way we are.
