I Am An Imperfect Being... But it's OK

Nothing major in my life has changed right now... but lately my heart has been open and receiving to undeserved grace that I have received from others and my HP lately.

Maybe I have finally given up the fight in the battle of perfection. I have accepted that no matter how hard I try, I am an imperfect being and I am inevitably going to hurt people, mess up, and fail. Sounds depressing right?

It's not. It has been so freeing to release myself from the bondage and pressure of trying to be perfect. I have a strong faith in my higher power, but sometimes the legalism that some churches/religion contain seep into my faith and get ahold of me. I expect myself to reach a unattainable level of perfection, and beat myself up for not doing everything right.

In giving up the fight, I am able to look upwards and remember that I am not alone, and that I am forgiven. When I am still enough and stop trying so hard, I am able to meditate, pray, and reflect. I ask my Higher Power to bring to my attention to any major flaws and blind spots he wants me to work on, as well as things I should make amends to people for. Afterwards, I smile in gratitude for the grace I have been shown, and I am able to be gracious to myself and others. 

 Hope you have a wonderful day :)
Blessings,
Rachel
