Clarity From Webster?

Perfection is "the condition, state, or quality of being free or 
as free as possible from all flaws or defects."

What an oxymoron.  Perfection and being free?  Striving to be the perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect partner, the perfect friend is anything but freeing.  I am all for becoming the best YOU you can be, without feeling like perfection is the final destination.  

To FREE yourself is to actively "release from captivity, confinement, or slavery.” Seriously, how captive or confined does the journey to perfection keep you? One more pound, one more raise, one more award.  How about this?  Let’s release from captivity our inner beauty, our funny sense of humor, and our complete love of life?  Let’s open the door of confinement and let the beautiful woman wander with nothing but joy and love for herself.

Thank you Webster for this reminder, to FREE ourselves is to ”release from physical obstruction, restraint, or entanglement.”  The plight of perfection can shackle you to a point that renders you immovable and frozen. As we live our very full lives, pushing to create that next best version of ourselves we can hit a point where fear and insecurities rule our world.  Slow down, breathe, and remember your platoon of warrior women that will help you find again your beautiful wonderful self.

Lastly, to FREE yourself is to ”remove something undesirable or restrictive from.” The month of September is about releasing the pressure of perfection.  It is about loving your flaws and defects and understanding that you are a beautiful and loved person.  Don’t underestimate the power of wander.  Go wander in the hills, the shopping mall, or the beach.  Your imperfect self is perfection enough.
