💎Perfect is the Enemy of Good Enough.


This is a very imperfect photo of our daughter's drawing from when she was 5 years old. My inner #perfectionists almost took me over but I resisted. The #drawing is excellent, though. I #love the head inside the elephant. What could it mean?! Ok, ok, I digress.

💎

I am far from perfect; some might argue I am quite the opposite, deeply faulted in my expressions and my behaviour, especially if you ask our teenager.

But I am GOOD ENOUGH.

WE ARE ALL GOOD ENOUGH.

If you have seen some of my recent videos of me dancing or talking about what I do and love, they are far from perfection. I embrace my imperfect self at this moment, but I was not always like this.

💎

I used to hate loosing as a kid. Mistakes were to be avoided at all costs. I grew up with some of my family members, seeing perfectionism as a skill to have and be proud of; anything else was seen as a disaster. Now let me tell you what a #disaster is: the amount of time, effort and repressing of the #authentic self in order to achieve perfection. Perfectionism, it's an elusive thing; we never quite get to it, so we are constantly working for it, trying, feeling unfulfilled, #shameful and #guilty. It's tiring and at some point I just got fed up with it.

💎

I am aware that this pattern of mine has to be looked at with #vigilant eyes as it tends to come out when shit hits the fan, so I actively put myself in situations where I am not good at and need to improvise.

My videos are not rehearsed and not overthought as the minute I start analysing the idea, the authenticity goes out of the window.

My blog post is also written with very little preparation, and I avoid editing. Lucky you.

When I do my events, I let myself flow with the flow and allow people to be as they are, try not to expect anything and keep in mind that the events I do are not only a self-discovering experience for the participants but also for me.

💎

I get inspired by humans that dive into their authentic selves, #embracing #shadow and #light. I hope you also have those around you and, if not, come and join one of

⭐️ The Monday Club⭐️ sessions and meet fellow curious, brave souls. Mistakes are encouraged, connections will be forged while we learn something new.

💎

May we all dump perfect into the bin, embrace imperfections, mistakes and good enough instead.

Love, Nora
