Art of Perfection, What are we living for? Our Struggle to Greatness…

Daily I’m finding ways to challenge myself for more. When I start feeling comfortable with the way things are going I feel the need to create chaos. Why does life always feel like a race? Constantly we strive for perfection because the world says perfection is happiness. You need a good paying job to make more money so you can live in a huge mansion and drive a luxury car. That’s what life is about and that’s what’s going to make us happy. Right? We are flawed beings and that’s what makes us human. This never ending race for the “superficial happy life” is wearing me out. As I become more self-aware and honest with myself I am noticing that this concept of time is a limiting belief. We get so caught up in the future and what we want in the long run that we miss the present. I’m learning to live in the now and enjoy each day. Growing up in a very religious household played a big part on my journey to greatness. As a Christian I was taught that how we lived on earth determined whether we go to heaven or hell when we die. Knowing that my eternal fate depended upon the way I lived, I kept my focus on doing everything right  so I would go to heaven. I was living my life in fear  and not really living because I needed to be this perfect Christian. Now I know that isn’t the case. God wants us to live in the present and focus on today. He isn’t this disciplinarian who only sees black and white. How I live my life now will shape my future. This struggle for greatness is nothing more than an illusion that distracts us from the present. We need to get comfortable with being comfortable. I hope this message leaves you well and that you all get what you want out of life.

Soul Searcher

A million times I question why the way things are supposed to be.

I’ve never tried to complicate the simple things.

It’s dark inside and I cannot hide these feelings.

Take the key and set me free from this misery.

My soul, my heart, my love be with me.

A Moment

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for never giving up on me.

I just wanted to take a moment and let you hear exactly what you mean to me.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank God for bringing me to you.

I just wanted to take a moment and express my love for you.

I just wanted to take a moment and let you know you’re the apple of my eye.

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you my reasons why.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you I love you for being more than my best friend.

I just wanted to take a moment and pray that these moments will never end.

Sanity

Maybe we are all super messed up, some more than others.

We strive so hard to be normal but we can’t hide our differences.

Where is this confusion that we must be perfect?

Our abnormalities make us who we are and attracts others to us.

Don’t succumb to perfection when imperfect is what you are.

Keep smiling and keep your sanity.
